Happy First Day of Fall!!!

Fall is my most favorite of all the seasons and now it is officially here! YAY

Oh my dear, sweet Fall…..I love you so. I am so glad you are finally back and I am looking forward to the next few months we have together. You bring so much joy and happiness to my life, you are truly the BEST of all the seasons…and I don’t care if the other seasons know I think that.

Here are some of the reasons I fell in love with you in the first place:

The weather changes and we have cooler days and nice chilly evenings.

Having the windows open to enjoy the cool, fresh air.

The leaves changing color – SO pretty. (I love going home during the fall because we have the prettiest trees back home)

Wearing fall clothes! Scarves, sweatshirts, jeans, boots, sweaters….ahhh – love it!

It is not light out at 9pm.

Those Fall days where it is really really sunny but really cool, perfection.

Drinking Apple Cider (both hot and cold)

The Smell of Fall


Apple Cinnamon Spice Candles.

Big pots of soup or stew for dinner.

Sitting outside by the fire…..we can do that now!


Though it is not an essential or all weekend long activity, I do like watching football during the fall months.

Snuggling under the blankets on those extra cool nights.

Not sweating or freezing the minute I go outside. It is just perfect.


The return of new TV shows.

Hay rides, corn mazes and anything outside

Going shopping at outdoor malls in preparation for Christmas. The fall is the only time I really enjoy shopping.

Fall decorations

And pretty much everything else that I may have not mentioned!!

If you love fall, please share your favorite things.


  1. I think you hit ALL the good points! Everything you mentioned gave me the warm fuzzies.

    There is no other season that compares to Fall. None.

  2. YAY FOR FALL! I LOOOOOOOOVE FALL! I am the most happiest person in the fall. For real. I think you hit upon all of my reasons for liking fall! Except I'd add Pumpkin Spice Latte's at Starbucks!! And my lovely girlies birthdays are in the fall ... in fact I love the whole entire mohth of October the best. My hubby's bday is in October too! It's just full of goodness! (and for the record, I was very near to having the girls in September, but I just couldn't have that, oh no! Those babies were staying in until October, I was determined! They were born Oct. 2 - perfect!)

  5. This is my favorite season too!

    What I love:

    - taking a bite of a crisp apple straight from the local orchard

    - apple cider (not pasturized... the GOOD stuff)

    - everything pumpkin... carved ones, ones sitting on porches beside mums, pumpkin pie with Cool Whip, really ANY pumpkin dessert

    - perfect fall weather... sunny and 60s with the most beautiful deep blue sky and no clouds

    - the first home football game of the season

    - Homecoming Parade (it goes RIGHT in front of our house and the kids LOVE it)

    Mmmm... It makes me so happy thinking about these things while sweating because it's hot and humid right now. :)

  6. I loved this post!

    Not to be debbie downer, but I cannot wait for this post to come true! Yesterday it was 83 and as muggy as the rain forests of the Amazon. I was a sweaty hog all day. Barf.

  7. All of those things are awesome! Great post...it makes my heart all warm and fuzzy!

  8. What a FUN post! I will not tell the other seasons that Fall is your favorite.

    That photo you chose for the top of the post is AMAZING.

    I am SO JEALOUS.

    Everything that you mentioned made me CRAVE Ohio.



    My favorite thing about fall: the smell. There's just a different smell in the air. It's so crisp. LOVE that. There's nothing better than jeans and sweatshirt weather.
