Fall has always been my favorite time of year. Call me crazy but I can only handle the hot weather for so long. Maybe it is because I was raised in the Alberta prairies where we have hot summers yes, but we have long cold winters. And call me crazy again if you must but I love the cold winters as well. Some of my favorite memories include cold crisp winters nights, drinking hot chocolate and watching snowflakes fall outside the window. But that is for another day, today we talk about fall.
Just last week it was almost 100 degrees here. The weather though seems to have finally taken a turn to the cooler side and this could not make me happier. Even last night while walking the dog I could feel the chill in the air. The trees are starting to change and it won't be long before all the trees around us are drenched in spectacular color. Soon the leaves will begin to fall and we will get to hear them crunch beneath our shoes as we walk down the street. I can hardly wait.
One of the things I will always miss about living in Boston is the New England fall. It is unlike anything you will ever see at this time of year. I will always be thankful that I was able to experience all of that for the 6 years we lived there. Breathtaking doesn't even begin to describe it.
Perhaps one of my favorite things about fall is the return of the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks. I had my first of the season a week or so ago and there are many, MANY more in my future. Thank goodness Chris spends the majority of his days working in Starbucks stores and can bring me one home at no cost.
My other two favorite things about this time of year is the start of the NFL season. GO SEAHAWKS! 2-0 baby! And in just two short weeks hockey is back. YAY! I could not be more excited. What's your favorite thing about fall? Or not favorite thing.
