I know, I know, most people just love Christmas time… well, me-not so much. It is so chaotic and busy and did I already say CHAOTIC?! I dread the shopping and the lines.
Not to mention I gave birth on Christmas morning! So over time, as I have gotten older, fall or autumn (whatever you’d like to call it) has become my favorite time of year. I just wish it lasted longer.
The leaves starting to change-not much in Orlando-but it does happen!
I love taking the kids to all of the different Fall Festivals and Events….I just adore this season. The slightly cooler temps-I can actually get outdoors more with the kids and not feel like I’ve just spent a summer day walking around Disney World. You know that feeling…hot, sweaty, GROSS.
Pumpkin Spice Lattes & Caramel Apple Spice(!) beverages from my favorite little spot. (you know where *wink* Starbucks!)
All of the delicious apple and pumpkin smelly candles and hand soap.
Opening the windows!
And Finally FOOTBALL(!!!!!!!) is back.
Just the thought of it coming soon makes me happy. I am so excited to get out the decorations… I am already driving my husband crazy–more than the norm, by asking him daily to get the stuff out of the attic.
I have decided that I am going to decorate on September 1st.. that way I can stretch the season out a little longer. September 1st to the day after Thanksgiving (which is BY FAR the best day of the entire year!) That gives me almost 3 full months to enjoy the yummy smells and all of the harvest decor.
I also love this time of year because people in general are nicer, they seem to care more. There is more giving and volunteering going on. It is just a nice, cozy, warm and fuzzy feeling that I wished lasted all year.
Do you have any tips for me to make it feel more like Fall?
I want to enjoy this as long as possible!!!
