Ten days into the new school/work year, and I am still feeling genuinely excited and positive, even if summer’s sunny weather is quickly escaping me. My effort to “look on the bright side” of autumn is working, and I am actually eager for what fall is bringing my way. In honor of fall, and my determination to embrace it, I’ve made another top 10 list!
My Top Ten Reasons to LOVE Fall:
1. Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Lattes
I’ll take mine with soy and ice please.
I CANNOT wait when all the leaves in Central Park turn to Orange, Yellow, and Red!
I’m trying really hard to love tea more and I already like tea a lot, but coffee is obviously my first love. I think Autumn will be a great time for me and tea to build a stronger relationship.
4. Evening and early morning walks in the park
The weather here is already perfect. 75 degrees has been our average, and even though it’s not great weather for the beach, it’s still great weather to be outside.
I am lucky enough that I get to wear workout clothes to work virtually everyday, but the summer is just too hot for my yoga pants in sweatpants. Enter: FALL, and it’s time to breakout my comfy baggy sweats!
7. Soup and Chili
Fall time is when it’s okay to nix the salads and start eating comfort food again. I cannot wait for our first big pot of chili. After all, it’s one of the only things I make well!
8. New TV Season Begins!
Who’s excited for the new seasons of Dexter, Dancing With The Stars, Modern Family, Glee, and The Office!?!?!?!
9. Lots and lots of holidays
Halloween, Husband’s Birthday, MY BIRTHDAY, Thanksgiving, AND Black Friday, I love having a reason to celebrate and dress in costumes! Not to mention pumpkin carving, trick-or-treating, presents, shopping, lots of food, parties, and time off work.
Fall is definitely the most popular shopping time of the year. Besides all the holiday shopping, there’s the back-to-school shopping, and the fact that all the new Fall and Winter lines come out.
I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful season!*
*To be honest, I had a really hard time making my top 10! As much as I am trying to be excited, I still miss my summer!
