Fall brings lots of excited things folks. It is one of my favorite times of year. Living in the south, I wait and wait with great anticipation for fall so we can see something other than heat and humidity. Here is a short list of things I look forward to that fall brings.
Cooler weather. Well into October, we will have temps in the upper 80’s. But to us, this is “cooler weather.” I have worn shorts and a t-shirt on Thanksgiving day before. I only speak the truth, and this one makes me sad. Even though it is still quite warm, the humidity has subsided a bit and made running a little more bearable!
Pumpkin everything. I love pumpkins. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins (check out my recipe) pumpkin scented candles, and pumpkins on front porches. My yankee candle has been burning in the kitchen and it makes me happy.
Races. While a lot of the country is winding down their race season, we are gearing up for ours! We don’t generally have many races other than 5k’s from May-September. It’s just too dang hot. Most of my races fall between October and February, unless it’s a destination race.
Boots and sweaters. I love tall boots! They are so fun and sassy and I can’t wait to pull mine out! Granted, I don’t own a ton of sweaters, but they will hopefully be able to come out sometime in November. Sad times I know.
Football. Geaux LSU Tigers and WHO DAT Saints. I spend all day Saturday and Sunday watching football if at all possible. ‘Nuff said.
QOTD: What is your favorite thing that fall brings?
