Are you ready for fall…or not so much

I am such a summer girl!! I love summer! The sun, the heat, the humidity, the grilling, even cutting grass and I really love my garden. But summer 2015 is over much too fast and that’s downright depressing.

So to cheer myself up I came up with 14 reasons to get jazzed over fall.

First there’s pumpkin pie to look forward to. We even have pumpkin spice ice cream here in Cincy and it’s terrific and you can only get it in the fall.

And the colors! Lordy, the leaves chaning is amazing. It’s pure magic. And it’s now officially candy apple season. Yummm… 

Then there’s hot chocolate with marshmallows, gotta have the marshmallows. Okay, you can have hot chocolate anytime but you have to admit it tastes best when there’s a nip in the air and nothing gets you warm like a cup of hc.

Halloween is just around the corner with all the decorations and kids begging for candy. Who doesn’t love sneaking a piece?
And then there’s the clothes. Jackets, sweaters, scarves, new jeans and boots! Boots are fantastic and a change of season is a great reason to shop.

Thanksgiving is the best holiday of all. The family gets together and it’s the perfect kickoff to the holiday season. And the food!!! Lord have mercy nothing beats Thanksgiving food.

And it’s back to hot coffee instead of cold coffee, fires in the fire pit and in the hearth, and the beginning of all the new shows on TV. That is for sure a great reason to embrace fall.

So what about you? Are you a summer gal/guy? Looking forward to fall? What are you looking forward to most?
