Happy First Official Day of Fall!
First, let’s get through lunch. Leftovers!
Pork poblano dish + green beans, and a side of a corn/lima bean/tomato/pepper salad.
Good, but I’m ready for something new.
Let’s talk fall.
Fall is, by far, my favorite season.
I have always loved it – the changing colors in the leaves, the crisp mornings, the shift to all things comforting.
Soups, hot cocoa, wearing jeans + long sleeve tshirt + flip flops, big sweaters, cinnamon in everything, squash, carving pumpkins…all of those things just make me happy.
Plus, Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. I love seeing all my family and just spending all day with them, cooking together, eating together, napping, watching football…just enjoying the time we can spend together.
While I am really missing the early sunrises and lighter evenings, I am ready for fall to come in full swing.
A few trees are starting to change already.
I think that is one reason I can never move away from Virginia, unless I go farther north. I cannot live without the colors in the fall. The bright yellows, oranges, and reds that take over the trees here are just breathtaking.
I’m hoping Nick and I are able to have a few hiking trips this fall and be able to see the colors from hidden overlooks, mountain tops, and valleys – you just can’t beat those views.
What are you favorite things about the season? If fall isn’t your favorite, what is?
