I miss you, Autumn.
I am beyond ready for fall. It happens every year around this time. Even though Austin has only had 50-ish 100+ degree days this summer (compared to 100+ last year), I am dying for some cool breezes and sweater weather ( I’ve got some really cute sweaters just waiting to be worn and loved). The promise of endless falls (or no winters, at least) is the reason I moved to Texas, but we’ve just skipped right over my favorite season every year since I’ve moved here.
I’m also really into a trip to the pumpkin patch or apple orchards, but apparently they don’t have those in Texas, so I’m going to have to make do with caramel apple cider from Starbucks and $10 pumpkins from HEB.
Here are some things I love best about fall. Let’s gaze at them longingly, together…
Layers! How I’ve missed you.
Apple pie cider. Add a little brandy and I’m in.
Knit hats. I wear them and love them and don’t care what anybody thinks about my melon head.
Roasted pumpkin seeds. My tried and true recipe is here. Please send me your extra seeds so I can squirrel them away.
Fall leaves. Last year they just kind of died and fell off the trees without turning pretty colors because of the drought. Le sigh.
What’s your favorite season? Are you super fancy and say autumn instead of fall?
