Hello, Autumn!

Here in the northern hemisphere, we just celebrated the first day of autumn, or fall, or whatever you like to call it. It’s my favorite season of the year. I’m not a big fan of cold weather, so I guess it’s more accurate to say I’m a fan of early autumn–when there’s still warm days, the nights aren’t freezing cold, and there’s no frost or snow on the ground yet. Just crunchy leaves and bright colors. And of course, Halloween! My favorite holiday! I live in the northern part of the U.S., where we have very pronounced seasons, and fall is the most vivid. It’s a nice little segue into suffering endless gray months of ice and snow.

And yes, before you ask, I’ve already had a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks.

I love candles, too. Scented candles! I have tons of them. My favorite are the fall scents–pumpkin, apple, cinnamon, vanilla, spices–and it’s finally the time of year I can use them (without seeming weird, anyway).

To celebrate the first day of fall, I lit up my mantle with them:

Do you love fall, or do you have another favorite season? Do you even have fall in your part of the world? I think that’s one of the only reasons I could never live somewhere tropical…I love fall too much!

  1. Autumn is definitely my favorite season too, followed closely by spring. I hate the extreme heat of summer and the extreme cold of winter.

    1. Where I live the summers don’t get extremely hot, but man do the winters suck! That’s why I like to cling to the warm weather for as long as I can.
