Prepare For the Wonderment of Fall

By: Darci Maxwell

 

Fall is right around the corner and I couldn’t be more excited! There are so many wonderful

things about autumn that make it many people’s favorite time of the year. So along with thinking

about what your storage needs are and getting cleaned up for fall here are 15 things that I love

that I hope will help you too get excited for the changing seasons.

Pumpkin Everything

I am a personal fan of the pumpkin everything mindset. I admit that I sometimes make pumpkin

bread in March, so I’m glad it’s finally becoming normal again. This year I’m going to make any

excuse to bake pumpkin bread, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, roasted pumpkin seeds, and

more!

 

The Weather Cools Down

It seems like this summer has been the hottest one in years. There were heat waves across the

country, causing youtubers to see if they could bake cookies on the dashboard of their car. It will

be wonderful to have liveable temperatures again.

 

Fall Fashion

I don’t know about you, but I’m excited to wear sweaters and boots once again. I love wrapping

up in a warm sweater on cool fall nights and looking quite fashionable accessorising with a cute

scarf.

 

Bugs Disappear

Another great thing about fall is that the bugs disappear for the rest of the year. As much as I

love summer, I do not love the spiders, mosquitoes, flies, etc. I can’t wait for them to go away.

 

School Starts Once Again

While I don’t have kids of my own, I sympathize with parents who can finally send their kids

back to school. By the end of the summer, they’re bored, antsy, and driving their parents insane.

While school brings its own challenges, the change is very nice. If you’d like some tips to help

your family get ready for the school year, check out this blog.

Changing Colors

Towards the end of the summer, the world starts to look a little brown and dead. Autumn

combats the dreariness by releasing the most beautiful colors: vibrant yellows, rustic reds, and

deep oranges. It’s almost as if the world decided to throw one epic going away party for

summer.

 

You Can Taste Autumn

This sounds a little strange but think about it. The air no longer feels muggy and heavy, and you

can almost taste it. It’s cool, crisp, and refreshing.

 

Crunchy Leaves

I am the type of person who will go out of my way just to step on a crunchy leaf. I love the way

they sound, feel, and even smell. (While I love the crunch, nothing is more disappointing than

walking to a leaf, stepping on it and hearing silence. I always feel betrayed.)

 

Stay In Movies

Ok, so this one isn’t specific to fall, but the cool weather suddenly makes it socially acceptable

to stay in, snuggle, and watch Netflix. It’s the perfect time to grab your significant other and

binge watch your favorite shows.

Harvest Season

It’s very easy to eat healthy during the fall as the price of vegetables and fruits drop due to the

harvest. So go to the store and stock up on your favorite produce. If you’re still harvesting a

garden of your own, check out this blog for tips and tricks to help you transition your garden

from summer to fall.

 

Halloween

Halloween is my favorite holiday. It’s the one time of the year that you get to literally wear

whatever you want, and it’s totally fine. You can be a princess, a superhero, an ear of corn,

whatever! The parties are also a ton of fun.

 

Thanksgiving

I also love Thanksgiving. If I could, I would have a Thanksgiving feast every day of the year

(unfortunately, my figure would not thank me). It’s also great to get together with friends and

family and celebrate everything that you have to be thankful for.

 

Football Season

Football season is finally here! It’s always fun to scream your heart out at a game watching your

favorite annihilate their opponents.

 

Drinking Hot Chocolate

I am a personal fan of hot chocolate, ciders, teas and other tasty drinks. Unfortunately, they’re

too hot to drink during most of the year, but during the fall, they’re a perfect way to relax after a

long day at work.
