I love fall. Don’t you? Monday was officially the first day of fall. Never mind that Starbucks has been selling pumpkin spice lattes for over a month. Now in Texas, it will still be warm for a while. But if the temperature dips below 75, everyone here drags out their fall clothes.
After a long, hot Texas summer, even the hint of fall makes me happy. I love watching the leaves change color and that crispness in the morning air when I go for my daily walk. I’m ready to buy my pumpkins to set by my front door and dust off my front door wreath of fall leaves. And I can’t wait to curl up with a blanket and a book, and drink hot cocoa in my warmer (not sleeveless) PJs.
I can feel the fall coming, especially in the morning. There is just that hint of a temperature drop. Yeah, I know in the South, we’ve got to wait a while until true fall arrives. But until then, I might have to crank down my air conditioner, light a pumpkin scented candle and pretend.
What do you look forward to with the coming of fall?
