Hello fall. It’s finally here.
Leaves are illuminated with bold colors, the air is crisp, and pumpkin spice is the flavor of the month.
My favorite season has arrived, so a proper greeting is in order.
It’s about time, and you have been greatly missed.
For all of you who are not nearly as obsessed as I am, just give fall a chance and try to embrace it.
While yes, our summer tans are fading and the need to cuddle up in sweats has never been more tempting, how could one not love fall?
The weather ranges between a perfect 60-70 degrees, with just the right amount of wind. Frizzy hair is not much of a factor, as the humidity completely vanishes. This is also the perfect weather to gather with friends and cheer on our very own football team.
I think most can agree that fall fashion is all the rage. A comfy sweater, without the need of a bulky jacket, is enough to win me over. I mean, come on, who doesn’t love comfort?
I can guarantee that I, along with many other females, will be sporting popular fall styles including sweaters, boots, scarves and leggings this time of year.
Clearly I favor fall, but after a visit to the cider mill, anyone would. Warm doughnuts and cider? I don’t know what could be better.
We also can’t forget about Halloween. You’re never too old to carve pumpkins, and as college students, we are all well aware that we still like to dress up in costumes.
Haunted houses and Cedar Point’s “Halloweekends” are just a few more perks to add to list as well.
And dare I not mention Thanksgiving. Time off from classes and all the food you can eat in one sitting; not to mention it’s homemade and free. There is no questioning a second serving on this day, and a slice of pumpkin pie is indeed a must.
With winter rapidly making its way around the corner, we must cherish these precious weeks, because before we know it, snow will litter the ground and temperatures will hit below zero.
Makes fall sound pretty nice, doesn’t it?
