I love the fall. I love it because of the smells that you speak of; and also because things are dying, things that you don't have to take care of anymore,
and the grass stops growing.

As the paint in our hallway literally melts off the wall from this disgusting summer heat (oh yes, it's true and completely gross looking) , my mind drifts and fantasizes of all things fall:
  • Yankee Candle Spiced Pumpkin tarts.
  • hot apple cider in a big mug.
  • hearing the Nebraska Huskers fight song.
  • the smell of wood-burning fireplaces in the air.
  • driving with the windows down.
  • skinny jeans and my black riding boots.
  • picking pumpkins at Rombach Farms.
  • the crunch of fallen leaves underfoot.
What are you visualizing as you stick to your car seat and your hair frizzes?

A nice cool breeze and I don't mean the freezing breeze from the AC.

I love this post. Because I want fall to come more than anything!
I can't wait to:
-put up my harvest decor
-wear a long sleeved cardigan outside and feel the nip in the air
-take T to the pumpkin patch
-burn my harvest smelling candles

OMG I'm dying. Fall, PLEASE come soon!!!!!

Oh, I love fall too. Even though it is different in Florida, it is still awesome.
My favorite part? turning off the a/c and opening up the windows!!!!

I can't wait for fall, either! I love the smell of pumpkin candles. I can't wait to leave some place and not immediately break a sweat as soon as I step outside!
