Yay! There is a chill in the air, fall is here and winter is arriving on the next train. This is my favorite time of year; The reasons why are almost endless. In eight short weeks you can cram in Halloween (costumes and candy, two awesome things in one night!), pumpkin carving, scarecrows, hot apple cider, pumpkin pie, crisp chilly air, colorful trees, pumpkin pie, corn mazes, Thanksgiving, pumpkin pie, decorating for Christmas, and eating one last pumpkin pie after the decorations are up. But the Number One Reason why fall is scrumptious is: cozy accessories. Being that I’ve spent the majority of my life in sizzling Arizona, I’ve not really gotten the opportunity to use mittens, hats, arm-warmers, fingerless gloves, jackets, and scarves. Maya has been wearing mittens on her hands all summer, but it’s less “cute quirk” and more “foolishness” when an adult does it, so I curbed that notion. But now! Now it is my turn. I’m going to wrap myself in so much fluffy apparel that I look like the Michelin tire man. What about you? Do you like this time of year? What is your favorite (or least favorite) thing about fall?
