falling for fall...

I typically spend late September and October perpetually confused.  I love everything the season brings: crisp air, pumpkin everything, candy corn, boots, Halloween, football + tailgating, hot chocolate, haunted houses...

There is so much to enjoy.

And yet, I fear the early sunsets, long dark days, and cold bitter weather that is just around the corner. 

Therefore, I struggle to fully embrace the goodness that autumn brings. 

This year, I'm determined to love the season to its fullest.  

I've established a few goals....

  1. Eat as many meals outside as possible 
  2. Take lots of postprandial walks
  3. Go to at least one haunted house
  4.  Carve pumpkins
  5. Master the art of layering
  6. Order my latte spiced or pumpkin whenever possible
  7. Attend as many football games and tailgates as I can
  8. Embrace fall festivals
And, to get myself in the mood, some autumnal inspiration...
