Fall is my favorite.
Never mind what comes after. We won’t talk about that now. (This is a happy place.)
For now, we will strictly focus on FALL and all that is lovely.
The vibrant leaves on the trees.
The air turning crisp.
The scent of burning leaves.
Pumpkin spice coffee creamer.
Bags and bags of candy corn in the candy aisle at the grocery store.
Pumpkin patches and hay rack rides and jack-o-lanterns.
Apple orchards and sweatshirts and jeans and the crunch, crunch, crunch of leaves under my sneakers.
Hot chocolate in styrofoam cups at Friday night high school football games.
Wrapped up under a down comforter with the window cracked just enough to let in the nighttime chill and the haunting sound of train whistles in the distance.
Yep, I love fall. Love it down to my bones.
Maybe that’s one of the reasons I had so much fun writing my upcoming novella, An October Bride (releases September 23rd). It takes place during two of my favorite months (September and October) in northern Wisconsin, and includes many of my favorite fall-season things listed above. I can’t wait to introduce you to Emma Tate and Jake Sawyer!
What’s YOUR favorite thing about fall?
