the autumn twelve


The first of October marked the beginning of what I think are the best three months of the year.

October, November, and December.
{Hey, save the best for last, right?}

While technically they aren't one actual season {more like mostly fall and a little winter}, I like to think of them as one.  So for lack of a better term, we're going to just call it "fall/autumn" but really I mean up through to the first of January.

Here's what I'm most excited for....
  1. The leaves turning every shade of red, orange, and yellow imaginable.
  2. Pumpkin flavored everything.
  3. Football season!
  4. The cool, crisp fall air on a sunny day - perfect for scarves and jackets without being too cold or gloomy.
  5. Halloween!  'Nuff said.
  6. Fall decor ideas like this, this, and this.
  7. Corn mazes, pumpkin patches, apple bobbing, pumpkin carving, and all the other fall festival activities.
  8. Fall fashion - sweaters and boots and scarves and jackets and hats and the list goes on and on...
  9. The return of television shows!
  10. Thanksgiving.  Again, 'nuff said.
  11. Snuggling up in a comfy sweater with a hot cup of coffee and a book.
  12. Christmas season right around the corner {it's the most wonderful time of the year!}.  Also, the fact that these carols and other holiday songs will soon be socially acceptable.
The list really could go on and on, but twelve seemed like a good number and who are we kidding?  I'll probably just end up doing another post with more reasons eventually...
