It is no surprise: I love fall. Especially now. I get to wear leggings and sweaters and tunics and boots. Soon enough. Right now it's in the 80s during the day and chilly overnight, so it's perfect sleeping weather.
I love fall for the smell of cold, dry air. The crispness of the leaves. How the world is cast in warm, glowy night every day. I don't like the days growing shorter, and I'm not sure I'm ready for winter, but fall? Fall is my favorite.
This year I'm much more appreciative of fall, with my little blast furnace incubating away. The cooler temperatures often feel good when I feel like I'm going to overheat, and I love my comfy, cozy leggings.
Also, I love the new fall-themed cups at Starbucks. I know, not so great for the environment, but it's not something I do daily. I had my one (okay, maybe one of two) annual Pumpkin Spice Latte just a few short days ago and it was heaven in a cup. Spicy and sweet and just what I needed as an early morning pick-me-up.
Today being the first day of fall makes me happy. The crisp nights can begin, but the cold days of winter? They can hold off for a while.
