Fall is my favorite. Then Summer. Then Winter (until after New Years, then it is terrible). Then Spring….sorry Spring. In the spirit of the favorite season starting today, let me share a few of my favorite things and sure signs that the autumnal equinox is upon us:
5. The leaves change colors. In Pittsburgh, where I grew up, it is breath-taking. Out here in the west, the wind seems to blow so hard at times, I feel like if I blink, I’ll miss those pretty, dying leaves. If I don’t, I can think of about 10 projects I want to do with leaves, including this one:
I am definitely cutting our last name out of leaves and then maybe mounting in on a canvas and displaying it–gah! I’m not blinking until December. Stay tuned for this project. It’s happening.
4. Fall apparel. It’s the best. I love layering button ups and sweaters and jackets. I am going to be channeling J. Crew’s Marissa Webb this season. She does stripes in an amazing way:
As far as men’s apparel, I’m equally excited for Chris to start wearing a zip-up hoodie under his pea coat or jacket. He’s been doing it since I met him in 2005 and he still rocks it.
3. New episodes of all of our favorite shows!! Robert California had us cracking up last night and Jim’s note to Pam had me tearing up.
2. Hot Apple Cider. Bomb.
1. Our fall snack staple is on the dining room table — honey roasted peanuts and candy corn. We have concluded that two nuts to one candy corn is the ideal ratio…and we’ve already refilled the candy dish–twice. :)
I hope this allowed you to forget the fact that it is 84 degrees outside (here, anyway). Yeeeesh. What’s your favorite thing about Fall?
