I've made it no secret that Fall is my favorite season. I love it! I love everything about it. And while Memphis Fall isn't nearly as awesome as more northern cities, I make the most of it.
Yesterday & today, particularly, are having some awesome, seasonally cool weather (temps in the 70s). So in honor of that - I'd like to present a list of the things I love most about Fall.
(And yes - a lot of these are related to food. BACK OFF.)
-rich, Fall colors
-"back to school" clothes
-pumpkin-flavored beer (I also had a chocolate stout this past weekend that was delicious & Fall-like)
-caramel apples (had one on Saturday - mmm)
-Fall vegetables (Finally! I think I'll die if I have to eat any more zucchini or squash)
-dinners on our deck
-JEANS - all weekend, every weekend
-boots (and I definitely bought the ones I wanted in my last post - the ones Sarah already has)
-warm, heavier dinners - like soup/stew, chili, pot pie, etc.
-snuggling with a blanket
-sweaters - especially when the weather is cool enough for a sweater, warm enough for no coat
-wearing my bathrobe & slippers
-college football on my terms - that is, the few times when I'm actually excited about drinking some beer, laying around, and watching it; that is, not as the thing that keeps someone uninterested in doing anything else on the weekends; and not as the thing that keeps the awful tv on constantly
-carving pumpkins (particularly with a pumpkin ale in hand)
-red wine as seasonally acceptable (I drink it year-round - but it feels more appropo with cooler weather)
-the beautiful, big trees in my neighborhood changing color
Ah - I'm excited just reading that list! Did I forget anything? What do you guys like most about Fall?
