Oh, how I love the Fall weather. I know to some, they may not care for this time of the season but I truly LOVE IT! Did I say how much I LOVE FALL! 🙂
Fall is the time when I prepare to wear all of the scarves I have stored in my closet. I am a scarf fanatic! I have a variation of colored ones and plain ones as well as winter scarves and silk. Wearing them around my neck brings out the boldness in me, it showcases my personality and most importantly they keep me warm! I even wear them as head wraps as well. I also love that that Fall season lets me know that Thanksgiving is around the corner and the smell and taste of sweet potato pies sound so delicious and delights my heart!
Fall is also a time of the year when I can see the beauty of God’s creation with the changing of the leaves, I can feel the cool brisk wind on my face and enjoy having my windows down in my car as I ride to my destination listening to the wind. I love Fall! It’s one season I don’t feel that stays around long enough but I truly embrace it when it’s here.
What are some things you like about Fall? Do you have any favorite Fall drinks or food?
While I didn’t attend all the events at Homecoming, I got to experience a little slice of it.
On Friday of Homecoming weekend, my sister and I attended Sibling Bingo! My sister is so cool and always down for a good time. When she was in college, she was very involved. I was never as outgoing as she was, but I feel like when she comes to Fontbonne, she gets to see a whole other side of me. I love sharing my Fontbonne experience with her and introducing her to different people from the community, including my rad friends and professors.
I told my sister on our way to bingo that we had one mission, and one mission only: WIN. Of course, everyone at our table (including my skilled sibling) got a bingo, some more than once, except for me. It was still such a fun time and I’m so glad I went.

Now that I’m in a student org, I also got to witness Fall Festival in all it’s glory! On Saturday, I teamed up with President of Students for Life, Sarah, and set up a table along with our other esteemed SFL members. We handed out Fitz’s (a major hit, no surprise) and homemade Peanut Butter Trail Mix Puppy Chow (it was delicious, if I do say so myself). Needless to say, I think it was a success!
I would highly recommend going to Homecoming. Even if you’re busy, consider taking out a little time to have fun. You won’t regret it.
Hi everyone! I congratulate for continuing to read because now we are one week 3! This week we’re going to talk about the best season of the year: FALL! 🍂☕🎃 One of the main reasons I love fall is the drastic weather changes. Sweltering hot summer days and nights turn into chilly, breezy fall days with crisp, colorful leaves falling to the ground from the trees. (yikes, that was super poetic…)
I also am in love with all of the clothes that I can wear in the fall, as opposed to in the summer; Sweaters, jeans, boots, scarves, and beanies are just a few of my favorite things… Maroon and Army Green also happen to be two of my favorite colors, and now we are finally in the season that it’s acceptable to wear them again!! I love all of the layers that come with fall (despite it being 100 degrees on the first day of fall as I write this). Fashion is definitely one of the better things about fall!
There’s also Halloween we get to look forward to throughout the entire month of October and then Thanksgiving throughout November (personally two of my absolute favorite holidays to celebrate). Anyways, hopefully these cool temperatures make way to us soon, and I hope fall treats all of you as well as I expect it to treat me!
(btw I hope you all caught the reference to Grease in my title 😉)
see you later!
With it being officially fall what better to join the weather and the leaves changing colors then visiting Laumeier Sculpture Park.
One of their most recognizable sculptures.
Located off Rott Road and only 20 minutes from the Arch, Laumeier Sculpture Park is a must see! You can spend all day walking around discovering all the sculptures that this park has to offer. There is so much talent lurking around each corner and behind each tree. But, make sure to grab a map so you don’t miss anything! The park is free and open from 8 am until sunset. Oh, and did I mention it was FREE?! Take a group of friends and visit this fun and astonishing park, take lots of pictures, and even a lunch to enjoy.
