So the summer is over, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be excited for the following season. Even though I love a warm summer day, being able to just wear a little dress and some sandals, I do somehow really love the fall. I have always done that. Under you find 10 reason why I welcome fall with open arms.
1: The beautiful colors
The colors of the trees, it’s the most beautiful mix of red, orange, green, brown and yellow. A nice sunny autumn day with a blue sky is simply the best.
2: It’s finally sweater weather!
I love a comfy sweater during the colder months. Finding the perfect one for your wardrobe isn’t a problem, the stores has plenty of all types. Right now I have a timeless cashmere sweater on my wish list.
3: Enjoying hot drinks without sweating
One fun fact about me, I’m a huge tea drinker! I love all kinds of teas. And one of my favorite thing is to sit inside enjoying a cup of delicious tea while it’s cold outside.
4: Fall- scented candles
Time to switch the summer smells, with something else. I’m obsessed with candles, it just make a home so much more cozy and personal. Typically fall scents would be vanilla, cinnamon, Chai, pumpkin etc. Honestly I really want a Jo Malone candle, but they definitely are more on the luxurious side.
5. Playing in the leaves
Being a child again and dancing in the leaves when enjoying a walk with someone you care about. Spending time in nature and appreciate it has for sure a therapeutic effect.
6. Soup season
I love making food, and even more I love enjoying a good meal. In the colder months, I prefer warm food over cold. One of my favorite meals for fall is a warm soup served with some bread. The options of recipes are endless! It’s a soup for all diets and tastes. I personally eat mostly plant based, so I prefer a vegan or vegetarian option. A favorite is sweet potato soup or Thai soup with noddles, yum!
7. Good series back on tv with new seasons!
When the summer is over, finally the new seasons come back on the screen. Honestly, I’m not the biggest tv slave, but one series that I’m obsessed about is Suits. If you havn’t seen it yet, lucky you, I wish I could see it all again for the first time!
8. Flannel PJ’s
Have a nice flannel PJ that you can snuggle in and stay cozy at home is a must!
9. Red wine season
Enjoying a glass (or two, haha) with a good red wine with family, good friends or the person you love, is one of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday night during the fall. It can be together with a great meal or just by it self. Amarone is one of my favorite wines.
10. Closer to Christmas!
When the fall is here we know the Christmas is not so far away. Christmas is that one month during the year with most traditions, and I love it! For me Christmas is a colorful time, well spent with people you love, delicious food, music and following all the traditions. And of course, Christmas shopping!
I hope you found some reason to love fall too.
