Why Fall Is My (Second) Favorite F-Word: 25 Reasons to Love the Season by Ann Marie Patitucci
Fall has always been my favorite time of year. The fall season has so much to offer: the most beautiful colors, crisp air, comfy clothes, Halloween, comfort food and so much more. My friends and family all know of my love for the season, which I start celebrating every September 1st! I grew up in upstate New York and have wonderful childhood memories of family trips to the Adirondacks and Vermont to picnic, eat maple candy and see the fall foliage.
My husband and I got married in October, my favorite month of the year. Some of my favorite memories and traditions with our boys take place during this season as well. If fall is not yet your favorite (or second favorite) “F-word,” consider the following and maybe you’ll just change your mind:
- Apple picking.
- Pumpkin patches.
- Hay rides and corn mazes.
- The fashion: flannels, boots, leggings, sweaters – all the comfy, cozy fall gear!
- No more sweating!
- Colorful leaves.
- Jumping in the leaves!
- Blankets and throws.
- The crisp scent in the air.
- Bonfires and s’mores.
- Hot apple cider, apple cider cocktails, pumpkin spice, hot cocoa, hot toddy – pick your poison!
- Pumpkin carving.
- Halloween candy.
- Costumes! (Even adults can join in on the fun – I always do!)
- Leaf-peeping and weekend getaways.
- Pie and cider donuts.
- Relaxing by the fire with a good book.
- Gaining an extra hour of sleep in October!
- Fall festivities.
- Fall décor.
- Comfort food.
- Turning off the A/C and opening the windows.
- Nature walks and the sound of crunchy leaves.
- A focus on gratitude.
- New beginnings.
“The windows are open, admitting the September breeze: a month that smells like notepaper and pencil shavings, autumn leaves and car oil. A month that smells like progress, like moving on.” – Lauren Oliver
“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” – L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
