Top 5: Fall is Coming!

Hello Friends!  How are you all doing?  Things are going well in this neck of the woods.  It's really hard for me to believe it's already September, but I'm excited it is because that means Fall is almost here.  I don't know about anyone else, but this Summer's heat was pretty treacherous, and I'm excited for a break in the weather.  Yesterday and today are definite signs that the heat is pulling up--such beautiful weather!!

Here are the top 5 things I'm looking forward to this Fall: 

5.  The Leaves
I absolutely love the changing colors of leaves when Fall arrives.  Every October growing up, my parents would take me and my siblings to the Shenandoah Valley.  The leaves were spectacular and I'll never forget our rides on Skyline Drive.  I'm hoping to get Scott up there one of these days so he can witness it--although, he grew up with some pretty amazing views in New England!


4. Fall Fashion
Three words:  layers, scarves, boots.  I've been waiting so patiently all summer to pull these items out of storage and sport some Fall Fashion.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoy shedding layers when Spring and Summer are here, but I'm ready to dust off my boots and wear a scarf without sweating!

3. Cuddling  
I like to cuddle with my man whenever I get the chance, and I'm so thankful he's a cuddler too...actually, probably more of a cuddler than me (our little secret).  But when the temperature drops, my propensity to cuddle increases significantly.  Yep, looking forward to that!

2. Food
The definition of Fall Food =  comfort food.  At least in my mind.  There's no way I want to eat stews and chili when it's 100+ degrees outside.  But after a nice brisk walk in 50 degree weather, that stew or chili hits the sweet spot of my tummy.  Oh yes, I will be trying some new recipes this Fall.  No worries, I'll share!

1. Family Time

My most favorite thing about Fall is that it seems to be the perfect time to visit, catch up with, and spend time with family.  In my heart and mind, nothing beats this!
