I’ve said it before, but I truly do not have a single favorite season. That said, there is definitely something special about fall. I decided to put together a little list of the reasons why I love fall so much!
For now I am not yet sick of celebrating my birthday. I turn 25 (!!) on Halloween, and I just love throwing Halloween parties every year. I really enjoy organizing parties and get-togethers, so this is the perfect excuse to do just that. It’s especially great because over the last years, all my friends have put a lot of effort into their costumes, and it’s always fun to see what they come up with next! Not to mention I get the chance to put my relatively-okay-baking-skills to good use and make some spooky snacks for the evening.
The weather is a lot more bearable
Where I live, summers are hot and humid and there’s relatively a lot of rain fall. I love hanging around the pool in the summer, but that’s the most you can do without sweating to death. Fall here is just way better! The weather gets nice and cool, it doesn’t rain that often, and you can actually go outside and move. I enjoy visiting the local parks to hike. Additionally, the temperatures remain relatively high here during September, so even though the humidity plummets down, it’s still wonderful to go outside and enjoy the sun!
Halloween is my all-time favorite holiday. Is it because it’s my birthday? Maybe… But there’s definitely more to it than that! I love the overall spookiness of it all. I love the Halloween decorations that pop up in store. I love driving around the neighborhood and see how everyone decorates their yards with ghosts and skeletons and such. Every year I watch The Nightmare Before Christmas in honor of Halloween (and again in honor for Christmas. It’s a bi-seasonal movie, okay). I’m not a big fan of horror, but I love the Halloween movies that come on TV every year. This year I’m also fully planning on going to Fields of Fear; which is a haunted Halloween trail at one of our local farms. It has bonfires, snacks, hayrides, a haunted corn maze, and classic horror movies!
I’ll admit, I don’t like the taste of pumpkin at all… Pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie, pumpkin lattes… no thanks! They even have pumpkin pasta sauce now, which to me is super weird. But anyway, I do love how they look on the steps to our front door. You know it’s fall when there are pumpkins being sold everywhere. Last year I got a few pumpkins from a local church, which was kind of awkward (I think they could smell on me that I’ve never been to church before HA), but they were super cheap and great for carving!
I like wearing sundresses and short shorts and flip flops, but to be honest I like layering up in cute fall clothes more. Last year I invested a lot in my wardrobe, and all my new clothes were super cute fall and winter clothes! Maybe one day I’ll make a blog post with my favorite outfits..
Anyway, nothing beats cozying up in an oversized sweater and going for a nice autumnal walk!
Time to read!
This is a book blog, obviously I’m always reading. But to be honest I read a lot more in the fall than in the summer. Summers are for lazing during the day and going out at night. Fall is for cozying up in ten thousand blankets with a good book. I mostly like sunny weather, but when I’m all cozied up inside I love listening to the rain. I also like to read high fantasy more during the fall. Let’s go on the epic quest!
