I feel like as little kids our favorite season was summer — no hesitations — because after all, what is more torturous to a 7 year old than school? Summer = no school = a little kid’s dream. I can’t deny that summer will always be a magical season in that sense; it’s all about relaxation and having fun. What’s not to love?
Over the years my answer to “what’s your favorite season?” has changed, and I am very enthusiastic about my love for the fall. It’s even starting to smell like fall! (Quick shoutout to Bath and Body Works for making the most perfect scents to capture this time of year). Just the thought of sweaters, scarves, crunchy and colorful leaves, cozy nights in, and the holidays makes me so happy! Oh and I can’t forget Starbucks peppermint mochas (I know peppermint is more winter than fall, but hey it’s great! And I know pumpkin spice is the expected answer).
It’s been getting a bit more crisp, which is such a relief after a swelling first week of classes, and I’m already pulling out some of my fall favorites! Bring on the dark nails and berry lips!
I’ve also been dying to go apple picking for months and I believe I’ll be going sometime in October (cross your fingers). I think the process of apple picking, and the entire environment of it, is so lovely. The orchards are beautiful and you can have some nice apple cider when you’re done (or an apple cider doughnut!).
I wish I could find the words to show how excited I am, but I really can’t. Just imagine giddiness, lots of jumping up and down, and endless energy for autumn adventures!
