Happy belated first day of fall! I love all things autumn — hoodies, fires, cool evenings, beautiful fall sunrises. Today I’m sharing my top five favorite things about this season.
Favorite Things About Fall
1. Apple picking and apple fritters.
Every year, my husband and I take the kids to go apple picking. Coincidentally, the local orchard also specializes in making the most delectable pies, donuts, and apple fritters. The baked goods are to-die-for. If you don’t get there early enough, the 8 gagillion trays of fritters are empty and you go home empty-handed. It’s a sad, sad day when that happens, friends. Lesson here? Get there early.
2. Fall trail running.
There is nothing better than running in the warm fall sunshine with the sound of crisp leaves crackling and crunching under your feet. The smell, the sounds, the beauty of nature. But watch out for wet leaves. Those can be dicey.
3. Hot apple cider and a campfire.
One of my favorite things to do is drink hot apple cider next to a cozy campfire. The warmth of the cider and the smell of a small campfire… Add in some marshmallows for roasting? Perfection.
4. Puffy vests and fleece shirts.
I am a huge proponent of puffy vests. I wait all year long to wear mine. Summer is much too hot for a puffy vest. Winter is far too cold. And spring is usually just too darn wet. But fall… that’s where it’s at. Bring on the puffy vests!
5. All the holidays.
All the fantastic Jewish holidays are in the fall: Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot. Then we’ve got Halloween and Thanksgiving. Who could ask for more?
That sums up a few of my favorite things about fall. I have plenty more but I would say these are definitely my top five.
Happy weekend, everyone!
