Fall-ing in love: tehee

This weekend of travel left me with plenty of time to think (driving down Hwy 85 is like driving on a treadmill) and so it got me thinking...

About how much I love the fall!  So I thought I'd share my top 20 reasons I love the fall...

  1. The weather is so beautiful: it just invites you to enjoy the "great outdoors"
  2. The changing leaves: I'm a sucker for the bright orange hues
  3. Unpacking all my fall/winter clothes: it feels like Christmas came early! 
  4. The accessories: hats, scarves, gloves and BOOTS! 
  5. PUMPKIN!  Everything... and I do mean everything: Pie, cake, cheesecake, muffin, bread, latte, seeds, soup, cookies, scones, pancakes... you get the idea (no, I'm not obsessed... I'm in love!)
  6. Hot beverages: more specifically, Pumpkin Spice Lattes! (It's a deep an abiding love...)
  7. All the FOOD:  I mean any holiday centered on food and I'm on board
  8. Halloween: Any excuse to dress up and eat candy... um, count me in!
  9. Baking:  Every time the cool breeze comes out I want to buy my weight in butter..."Every time you taste something that's delicious beyond imagining and you say, 'What's in this?' The answer is always going to be 'butter.'"
  10. Sweet Potatoes: plain, sugared, pie... I'm game
  11. The sweaters: Covering up all the "Food" I've eaten (read "Food" as sugar)
  12. The State Fair: It has nothing to do with the food or rides but the feeling.  Maybe it is just me but it feels like fall... nostalgia 
  13. Seeing my Breath
  14. Fire: So I might be a bit of a pyro because I just love fire 
  15. Reading books snuggled up on the couch
  16. Gathering with my family
  17. Eating loads of Chili and Stews with Cornbread covered in honey! 
  18. Bundled and snuggled on cold nights
  19. Watching cheesy romantic comedies while eating Dutch butter cookies
  20. Taking cold late night walks with Chris

Okay so maybe I'm a bit obsessed with food... but I mean have you eaten lately?  I'm just saying it is something pretty awesome to get obsessed over!

What's your favorite thing about the fall?

Live. Love. Loud.
