Fall is hands down my absolute favorite time of the year. There is just something about this time of year that sings to my soul... maybe it's because I'm partially an introvert ( this article nails some of my feelings), or maybe I just genuinely love fall. Some people count down the days until summer comes, but I count down the days until fall arrives instead. I can't pinpoint just one exact reason why I love fall but I can tell you several reasons why fall my favorite season.
1. Hot beverages
If you've been around me at all you know that I love my coffee.I drink hot coffee all year round, but somehow fall just makes it extra perfect. I am a self pronounced coffee snob and I'm OK with it. We have a simple espresso machine that was a gift from my hubby and boy is it a game changer. I also love a good herbal tea in the afternoon. I recently discovered a Ginger and Turmeric Tea at Trader Joe's that is super yummy.
2. Sweater weather.
I love my layers and fall is the perfect combo of not too hot and not too cold to throw on a perfect chunky cardi. I also adore hoodies that have thumb holes... I don't know why, but I love them.
Going along with sweater weather, it is also the perfect weather to have bonfires. There is nothing better than snuggling up to a bonfire in your sweatshirt. I adore the smell of bonfire smoke... it instantly transports me to the serenity of the woods with a quiet stream. It refreshes my soul.
4 The colors.
There is something so magical about the leaves changing color. I remember driving through Eugene, OR a couple years back in early October and it was breathtaking. The mixture of green, yellow, orange and red was absolutely stunning.
Boots are a staple in my closet and I love them all... booties, combat, heeled, knee length, I'll take them all. Fall is just the right weather to showcase my boots and add to my collection.
There is so much more I could say about fall that I love... but how about you, what are the things that you love about fall?
