Fall is without a doubt my absolute favorite time of year, but other than the obvious beauty of the leaves falling, what's so great about it, anyway?
1. The air is literally more crisp during this time of year... Yes, even in Florida!
Once it starts hitting the end of October and you walk outdoors, you will quickly discover that even with the Florida humidity, it still is nicer outside than usual. The air begins to feel a little cleaner and crisper as the months inch closer to the holiday season!
2. Three words... Fall. Scented. Candles.
Fall scented candles are personally my absolute FAVORITE just because who doesn't love a little pumpkin spice or white chocolate Christmas scent taking over their room?! I honestly always get so excited as the holidays approach because I know that my room will always be smelling SOLID...
P.S., definitely hit up Target for help on this one!
3. Everyone seems to be a little happier during these months.
Ever heard of seasonal depression? Honestly, I really believe it after witnessing how much happier and kinder everyone seems to be during fall. I really love these months just because everyone really seems to be more friendlier and kinder with a little bit of "holiday spirit."
4. Falls means.... Flannels!
That's right, fall is the one time of the year (especially for us Floridians) where it is absolutely acceptable at any time of the week to break out that stripped red flannel, or whichever color it may be!
5. Good food (calories don't count when it's the holidays)
Grandma's signature pumpkin pie? Thanksgiving turkey with mom's signature gravy? You can, in FACT, eat all of this goodness without guilt when the holidays approach because we hold out all year for these days.
All in all, fall is absolutely the best time of year and the most exciting to look forward to in my book, for more reasons than one!!
