16 Reasons Fall is Freaking Fantastic

Bye Bye Summer

Summer is great and all, but after a while sun poisoning and 98% humidity can wear a little thin. You know fall is the best season; you’re just scared to admit it. I’m here to help you realize just how fantastic fall is. From suede boots to apple pies, fall has got your back. So here are 16 reasons fall is the real MVP.

1. Fuzzy socks and boots

Whether it's cable knitted stylish socks, or fuzzy socks sliding across the dorm hallways, socks are finally back and peeking out of the top of your Hunter rain boots. Adorable.

2. Tea is once again hotter than the temperature outside

Now that you're no longer a boiling mess yourself, baking in the summer sun, a nice hot cup of tea is welcome to mellow you out and warm you up in the cool fall breeze.

3. Flannels... Flannels everywhere

My style just went from wearing as little as possible so the heat doesn't turn me into a puddle to lesbian lumberjack schoolgirl chic real quick.

4. Spending too much money and justifying it on back to school shopping

Deals, deal, deals, and student discounts. I may love fall, but my bank account does not. All that money I made this summer? Yeah it's pretty much gone now.... And winter in coming. But at least I look cute.

5. Fall aesthetic is so rich. Those leaves though!

I cannot express how stunning I find the changing of the leaves. The deep jewel tones of the fall make me so happy, and the crispness in the air makes the entire atmosphere feel clean.

6. Pumpkin EVERYTHING

Sorry not sorry I'm a basic white girl. But pumpkin and cinnamon make me very happy. Have you ever tried pumpkin ice cream? I recommend.

7. Halloween

Dressing up and eating candy? Yes. Running a round with your friends and partying? Yes. Watching scary movies and cuddling? Absolutely. Bring it on.

8. My birthday

Yeah ok, this may not apply to you but guess what, I'm selfish and there are other people out there who have fall birthdays too. Like the twins from the Parent Trap, go October 11th babies!!!

9. Camping is both aesthetic and climate appropriate

Leaves, hiking, boots, hot coco, camp fires, soup, cuddling up in a sleeping bag? I think yes

10. Scarves and Chunky Sweaters

We all know you're secretly a scarf hoarder. We're here for you. We all are. None of us are sure whether that's a scarf or a blanket either. But I do know one thing: I can disappear inside that blanket scarf and a huge sweater, and that makes me happy.

11. Layers!

More ways to be fashionably diverse, layering flannels and vests, scarves, hats, etc. fall is the time for fashion on fashion.

12. New TV is BACK

All your favorite shows have come back from their summer break, too bad you no longer have any time to watch them.

13. No more summer job- No more annoying customers

Goodbye tourists, hello being broke. It's a give and take.

14. New people

New classes, maybe even a new home. If you're going to school especially, fall means meeting new people and making friends. Yay socialization!

15. Fooooooooooooood

Apple pie, hot chocolate, again PUMKIN EVERYTHING, and cinnamon. Oh my god, let's not forget about the Halloween candy or thanksgiving cookies.

16. And that brings me to Thanksgiving

Food. Just so much food. Oh yeah and love and family too I guess. There's nothing like getting together with your most loved people and just stuffing your faces. It's really special.

To The Parent Who Chose Addiction

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

When I was younger I resented you, I hated every ounce of you, and I used to question why God would give me a parent like you. Not now. Now I see the beauty and the blessings behind having an addict for a parent. If you're reading this, it isn't meant to hurt you, but rather to thank you.

Thank you for choosing your addiction over me.

Throughout my life, you have always chosen the addiction over my programs, my swim meets or even a simple movie night. You joke about it now or act as if I never questioned if you would wake up the next morning from your pill and alcohol-induced sleep, but I thank you for this. I thank you because I gained a relationship with God. The amount of time I spent praying for you strengthened our relationship in ways I could never explain.

SEE ALSO: They're Not Junkies, You're Just Uneducated

Thank you for giving me a stronger bond with our family.

The amount of hurt and disappointment our family has gone through has brought us closer together. I have a relationship with Nanny and Pop that would never be as strong as it is today if you had been in the picture from day one. That in itself is a blessing.

Thank you for showing me how to love.

From your absence, I have learned how to love unconditionally. I want you to know that even though you weren't here, I love you most of all. No matter the amount of heartbreak, tears, and pain I've felt, you will always be my greatest love.

Thank you for making me strong.

Thank you for leaving and for showing me how to be independent. From you, I have learned that I do not need anyone else to prove to me that I am worthy of being loved. From you, I have learned that life is always hard, but you shouldn't give into the things that make you feel good for a short while, but should search for the real happiness in life.

Most of all, thank you for showing me how to turn my hurt into motivation.

I have learned that the cycle of addiction is not something that will continue into my life. You have hurt me more than anyone, but through that hurt, I have pushed myself to become the best version of myself.

Thank you for choosing the addiction over me because you've made me stronger, wiser, and loving than I ever could've been before.

Easter Is More Than Just A Day

He is risen, and LIVES today... Not just on Easter.

78

Every Easter there is always a flood of posts on social media, and every post has a similar caption: "He is risen!" And indeed He is.

Not that there is anything wrong with these posts. It's nice to see everyone in their "Sunday best." However, my question is why do we make Easter a one-day ordeal? We should be celebrating the resurrection and life of our Savior every day, not just one day a year.

Jesus's death on the cross is worth so much more than one day. He is deserving of far greater.

So often, we let ourselves be consumed by life and all our problems that we get distracted. We let ourselves forget the work that Jesus did on the cross.

Yet, this should not be our reality because Jesus won.

Jesus won. He defeated the grave. Let that sink in, because all too frequently I feel like this falls deaf to our ears and hearts.

Understanding that Jesus conquered death and has already won the battle for the world (John 16:33) should give us peace.

Having this knowledge should help us to say, "I see these things that I can't fix. But Jesus has conquered death, and everything else is taken care of."

Celebrate who Jesus is and what He has done every day, not just on Easter.

Lord, thank you that I can celebrate the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ every single day. Thank you that Easter is so much bigger and far better than just a holiday. You have defeated death, so now I can rest in that truth--knowing that you will take care of even the most minuscule details of my life. You hold today, tomorrow, and forever. Thank you that I can celebrate who you are and what you've done from now until eternity.
