Top Ten List: Fall

Now that school is in session and lazy days by the pool are no longer, I am ready for my favorite season of the year. 

I love all things autumn.  

Here is my "Top Ten Reasons Fall Rocks" list.....

1.  Pumpkin Spice Lattes return at Starbucks.

2.  Speaking of pumpkins, I can buy a few of the heirloom variety for my front porch!

3.  Trees light up in shades of yellow, orange, and red.

4.  The air becomes crisp, but it's still warm enough to get away with long sleeves and maybe just a jacket.

5.  I can trade out flip flops for flats..........and maybe sneak some boots in too.

6.  Back to pumpkins again.  It's time for pumpkin muffins and pie. 

7.  Soup and hot chocolate season is upon us. 

8.  Halloween!  Costume time!

9.  Thanksgiving!  Turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy..........with family.

10.  Friday night football games at the high school.  A blanket, hot chocolate, and marching band performances at halftime!

Did you really think I'd be able to stop at ten?

11.  Flaming red mums (alongside my pumpkins) for curb appeal.

12.  Fall bouquets at the Farmers' Market, not to mention the other fall produce you can scoop up there.

13.  Leola's fall open house.  With Jan's bittersweet wreaths.

*   *   *   *
There.  All done.

Surely, I've convinced 
you that fall is the best.


  1. You had me at "Pumpkin Spice Lattes".

  2. I can't wait either!!!! I love everything about your list!

  3. Oh I'm so ready for fall...all those things are wonderful! And I seriously can't wait to decorate my front porch with pumpkins, mums, and a bale of straw!
