I adore fall. I adore it being cold enough that long sleeves are necessary. I love the changing leaves, the crackle of the fire. I love mornings spent reading together with my children. I love fall flavors and fall scents. I love the slower , calmer pace. I love the schedules and routines.
There are many things I love about fall.
I also love how easy it is to participate in the season.
Take a nature walk. Make hot tea. Curl up with a good book. Light a candle. Pick Apples. Make a Pie. Pull on a sweater.
I’m not near finished talking about everything I adore about fall, but I am going to stop here so that I can leave you with this quote that made me laugh.
“From my observation, the older you get, the more you like the word cozy.
That’s why most of the elderly wear pants with elastic waistbands. If they wear pants at all. This may explain why grandparents are in love with buying grand kids pajamas and bathrobes.”
– Holly Goldberg Sloan, Counting by 7s
Isn’t that hilarious? And perhaps a bit too on the nose. But at least the first part is right. I don’t emended being particularly obsessed with Coziness in my twenties.
What about you? How do you feel about Autumn?
