It must be said: fall is the BEST time of the year! Well, for me it is, at least. Ever since I was a little girl, I can remember feeling the excitement of the first day of school. Not necessarily because I enjoyed it so much, but it was a sense of anticipation.
Picking out my best outfit to wear and waking up to a nutritious meal to help fuel me for the day were just a couple of things that kept me ready to welcome the crisp air and beautiful leaves that come with the season change.
Personally, there are so many things that I celebrate this season like birthdays, holidays, and anniversaries. These moments I love to hold close, and have heightened my love for the season. I know many of you may not be a believer–so let me give you five reasons why fall should be your favorite season, too.
Who doesn’t love throwing on an oversized hoodie and getting cozy on your couch with your favorite rom-com playing!? Or, if you’re like me, a cooking show is on the TV for new recipes to try out for the upcoming holiday season. If you want to get outside, or sit by a bonfire, the hoodie is the perfect accessory to add to keep you cozy. Indoors or outdoors, you are able to indulge in comfort and not feel bad about it!
Daylight Savings Time
Who doesn’t love more time in their day? I must say, I look forward to the annual “fall back” of our clocks in the fall. Getting that hour back allows me the time to reset, a fall favorite pasttime. I take advantage of that extra hour by getting more sleep, and getting an additional task checked off my list of things. Doing this allows me the space to be more present in my work, with my family, and most importantly–for myself.
Having a good hoodie for the season is a fall staple, but we have to highlight the other essentials of fall fashion, too! Fall fashion is all about layering. You can layer crisp button ups with cardigan sweaters. Or, you could pair chunky socks with your favorite pair of boots. Fall fashion is all about cozy, chic, and timeless fashion.
I’ve been adding to my travels, and I must say Michigan in the fall is unmatched. The changes of the trees and the accessibility to the Great Lakes calls you to spend time in nature!
You can take your pick from many pumpkin patches, and apple orchards are the best background for crisp family walks. One of my favorite places to visit during the fall is located in the heart of downtown Detroit. On the weekends, it offers a variety of local fruits, vegetables, flowers, baked goods, and more.
Tastes of the Season
There are some signature flavors that seem to only come around at the start of the fall season. Some of my fall favorites are savory soups like butternut squash, and seasonal fruits like persimmons. It is also fun to get creative with apple cider by adding caramel, having it warmed, or turning into an adult cocktail. It’s a top tier taste of the season! I must also mention the flavor of the season: pumpkin! Hate it or love it, the options are endless for pumpkin finds to satisfy your appetite.
Fall is a feeling of comfort. It is a season where you can connect with those you love. You can see the beautiful transition of mother nature and explore so many places. I hope you love fall as much as I do!
