It’s Friiiiiiiday! My favorite blog day of the week because I get to participate in 5 Fandom Friday. This week’s prompt is 5 Favorite Things About Autumn. To be honest, I love everything about Fall. Sadly in Florida, Fall is more of a concept than a true season, but I take what I can get. Here’s my top 5 favorites:
I love all things pumpkin. Pumpkin pie, PSL, pumpkin donuts, and just plain old pumpkins. I even made a pumpkin coconut curry for dinner the other night because I could feel Florida desperately trying to cool off and feel a bit like Fall.
With the Fall comes Halloween. Halloween is my favorite holiday. I love magic and witches and all things spooky (fun spooky, not scary movie spooky), so naturally I have a serious love of Halloween. Being able to dress up and be someone totally different for a night while having an amazing time and getting candy is simply the best. I love sharing it with my son now, too.
Like I said, Florida doesn’t really get a true Fall like basically all other places do, but it tries. When the air gets crispy, it’s like I can feel a charge of energy in my body full of excitement. I’ve always been like this when it comes to Fall weather. Sometimes we’ll even see a random tree with orange leaves that makes feeling the crisp air even better.
Sweaters and boots and vests and finally wearing jeans without sweating to death are all major perks of Fall. I love the look of Fall clothing. It’s just so cozy and fun and I’ll get to wear my awesome new cat scarf I just bought.
Fall show premiers
So many of my favorite TV shows are back and new ones begin! I wait all summer long for my favorite Fall shows to begin and now they’re here…and seriously can’t wait for the new Muppets show 🙂
An honorable mention also goes to college football – I spent 4 years a big football school, so as soon as September hits, Saturdays are sacred days for tailgating and watching football.
What are some of your favorite things about Autumn?
