Fall Is My Favorite
Today is No D Day, so I won't be mentioning diabetes in today's post. See Mr. Ninjabetic's blog for more info.
Fall is my favorite season. Hands down. I love this time of year. From the top of my head to the tips of my toes. Every part of me loves autumn.
It's time for cute boots and scarves. For mums and acorns. For pumpkin flavored everything. For amazing pumpkins and gourds of every imaginable size, color, and texture. For crisp air and crackling fires. Fresh apples and my mom's homemade applesauce.
And the color. Oh the color! The leaves on the trees are the absolute best thing about fall. While I don't enjoy raking them, it's worth it to see them in all their glory. My alma mater has a campus full of maple trees. And in autumn, those trees are spectacular. It's one of the things that made me fall in love with the school.
The leaves are slow to change this year. But I am on the hunt, and have seen a few starting to change. I can't wait! All those brilliant reds, oranges, yellows, and golds. I don't think there's much that compares to that display.
Yes, it's been unseasonably warm here. But it's still fall. I wore cute boots and a scarf today, despite the 80 degree temps. It's October 1st, dammit! I know the cooler weather is coming. And I can't wait.
Fall is my favorite season.
