Finally Fall

This is the first post I've written in quite a while that wasn't in conjunction with Sunday Hatch. Whoops. Well, at least signing up for that assignment has proven to do exactly what I thought it would: make me write at least one post a week.

But this post is special because it's in honor of Fall: my favorite Season of the year. I like the other three in their own right, but usually I'm tired of them after a few weeks. In the case of Spring here in Texas... well, a few weeks is all we get! We go from cold and frosty to hot and humid, sometimes overnight. My hair, my skin, everything ends up a wreck. It's not pretty.

Fall is like the universal season I think everyone can get on board with. It's usually a relief after a hot summer, but it's not too cold you can't enjoy being outside. It brings the best fashion options - who doesn't love getting bundled up in baggy sweaters, scarves, leggings and boots!? You get to enjoy drinks, dishes, and desserts that other times of the year just aren't appropriate. Pumpkin bread? Um, yes please! Back to school, whether you're going back or not, is so sentimental. I think we all have fond memories of new notebooks, sharpened pencils, first day outfits, and another year of knowledge. But best of all are the fall colors. Not that we get much of them in Texas.

The past few days have been a bit of a preview. We're not there yet, not by a long shot, but a dry high 80's is enough here in Texas to get us excited. I'm not rushing to unpack my heavy sweaters, in fact, one of those days was perfect laying out weather - so I did, in my back yard. But I'm getting ready mentally. Ironically, I'm writing this post on the hottest day this week.

To aid in this sentimental preparation, I put together a little collage of some of the things I love best about this coming time of year. So feast your eyes. Let's get ready for the most wonderful time of year (ignore that silly Christmas song!).

It's almost here. I can feel it.
