Is it just me, or does everything about Fall just seem to scream comfort? As much as I dislike the cold weather, the following is a list of 10 things that I look forward to each Fall season.
1. Changing Leaves
There is something so serene about the leaves when they begin to change colors. I adore being outdoors, and this time of year provides a beautiful landscape to truly appreciate. The simple things in life make me the happiest!
2. Over Sized Sweaters and Hoodies
When it starts getting cool, I begin dressing in layers. The best part about this is being able to slip on a soft, comfy, over sized sweater or hoodie. It provides an abundance of warmth, and allows you to go about town without feeling self conscious about your waist line.
3. Thanksgiving Dinner
The ONLY day of the year in which I actually have a variety of dishes to choose from that I enjoy. There’s nothing better than a delicious meal accompanied by your favorite people in the world!
4. Extra Hour of Sleep
If you’re anything like me then you NEVER get enough sleep! I always look forward to this fantastic time of year.
5. Comfort Food/Beverages
When I think of comfort food, Pot Roast, Beef Stew, Chili, and Vegetable Soup pop into my mind. These dishes warm your belly, are extremely nutritious, and just make you feel good. Hot beverages provide the same desired feelings.
6. Thankful Heart
There is just something about the fall season that brings about a grateful heart. You are more apt to acknowledge and appreciate all of the blessings that you have in your life.
7. Curling Up with Hubby
I don’t care how we end up spending that time, be it watching a movie, or sharing our day, these moments are the best, and will always remain treasured memories.
8. Fuzzy Socks
When the weather starts changing, my pigs feel like little ice cubes. I look forward to slipping on my fuzzy socks each and every day! Not only do they keep me warm, but they are so soft and cozy.
9. Hot Bubble Baths
I’m that friend that STAYS cold! When I get frozen to the bone, the only relief that I have found is a nice hot bubble bath. Not only do I get clean and smell good, but the relaxing alone time does wonders for my creativity and mental well being.
Although it’s been years since I’ve had the opportunity to go camping, I have very fond memories of it growing up. Hikes, bike rides, sun sets, exploring nature, campfires, burnt marshmallows… Great times!
