Fall is a beautiful time of year as the leaves change colour, temperatures get cooler, and time spent with friends become a bit more intimate. Today is the first day of fall and I thought I would share with you why I love fall so much.

Ten things I love about fall:
1. Decorating for Hallowe'en in October is something I get excited about each and every year. Something as simple as a pumpkin decoration gets me all happy in anticipation!

2. My favourite television shows start and with the sun going down a lot earlier, watching television in the evening becomes much more enjoyable. Anyone watch This Is Us? I think I have found my new favourite show!

3. I get to bring out my favourite clothing item: the blanket scarf. There is a lady in Bownmanville called The Scarf Lady and she sells blanket scarves which is where I bought the one in the picture below. I love my blanket scarf as it keeps me warm and is so cute!

4. In the fall coffee dates become much more common and I love how intimate they can be. Sitting inside a coffee house chatting about work, family, and life in general with a good friend can be just the social interaction I am looking for.

5. Hallowe'en movies appearing on television is another thing I love about fall. I don't think there is a year that passes where I don't watch Hocus Pocus - the greatest Hallowe'en movie around- but also introducing my nephew to movies like Casper can be great fun as well.

6. The leaves change colour and our fashion and makeup change colour as well. Gone are the pink lip glosses as we welcome dark plums and reds to match our clothing.

7. Fall vegetables are now in season! Butternut squash soup and root vegetables in a nice stew are so nice to have on a cold evening.

8. Reading a great book. I am almost finished with Baby Doll by Holly Overton and I have to say, I really enjoy it. I like how each character has their own challenges and they aren't considered perfect.

 9. My life is on a schedule! Being a supply teacher can give me similar schedules to the students I teach. Sleeping in and staying up late is great for the summer but I am ready to work each day and have a daily schedule.

10. The last thing I love about fall is Hallowe'en! Dressing up in costumes, handing out candy, eating candy- I love it all! Below is a picture of my best friend and I wearing the masks of Statler and Waldorf from The Muppets.

That concludes my list of things I love about fall! Please let me know in the comments what you love about fall or if you don't like, tell me what you don't like! I look forward to reading your comments. Never miss a post by following me on Bloglovin'!
