Fall Is The Most Beautiful Season

Fall Is The Most Beautiful Season

I mean, the colors are just so gorgeous.

Colors are beautiful. I have to say that one of the most beautiful times of the year is fall for that exact reason. I bad mouth New York a lot because I can’t deal with how cold it gets in the winter; however, the fall months almost make it worth all of the snow and cold that we have to endure.

I really do feel bad for those who can’t experience the beauty that falls upon the northern states during the last months of the year. I just can’t believe that they're missing out on so much amazing color. The reds that light up the world, the yellows that start to cover the roads as they leave their trees and the oranges that fall silently to the ground in preparation of the cold months to come. The color scheme is one that you will always associate with the autumn months. The yellows, reds and oranges slowly became my favorites — especially next to the blanket of white that covers the earth at the pinnacle transition from fall to winter.

I wasn’t always a fan of autumn though. I was plagued by the memories of warm sunshine and beautiful days in the summer. I was convinced that cloudless skies and sun rays that made the world warm was the best time of year. I was too busy with the thought of vacations and days off school to even consider how amazing any other season could be.

Now I know how wrong I was. I finally see how chilly days can be so much better than the warm ones. I can see how wearing a big sweatshirt and drinking a steaming drink can be the better alternative to sitting in your own sweat, even though the air conditioning is on full blast. I love being able to wear cute outfits without fear of being too warm just walking to class. I realize that going apple and pumpkin picking can be one of the most fun things to do on weekends. And sitting at home curled up with a blanket and a good movie can be a great way to spend an evening.

I am just so fortunate to be able to live in a place where we have all four seasons. I am so lucky to be able to be in a place where the weather changes slow enough to see it happen. And I will never be able to thank my parents enough for staying in a state that gives me the privilege to watch the world change slowly and beautifully each month.

Autumn is definitely one the best seasons to be able to watch the world change in a beautiful way. It’s the best time to be comfortable in whatever it is you decide to wear. Autumn is hands down one of the most gorgeous times of year for all its colors we get to see. If you have never seen autumn before, when you do, red, yellow and orange will never look the same again.

I Blame My Dad For My High Expectations

Dad, it's all your fault.

I always tell my dad that no matter who I date, he's always my number one guy. Sometimes I say it as more of a routine thing. However, the meaning behind it is all too real. For as long as I can remember my dad has been my one true love, and it's going to be hard to find someone who can top him.

My dad loves me when I am difficult. He knows how to keep the perfect distance on the days when I'm in a mood, how to hold me on the days that are tough, and how to stand by me on the days that are good.

He listens to me rant for hours over people, my days at school, or the episode of 'Grey's Anatomy' I watched that night and never once loses interest.

He picks on me about my hair, outfit, shoes, and everything else after spending hours to get ready only to end by telling me, “You look good." And I know he means it.

He holds the door for me, carries my bags for me, and always buys my food. He goes out of his way to make me smile when he sees that I'm upset. He calls me randomly during the day to see how I'm doing and how my day is going and drops everything to answer the phone when I call.

When it comes to other people, my dad has a heart of gold. He will do anything for anyone, even his worst enemy. He will smile at strangers and compliment people he barely knows. He will strike up a conversation with anyone, even if it means going way out of his way, and he will always put himself last.

My dad also knows when to give tough love. He knows how to make me respect him without having to ask for it or enforce it. He knows how to make me want to be a better person just to make him proud. He has molded me into who I am today without ever pushing me too hard. He knew the exact times I needed to be reminded who I was.

Dad, you have my respect, trust, but most of all my heart. You have impacted my life most of all, and for that, I can never repay you. Without you, I wouldn't know what I to look for when I finally begin to search for who I want to spend the rest of my life with, but it might take some time to find someone who measures up to you.

To my future husband, I'm sorry. You have some huge shoes to fill, and most of all, I hope you can cook.

It's Still March But I'm Ready For Summer

Where are you summer?

I always get excited for fall and winter. And don't get me wrong, they are arguably the best seasons because they bring all the best things to us. Cute sweaters, adorable boots, and some snow are all things that make me extremely happy.

For about a month.

And after that month, I just get so tired of the cold weather and early nights. Let's be honest with ourselves: winter is exhausting.

It's March, it's still cold, and I'm completely ready for summer to be here already. Honestly, we can skip spring, because I am just in the mood for summertime.

Imagine it now: the sun doesn't set until 9 p.m., you can show off your cute new bathing suit, and you don't have to worry about wearing a coat every single time you go outside. Sound amazing, right?

Maybe I'm getting ahead of myself. After all, we still have quite a bit of time until summer is here. At least two more months of snow and freezing cold wind separate me from the end of school year and the bliss of summer.

But even though there's still a lot of time to go until the summer, I can't help but be excited already. I can't help but be thinking about cute outfits I can wear once it's warm outside and all the amazing experiences I'll be able to have over the summer that I never get to do when it's cold outside and I'm stuck on campus.

Anyone else craving summer now?
