Break Out Your Pumpkin Spice!

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?

  1. I’m from Wisconsin, and every fall my cousins and I go to this place nearby called Haunted Hollows. We go on a hayride down this one street in the country where volunteers in scary costumes jump out at you and climb into your vehicle (sometimes even grabbing people OUT of their vehicle and carrying them down the road a little ways).

  2. I’m from Wisconsin, and Fall is starting to hit here. I enjoy going on rides down old dirt roads and seeing the beautiful Fall colors, snuggling under blankets with a book, and going to bonfires! My favorite thing though, is busting out the Halloween decorations!!! As long as the snow holds off a bit; I’m happy 🙂
