Fall, aka autumn, in New England is arguably one of the most beautiful sites. When the leaves start to change colors, the foliage is breathtaking. Fall brings a lot of mixed emotions to the people of New England. Our king, Tom Brady, is back in action, but at the same time, our beautiful beaches are no longer the place to be. Apple picking, Halloween, sweater weather, Thanksgiving and all that fall has to offer are things that people look forward to all year long. However, as seasons change we hate to see the old one go. And the anticipation of seasons to come can be hard to cope with.
1. The first day that's not 90+ degrees
Going from weather in the high 90s to low 70s is a harsh contrast that no one is ever fully ready for. We may have spent all summer complaining about the heat, but we never said we wanted to be "freezing."
2. See you later, summer!
When the temperatures begin to drop, we know that the sweet, sweet summertime has to say good-bye. The start of fall comes hand in hand with cooler weather and do I dare say the "S" word? School.
3. Realizing pumpkin spice is back...
Not everything that comes with fall is all that bad, though. Just think, apple cider, hot chocolate, and all things pumpkin spice are back in stock. Woohoo!
4. & with pumpkin spice season comes "spooky season"...
Pumpkin carving, halloween movies, candy and, of course, halloween Oreos, are some of the best things about the season.
5. ... and sweater weather!
It's time to get comfy & cozy. Bundling up in your favorite sweater, sipping on hot cider and enjoying the foliage... there's not much better than that.
6. Don't forget about apple picking!
The orchards will be in full bloom in no time. Who's excited for apple pie?
7. Thanksgiving is just around the corner
Speaking of pie...
8. Who doesn't love football season?
For many families Thanksgiving and football go hand in hand. Lucky for the fans, though, the season starts right at the brink of fall. We've got a few wonderful months full of football ahead of us. (Go Pats!)
9. Remembering that winter is fast approaching
With all the excitement of fall we can get a bit caught up and forget that it will only last for a very brief amount of time. When we come to that realization, it's a terrifying feeling.
10. Winter brings the good, the bad & the ugly
The snow is beautiful and all, but shoveling? Forget about it.
11. Just a few weeks ago when it was just simply "too hot"
But it's all OK, because we think back to just a few weeks ago when it was just simply "too hot." This serves as a reminder that the seasons go by quickly. We'll be back to melting under the summer sun in no time. For now, we'll just enjoy the fall and make the best out of messy New England winters!
