I love fall. Don’t get me wrong, summer and spring are awesome too (not a huge fan of winter!). But there is something about fall that makes me feel all cozy. I grew up on the east coast of Canada where the leaves change to the most amazing colors and there are so many trees. Walks during the fall usually involved a soundtrack of crunching leaves beneath your feet. I also used to love raking the leaves into piles and jumping in them. I love Thanksgiving, which is when I feel like fall really begins. I’m a big fan of turkey and have become a huge fan of pumpkin pie in recent years. I also love love love Halloween. So much so that J proposed before we went to a Halloween party back in 2007. I love getting to bring out my sweaters again, turn on the fireplace, and get cozy on the couch.
The other day I was driving and just had a sensation that fall was around the corner. It made me think of someday taking my kids for walks through the leaves, bundling them up a bit and going to the park to play, taking them trick or treating, baking pumpkin treats, etc. I really look forward to those days, whenever they may be.
