[Blogtember Challenge] Favorite Season

Honestly, is this even a question? I live in Minnesota, land of four seasons, but nothing, and I mean nothing compares to fall in Minnesota. Cool nights, crisp mornings, and sunshine for days. If it could be 65 degrees, sunny, breezy, and early October year round, I could get onboard with that.
Aside from the weather, so much anticipation comes with fall. September sets in, and suddenly there are months of fun to look forward to. Football, warm comfort food, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. It is like as soon as one good thing ends, another one begins.

One of my favorite things about the fall, aside from the anticipation that it brings for all of the upcoming festivities, is the change in weather. I do enjoy summer, but I am not a fan of the heat (if you can call what we get in our Minnesota summers ‘heat’). We are just coming off of a week with 90 degree temperatures and 100% humidity, and I literally. can’t. deal. I hate the heat. Hate, hate, hate it. So, when September rolls around and we cool down into the 40’s every night and mornings are clear and chilly, it is all I can do not to skip down the street. I love going for afternoon walks in a sweatshirt and jeans. It is the cutest thing in the world when my little guy is loaded up in his stroller, covered in a blanket and hat with a pom ten sizes too big on the top of it. And does anything beat a bonfire on a cool evening in the fall? I am so excited to have nights like that as our family grows.

Of course, one of the absolute BEST parts of fall is the food. My parents have two apple trees that are already busting at the seams with apples ready to be picked, and I am more than ready to start whipping up apple pies and crisps. Homemade apple pie, white chicken chili, and homemade bread fresh out of the oven just screams fall to me. Of course, it is a requirement that the Vikings game be playing in the background while we prepare and eat these goodies.

I just love fall. I cannot wait to enjoy the days immediately ahead and soak up every last moment of this glorious, brilliant season!

    I'm so jealous of your proximity to apple trees! Haha! I'd love to go apple picking- but Texas isn't the best place for it! 🙂
