Fall-ing For Autumn

Autumn is bittersweet for me.  It replaces summer, my very favorite, and leads into winter, my least favorite.  So sometimes I just have to force myself to overlook those things and love fall for what it is.  And that would be a season full of potential.  It is what you make out of it, afterall!

So instead of mourning over the end of summer and an upcoming winter, I try to keep in mind the beauty of fall.

In no particular order, some of my favorite things about the Fall Season:

1 – Sharing Pumpkin Spice Lattes with my boyfriend

2 – The scents of Autumn perfected in a candle

3 – Cooler weather means even more cuddling


4 – Corn mazes and haunted houses

5 – Watching the leaves evolve from green to the brilliant colors of Autumn

6 – Carving pumpkins into works of art

7 – Leaving doors and windows open to the Fall Breeze

9 – Hayrides

10 – Bonfires & S’mores (Bonus: This carries over from summer, but you actually need the warmth now!)

11 – Football Games.. no, scratch that… Half-time . Once a participator, now a nostalgic spectator.

12- Fall Festivals Everywhere


13 – Having an excuse to be childlike and dress up in costume

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:

a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,

a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,

a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,

a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,

a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,

a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

    I love all of your list – but relate most to the football one – our family has started attending Friday night games and I just get so excited to see the band coming out onto the field. I was in color guard – what about you?
