Fall favorites

"Anyone who thinks fallen leaves are dead has never watched them dancing on a windy day." -Shira Tamir 

Some of my favorite fall things include:

  • being able to wear flannel without being asked why (even though it still is pretty warm here)
  • apples, apple cider, apple butter, apple crisp (I like apples more than pumpkin. so sue me.)
  • boots!
  • evening walks and drives
  • finding the crunchiest leaves to step on, always.
  • SWEATERS. I'm actually trying to cut down on my things a bit, but I think more sweaters is an okay thing.
  • knitting. I know you can do this year 'round, but it just seems more fun in the fall. ;)
  • reading. fall reading should definitely be a thing. 
  • hoodie weather 
  • holidays getting closer!! I am one of "those people" who loves Christmas. a lot.
  • yummy special holiday food
  • hot beverages: as far as tea, coffee, hot cocoa, and hot apple cider go, I'll drink 'em alllll
  • seasonal baking 
  • THE COLORS. and the sunsets that make them look even more golden and beautiful!
  • the mountains in fall. Not that I go much, but when I do...breathtaking.
  • jumping in leaf piles. I'm still a little kid at heart. :)
  • soup season. I love soup. I would eat soup all the time. but unless it's cold out, it's usually not being made in our house. :(
  • I'm not a huge fan of sports, but if football season means it's fall, I'll accept it. Plus, there's the super bowl food to look forward to. ;)
  • bonfires. although I'm not a fan of how your front gets roasted while the back of you is freezing, and then your clothes and hair smell like smoke. :/ someone needs to come up with a way to solve this.
  • Candles. again, these are kind of an all year thing but for some reason they just feel like a fall thing to me, y'know?
  • cuddling with a pet :) you can obviously do this anytime but if it's cold out it helps both of you stay warmer. win-win. ;)

this is my cat Rocky. if this doesn't show you his personality, I don't know what would. haha

What are some of your fall favorites?


  1. Oh what a beautiful list. With spring happening here and summer just around the corner, I am already longing for autumn, and I'm jealous of your boots and cider and crackly leaves. Also, I love the smell of woodsmoke in my hair!

    1. Ah well don't worry, I'm jealous of your summer! ;) Summer is one of my favorites but I try my best to enjoy all the seasons otherwise I just end up miserable. :p
      I love the smell of smoke, I just don't like how it lingers until I shower and wash my clothes. :) Thanks for the comment!

  2. Lovely list! Reading with candles in fall is my go to relax method. Your cat is adorable, by the way <3


    1. Right? It's just the best! Plus, you don't have to worry about lighting being too harsh if it's close to when you're going to bed! Thank you, I happen to think he is too. ;) haha
