10 Things We Love About Fall

Our Favorite Things About Fall (in no particular order):

1. apple cider (spiked for Mommy)
2. The Big E - even though it's exactly the same every year and we never buy anything but greasy, over-priced, fair food
3. pumpkin picking and carving
4. hot tea with lemon
5. not raking leaves and not feeling guilty about it (they're just gonna keep falling)
6. fuzzy socks
7. new clothes (or old clothes that feel like new cause you haven't worn them since last year)
8. chili and cornbread
9. cool mornings that make you want to sleep in (until you hear that inevitable voice calling from the second bedroom)
10. camping - when we were one person less (the sticky, smelly one) and could go without having to watch Elmo on the laptop and spend the entire night in the car (see "Camping Trip From Hell" in the archives)

Those are my favorites. What are your favorite things about the season?

One of my favorite things about fall is my husband's birthday. I, always, try hard to make it memorable and, frankly, I love giving people gifts and making them feel cool.
