Fall Favorites

I have never met a person who didn’t like Fall. Except maybe my husband, who doesn’t like what comes after fall.

There are so many wonderful things about Fall:

Warm sunshine and crisp temperatures

Hiking trails

Finding acorns and other treasures in the woods

Pumpkin spiced lattes

Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pie, pumpkin-flavored anything

Carving pumpkins

Decorating our house with colorful, weirdly shaped gourds

Sweet potatoes and acorn squash

Soup cooking all day in the crock pot

Caramel apples

Apple crisp

Changing leaves

Leaves (already) raked into a pile

Mums and asters

Layering with long-sleeved shirts and cardigans

Wearing wool socks

What are your Fall favorites?

  • Everything you mentioned…plus the fact that we have no more temps that are super hoy until May!

  • I’m imagining myself sitting on a bench in the woods, surrounded by the beautiful colors of fall leaves, nicely bundled in a warm sweater. I’m not too hot, hot too cold, my hair isn’t frizzed from humidity!, and I have a pumpkin spiced latte in my hand. A big one. 🙂

    Fall’s by far my favorite season, and October my favorite month. Great post, Terri!

    • Great story, Liz! I love it, especially the part where your hair isn’t frizzed from humidity. Forgot to add that to my list of Fall favorites too. Enjoy your October!

  • Hmm Hmm I hate Fall, Terri!! lol
    Here it doesn’t look like your Fall. I guess I’m really a beach girl. I want Summer all year and am already so depressed because of the bad weather coming. Am I overreacting? Probably! Ahah But I know many people who hate it as much as I do. It’s a French Riviera thing.
    Anyway, have fun for me, please!

    • I remember you don’t like Fall! I love summer, but I think I would love summer as much as you do if I lived where you live. I do like to ski and snowshoe, so I like winter. I will look forward to your pictures of summer to get me through!

  • I love your entire list. Here the days are still warm (high 70s to low 80s) but the mornings and evenings are cool and crisp. Not “midwest crisp”–which I REALLY miss, but I’ll take whatever I can get out here. So I posted a bunch of pumpkin-related pictures and someone from the UK said she didn’t get the US obsession with pumpkins. And then I got the Trader Joe’s ad (do you have Trader Joe’s there?) Anyway, nearly every single page had pumpkin items covering everything from lotion to dog biscuits. So just for her, I’m going to post the list this coming Thursday. We apparently ARE pumpkin obsessed

    • Thanks Cindy! I’m sure there are many things people in the UK are obsessed about that we wouldn’t get. There is a wonderful charm about pumpkins, and the flavor in foods gives a warm cozy feeling, especially after a hot summer season. Yes, we have Trader Joe’s here, but I never go there. Looking forward to seeing your list.
