Why Fall Is The Best

Crunchy leaves, pumpkins, oversized sweaters. What's not to love?

The summer heat has overstayed its welcome. We are not quite ready for the onslaught of snow and ice, nor are we prepared for spring showers. Fall comes at the perfect time, reminding us of the beauty all around us.

Just scrolling through pictures of fall favorites on our social media feeds warms our hearts. We cannot wait for the season of comfort, change and togetherness. Fall is a common favorite for a variety of reasons.

The decorations

Few things shout “home” like holiday decorations. I can easily call to mind the countless jack-o-lanterns, turkeys, leaves, etc. that my mom adorns our house with. It’s a sight to behold when we all take note of the changing seasons. Our noses delight at the mingling of apples, cinnamon and pumpkins this type of year.

The atmosphere

The crisp, cold, raw, biting air invigorates your soul. It’s hard to describe the feeling you get when you walk out the door on a nice fall day. Everything is clear, OK, possible. The sky, a gray or dark blue, gives off a soothing vibe. We love bundling up in soft, comfy clothes- oversized sweaters, black leggings, boots and scarves.

The festivities

Pumpkin carving, going to haunted houses, getting lost in corn mazes, cheering at football games, sitting around bonfires, you name it. There are so many fun, unique activities we can spend our weekends doing that are not easily accessible year-round. Who else wishes Reese’s Pumpkins were sold year-round? And although I personally am not a fan, I know that candy corn is a definite crowd pleaser.

The transition

Change is in the air. The new school year comes into full swing. The leaves’ colors shift from dull green to gorgeous reds, oranges and yellows. The heat is no longer overpowering; cool temperatures creep into the forecast, and there is a breeze in the air.

The people

This is a popular time of year for meeting new people and cherishing old friends. Family gatherings allow you to step back and realize just how blessed you are by the people you have in your life. Who better to do all these fun fall activities with than the people who mean the most to you? Also, snuggling up in blankets to watch Halloween movies is such a cozy, relaxing way to spend your time with loved ones.

As the beginning of the best season quickly approaches, I am determined to take full advantage of these glorious few months. When the days start to grow shorter, I will work harder to make them count.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
