There is something about fall that I just love. Maybe it’s because I live in the beautiful state of Michigan and this may be the most gorgeous season in this state.  I’m in the minority most of the time with this feeling, but I feel as though fall is a time to start anew. Maybe it’s because I’ve always associated it with a new semester after a long, hot summer and a time to get back on track.

Here are a few of my favorite fall things:

  • Colorful, vibrant leaves (the warm hues are so beautiful)
  • Apple cider (with or without rum 😉 and definitely with cinnamon added in )
  • Hay rides
  • Haunted houses
  • Spices (ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove)
  • Halloween!
  • Pumpkin bread
  • Spiced lattes
  • Fall fashion (cozy sweaters, boots, scarves & hats)
  • The smell of fall (earthy smell)
  • Huge pumpkins
  • Fireplaces
  • Crunchy leaves
  • Fresh apples
  • Harvest time
  • Candles (especially ginger & sugar cookie ones)
  • Season of transition (fresh start)
  • Orchards
  • Warm, feel good meals
  • Hot tea (chai and milk is a favorite)
  • Less sweat (cooler weather is so much more better to run in)
  • Football (I love a good game)
  • Roasted pumpkin seeds
  • Costumes 
  • Changing hairstyles
  • Fall inspired decorations
  • Hot chocolate
  • Less skin
  • Extra blankets
  • Open windows in the house
  • Soups & Stew
  • Wine tasting & hard cider
