My Top 10 Fall Favorites
Fall is my favorite season. I'm not shy about it either - there is just something about it . . .the minute those back-to-school supplies hit the shelves, I start to get ready.
The hard part, is waiting until the last week of September, when Fall officially arrives. But good things come to those who wait, and Fall is full of very good things.
Here are my Top 10 Favorite Fall Things:
Changing Leaves - The trees look so pretty as they turn to oranges, yellows and reds.
Halloween - There's something about dressing up and pretending that is just so fun.
Scarves - The perfect time is when you can wear a t-shirt, jacket and scarf, before it gets too cold.
Mums - I love my tulips in the spring and peonies and hydrangea in the summer, but when the Farmer's Market is stocked with pot after pot of colorful fall mums, it just looks like a Fall quilt.
Open Windows - It seems simple, but it's refreshing to turn the AC off and get a breath of fresh, crisp Fall air.
Back-to-School - Even though it's not officially Fall, when the kids go back to school, it signals the beginning of the season.
Apple Cider - I can remember getting apple cider as a little girl from Sunny Slope in NJ with my grandparents. It's so crisp, delicious hot (and spiked) or cold.
Boots - I love my flip-flops, but seriously the day I pull on that first pair of boots - heaven on a stick.
Pumpkins - There is something about this vegetable that I adore - green ones, orange ones, white ones . . .I just love them in all their shapes and sizes.
and the number 1 Fall thing I love?
