I love fall.

Fall is arguably my favorite season (winter is a close second solely because of Christmas). I love the cool, crisp air (although it's currently a little TOO cool and crisp for my liking), the beginning of the holiday season, frequent travels home to Seattle to visit the city, family and friends I love...and so much more.

This last weekend my boyfriend and I trekked out east to go apple-picking (in the pouring down rain) and then, on a whim, made our way up to Gettysburg. Besides the fact that we were soaked (and had luckily made a wise investment in rain boots the day before), we were awe-struck at the gorgeous fall colors. The one thing I missed while living in the Southwest was actual seasons, and am warmly welcoming back fall leaves, snow, scarves, sweaters and down.

Some of my favorite things about fall:
  • Apple anything.
  • Thanksgiving (food, family, and friends).
  • College football.
  • Christmas cups at Starbucks.
  • Christmas songs everywhere (radio, stores...everywhere)
  • Hot beverages (cocoa, cider, name it)
Annndddd....there are snow flurries outside right now!! It's October!! This is crazy.
What are your favorite things about fall? And are you as much of a sap for Christmas as I am?

Me too. The leaves and the wind are perfect in the fall.
