Fall/autumn doesn’t officially start until September 23, but it is starting to feel like it. This photo was taken two years ago during the best time of year for leaves changing in Tennessee and North Carolina. I love all of these colors!
Today I had my first pumpkin spice latte of the season and it was great! So yummy. And, we have pumpkin spice cream cheese, which is also fabulous.
This morning when we left for church, I felt a slight chill in the air and grinned from ear to ear. After the very humid summer, this was such a nice change.
In the fall, football games can be watched all weekend, the fun of the World Series can be enjoyed, we can dress up in Halloween costumes and visit our neighbors, evening walks and bike rides are more pleasant, and we can enjoy s’mores at a bonfire.
It is also the time of year for my son’s birthday, my anniversary with my sweet hubby, our nephew’s wedding, another nephew’s birthday, a niece’s birthday, birthdays of cousins and in-laws, and my parents’ birthdays. It is a time of a lot of celebration and fun.
Also in the fall are long sleeve shirts, jeans, socks, boots, hot drinks, chili, soups, sweatshirts, baking pumpkin bread and cookies, pumpkin pie, butternut squash soup, the smells of apples and cinnamon, fires in the fireplace, crunchy leaves, the amazing reds, yellows, and oranges on the trees, hayrides, and extra-long cuddles.
I love the summer out in California since it isn’t humid (at least not to me), and I love the fall in Tennessee, North Carolina, and South Carolina. To me it is the prettiest at this time of year.
I wonder when the leaves will start changing this year? I can’t wait to see them. Happy Fall!
