I love fall! I’d be willing to bet that at least 50% of the people with a favorite season would say it’s fall. I know most of my family and friends prefer autumn over the other seasons.
I enjoy when the temperature drops and the days are cool, and the nights are even cooler. I feel like I’ve never had better sleep than a cool fall night, covered with a thick comforter, with the window open a crack, and the fan running. That is my ideal sleeping weather.
The colors of fall make me swoon. Driving through the country in the fall, it’s hard for me to imagine that there are people who believe God doesn’t exist. There is no man that can create such a beautiful scene! The vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows, brighten my mood every time I look outside.
One of my favorite things about autumn is the smell. The air smells so crisp! Most evenings, the smell of a bonfire floats on a cool breeze as the dry leaves float to the ground. The smell of fall takes me back to my childhood, raking leaves into a giant pile and then jumping in, only to do it all over again, giggling the whole time! These are the memories I try to make for my kids too…the leaves, the pumpkins, apple picking, and corn mazes!
Every fall we have a party at DH’s parents’ house. My sister in law and I think we’re hilarious, so we dubbed it the Farty. Fall+party=Farty! We get together with family and long time friends and spend the evening eating, drinking, and having tons of fun catching up. We always have a bonfire, with lots of smores and hobo pie fixins. This to me is what life’s all about. A cool fall evening, family, friends, and food. It doesn’t get any better!
How do you celebrate in the fall?
