I'm not gonna lie, I'm a summer kind of girl. But now that fall is upon us, I've decided to do one of those "things I love about fall" posts to show my appreciation for the recent change in weather.
The changing colors of the leaves (so cliche, but how can you deny the refreshing change in shrubbery?)
Hot apple cider
Decorating for Halloween (we're talking skeletons, headstones, purple lights & pumpkins galore. It's the Fiance's favorite holiday, so we go all out)
Any wonderful smelling candle with "spice" in its name
Carving pumpkins & baking the pumpkin seeds
Sitting by the fire (a cozy fireplace is my #1 requirement when I buy a home)
Watching one of my favorite movies, "Hocus Pocus" every other night
Going to Apple Hill to pick apples (I've only done it once, but it was great)
Ellen's Halloween episode (her costume is always hilarious!)
Ugg boots & sweats (if I could live in sweats, I would)
The sound of football on Sunday mornings
Family time (I could never get enough of this!)
Scouting a new haunted house to go to every year
There's candy everywhere! (reese's peanut butter pumpkins, anyone?)
Food for thought: Something I don't love about fall: candy corn. These weird little things freak me out. What are they, any way?
Fall is such a colorful time of year. I'm glad it's finally here!
What are some of your favorite fall features?
