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!
Awwwww, today was a beautiful day! A day to feel the sun beaming down on your flesh. A day to see the blue skies and white clouds so bright and puffy. A day to feel a slight breeze brush across your face. A day you could have gone to the park and fed the ducks and birds. A day oh, so beautiful!
You can tell when Fall is drawing near! I hope you had a wonderful day, today!
Hmm …autumn, what is there not to talk about for this season and the city of St. Louis?! Honestly. I love living here in general but when fall comes around, my heart just flutters with joy because of all the color around to see! The trees are changing, as well as falling, the temperature begins to drop and take a change of course, more family events and dinners occur – which means much more family bonding of course!! As well as my birthday and my sister’s birthday since we share the same birthday month, that of being October. Now sadly October does not have a special background of origin as compared to January, February, March, April, May, June, July or August basically.
Going back to what I was saying about the several kinds of trees in St. Louis…where can I even begin?! There are so many colors that I see just from my drive to and from campus each day! There are several trees in Forest Park – which I used to know the exact number of how many different kinds of trees but much more than I would ever know. I know that certain things that make St. Louis so great in the fall would be the little events and traditions that go on that some of us may not even be aware of. Such as the “Best of Missouri Fest” that takes place at the Missouri Botanical Garden, where several companies come together to share some of their products for possible customers to purchase. I know that whenever my family attends, we come home with 3-4 caramel apples from our favorite little shop. Also there is pumpkin picking at Eckert’s Farm, where you can choose any pumpkin of varying sizes to take home and then carve for Halloween.
Now I will say that I am beginning to love hiking though it depends on where. My boyfriend and I actually love taking walks outside in the neighborhood, now sure, that is not the same as hiking, but we make sure to go for bike rides on Grant’s Trail through the city as well as county. Bonfires, now those are the best! A group of friends of mine have been planning on meeting up a few times each month just to go outside and have a bonfire with this horrible cold weather coming upon us, so we must make the best of it! Roasting marshmallows and creating the best s’more possible!
I will say that fall traditions vary from person to person but making sure to share those traditions with others makes fall even better, because there are more opportunities to spend amounts of time with friends in one of the best seasons possible for this city. There is so much color and beauty out there – so make sure to spend time exploring it while you can as well as creating more memories with friends along the way!
