This Time of Year

"Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address. On the other hand, this not knowing has its charms." - Joe Fox, You've Got Mail

Reasons I love Autumn:

1. Nature looks so breathtaking as it prepares to hibernate for the winter. I love the beautiful colors of the trees before the leaves begin to fall. Something about it makes me want to slow down and enjoy each moment.

2. When the weather cools (not that it was necessary after a cooler-than-average summer) to the point that jeans and a comfy sweatshirt are just perfect for gallivanting around town.

3. Treating myself to hot cider and gooey caramel apples. Yum!

4. Snuggling in my bed on lazy Saturday mornings because it feels so snuggily being buried in my blankets.

5. The scent of a fire burning in the fireplace.

6. Sipping on chai tea lattes (because who drinks those in the summer?).

7. Wearing my cute, new boots!

8. Sunday football parties (Go Bears!)

9. Warm, tasty chili.

10. Gathering with friends and family for the holidays.
