The 7 Best Things About Fall

Friday, September 25, 2015

Well, it's official! As of this past Wednesday, it's finally FALL. Personally, I find the fall season to be the best one of them all - there's something about this time of year that makes getting up in the morning feel so refreshing and lovely. When I woke up on the 23rd to a calendar that told me it was the first day of autumn, I was stoked. I believe that there's just so much to love about fall, despite the fact that I live in a place where fall doesn't necessarily mean that the weather will be any less hot (#FloridaProbs). Here's what I think are the best things about fall...

1. The Warm, Cozy Feeling in the Air
You can't deny that there's just something totally different about fall that makes life feel so much more worth getting out and enjoying every day. As the weather begins to shift and autumn truly approaches, that feeling of warmth starts to settle in. The happiness and desire to just cuddle up and get cozy or take a nice long walk through the crisp morning air takes over, and the positivity can be seen radiating from every person you see.

2. The Changing Leaves and Cool Breeze
Although the weather in Florida unfortunately doesn't change as intensely as the weather further up north during this time of year, we still get some changes when it comes to the colors of the leaves and a few breezes here and there. Surprisingly, it has actually been a bit cooler than expected lately - either way, all we Floridians can ever do down here is hope fall doesn't wait until the end of the season to finally make an appearance.

3. Fall Fashion
Over-sized sweaters and leggings? There is no better combination! (Well unless you were to throw in some cute booties, then it's perfect.)

4. The Social Vibe
The fall semester in college is always the more fast-paced semester it seems. At the beginning of the school year, everyone is just so much more in-the-zone and ready to get out there - they don't call it Social Season for nothing. Also, this time of year it's neither too hot nor too cold, so you can do just about anything in this kind of weather without a real interference due to weather!

5. The Bath and Body Works Scents
Time to stock up on candles and soap again!

6. The Holidays
Fall holidays are all about spending time with your family and really being grateful for what you have, which is a big reason why this season is such a favorite for me... And the amount of amazing food I get to eat.

7. Pumpkin Everything
From pumpkin foods to pumpkin drinks to just flat out pumpkins in general - everyone loves a good pumpkin this time of year! You can totally sit out on your front porch and drink your Starbucks pumpkin spice latte while you eat delicious pumpkin bread and carve a silly face in a pumpkin that you picked up at a pumpkin patch or your local supermarket and NOT look like a completely obsessed freak.

What's your favorite thing about fall? Here's to a wonderful season filled with dancing leaves, comfy sweaters, and pumpkin spice everything!
