5 Reasons I Love Fall

Yesterday was the first day of fall, but here in Texas, that can mean absolutely nothing sometimes.  I woke up thinking, "Okay, it's fall!  It should be 50 degrees this morning and reach a high somewhere in the low 70s.  It's a crisp cool fall day!" .... Reality set in when I opened the door and remembered I was in Texas.  It was hot!  But hopefully, in the next few days and weeks, we will get to experience cooler weather.

Here are 5 reasons I absolutely love Fall:

1.  Cooler weather is on the way!  It gets hot here in Texas during the summer and honestly, we need a break from it!  The first day of Fall means that the temperature will be dropping soon and we can enjoy being outside without being able to fry an egg on the sidewalk.

2.  Pumpkin Spice!  Need I say more?  This is the time of year when everyone offers a variety of Pumpkin Spice creations.  Coffee, cookies, gum, etc.  I love Pumpkin Spice anything!

3.  Fall Decorations!  I love it when people pull out the hay bales, scarecrows and pumpkins to decorate their homes.   I love making home decorations from fall leaves, (usually silk ones since we usually never see beautiful fall leaves here).  

4.  Football!   Call me crazy, but I love football.  Any kind of football.  Little League football, high school football, professional football.  It's just exciting to watch.  Plus, I know my husband really likes football too, and I like to see him excited and happy when he watches it.

5.  Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner!  Who doesn't love Thanksgiving and Christmas?!  Families get together for fellowship and meals, the smells are amazing, and it's just fun to watch the look of excitement on everyone's face.

Fall is my favorite season of the year.  When we have traveled up to Ohio and Indiana in the fall, we've seen some extremely vibrant fall colors on the trees - colors we'd never seen before here in Texas.  It's just beautiful!  God did a wonderful thing when he created these colors for us to enjoy.


  1. Fall is my favorite too! We have some amazing colors here too, not like Ohio but pretty close. It's high 50s for the next week or so so I'll think about you while we're enjoying our wood burning stove and sweater weather. At least you can get pumpkin spice stuff there, I'm jealous!

  2. My favorite season too! It's been really hot here in New England up until this week, so the leaves really haven't begun turning yet. But they will be gorgeous when they do! Pumpkin spice ... ah, yes. I was just in Walmart last night and was surprised by the amount of different pumpkin spice products in a fall baking display.
