Happy Fall (Ya'All)

So, yesterday, was the first official day of Fall. So, huzzah! Fall, is here.

I am excited about Fall.
Are you ready for Fall?

Well, listen to "The Ballad of Love and Hate" by the Avett Brothers.
Firstly, it's a good song.
Secondly, they have a Fall sounding tone to their music. Trust me.

If you want, you can also listen to Autumn Leaves by Ed Sheeran. That's another good one.

Next, light some candles!!!
Candles are cheery and smell like Fall.
Wear some plaid.
Make pumpkin creations, and definitely go grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte from good ole Starbucks.

Then, make Fall plans.

For instance, my friend is sleeping over and we're going to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown together sometime in October.

I'm also going to a football game with a friend in October.

And of course, I have my church's annual Fall festival with Tractor hayrides, bucket loads of candy, and usually a game of football or basketball to look forward to as well.

I love Fall.
October is coming.
I can smell it.

So, get excited.
Bring out those reds, browns, and oranges to wear.

Things That Remind Me of Fall:

1. Taylor Swift. Yeah, she's changed a bit, but I still like her. Her cd's almost always came out around September/October. Last year's song; "All too Well" also had a Fall-like vibe to me and her mention of Maple Lattes. Before that, I remember her cd "Speak Now" coming out in October and we bought it and listened to it the first time on a car ride to our church's annual Canoe trip. It was freezing that day, and it was nice having a car ride up there listening to her songs and feeling alive and full of Fall. That cd was also my favorite one so, good memories. :) Also, in Thanksgiving they had her tv special shown then too and I remember watching it right after our guests had left. Perfect ending to a perfect day. So, Taylor will always hold fond memories for me.

2. Harry Potter. They always have a great Fall scene in all of the books and movies. And I love Hermione's sweaters and boots, and her overall personality and fashion sense. I love Emma Watson. But overall, Harry Potter reminds me of Fall and I watch the movies/re-read the books around this time.

3. Pumpkin Patches. For obvious reasons. haha. But last year, we had a really memorable time getting our Pumpkin. We went out to eat at this really good Pizzeria, in which they brought out Pizza on a platter and my Dad accidently knocked off the table and onto the floor. Which somehow ended up being hilarious. haha. Then, we walked to a Puppy Place where you can gawk over cute puppies and play with them. After that, we went and got pumpkins. One to carve, and one to use for a favorite pumpkin recipe. And it was just fun. Everyone was in good spirits, and it was lovely.

4. Candy. For the obvious reasons.

5. Cold Weather, for the obvious reasons.

6. Plaid, Moccasins, Jackets, Football Games, and all that Jazz.

I just love Fall.

So many memories to make and remember.


  1. Oh! I adore Fall. :) Happy Fall!

  2. Happy Fall!! yaaaay.

    It's still 80's and 90's here, but the mornings definitely have a different crispness to them now. And pumpkins are abounding, of course! Your post has inspired me, I think I'll turn on some pretty lights in my room tonight, light a yummy candle, and drink something hot! haha.


  3. This is oh so refreshing, I love reading this! I am about to go grab a pumpkin spice latte right now! Cheers to a fellow autumn lover! :)

  4. I love Fall too, well one thing that reminds me of Fall is Brooke Fraser's song called Love is waiting. The song is beautiful and when I sing it I feel like in fall season sitting on the bench in the city :)

    Blessing, and I love Emma too :)

    It's never hard to get me excited about Fall....I fall for fall allllllll the time. ;)
    I like reasons 4 & 5 best- 'for obvious reasons". =)

    I've missed these kinds of posts, it makes me happy to see one again. (Especially devoted to such a well deserving topic!)
