Why I Am Ready For Fall

Why I Am Ready For Fall

Right now we are breaching the end of summer where you can no longer buy bathing suits, and back-to-school sales are in full force. But despite that it is 40 degrees outside and nothing makes me want fall more then beads of sweat and humidity-induced coma.

So on that note here are some things to get you ready for fall. Light your pumpkin scented candles and make yourself a hot cocoa and lets begin!


Drinking hot drinks without sweating.

hotdrink

Scarves – socially acceptable way to wear a blanket in public.

scarf

Fall candles. Apple pie, toasted marshmallow, sweater weather, leaves. These names bring real excitement to my soul about the upcoming season.

Cool weather. When it isn’t too cold, but you get to wear all of your favourite sweaters.

Changing leaves. I’m Canadian, so every year bringing about a few weeks of beautiful coloured leaves.

autumn

Sweaters. Already mentioned, but deserves its own point. My favourite clothing option, like sleeping bags with arms, or snuggies with backs.

sweater

Fall activities. Apple picking and pumpkin picking are some of the best fall things to do before it is too cold. **Also wine festivals

wine

Halloween. Yes, I am an adult. Yes, I will dress up and strut my stuff in some sub-par costume this Halloween.

Brisk air on walks (drives)…. who walks?

…and last but not least, after Fall comes CHRISTMAS!
