I went to Nashville a couple of weeks ago for a wedding, and it just so happened that it was one of the coolest weekends they’ve had this year–like 60s in the morning 70s during the day. Since it’s still a million degrees in Austin, I, of course, got all kinds of excited about that and packed my new fall ankle boots I’ve been dying to wear and a couple of scarves. AND I WORE THEM.
It was great, FYI.
But on the other hand, I don’t know why I always want fall to come so quickly. Once the temperatures are in the low 50s, I’m cursing my eternally-cold feet, grumpily searching for my house shoes all the time, and constantly guarding the thermostat in the hall. Sassy voice and wagging finger: Ain’t no one turnin’ down my heater, y’all.
JUST KIDDING! Even though it’s true, I don’t love being abnormally cold all the time, I still love the romance of fall and winter. Bring it on. With potato soup and cozy blankets, please.
Fall always makes me want to plan sweet gatherings with friends. There are so many excuses: pumpkin carving, comfort food dinners, pumpkin spice latte coffee dates, and season premiere watching parties for all the new shows ;)
“All too often people get caught up in the anxiety of their fast-paced lives, feeling there is no time to celebrate. I feel we impoverish our spirit if we don’t regularly come together for some planned happiness to make memorable moments beautiful.” -Alexandra Stoddard, Happiness for Two
So what’s your favorite thing about fall? How are you going to celebrate it?
Also, yes I will acknowledge it.This is the start of one of those weekly-personal-rambling series. Is that okay with you? I just want to get a little more personal, share what’s on my heart during the weeks (serious, silly, and everything in between), and hopefully start a few conversations with you about life. :)Personal
