When you wake up in the morning do you look as deliriously happy as the woman in the photo? Me either, but here is a list of things that will cheer you up and make you look forward to Fall.
Sweater weather is better weather and you’ll never change my mind. You can have your sun and sand. I’ll take a caramel macchiato and a cozy knit any day. Throw in a flannel infinity scarf and you have my Fall uniform. What will you be wearing this season?
And not frumpy old winter boots either. Tall, soft, luxurious leather (or vegan friendly, if that’s your bag) boots are a must for Fall. Dress up a pair of jeans or tights with these stylish boots. You already broke the bank buying them so you better get used to wearing them every day because you won’t be affording any other new shoes for a while.
Apple crisp, apple tarts, apple cake, Apple Jacks; whichever is your favorite apple treat there will be an abundance any day now. I’m partial to apple infused bourbon but we can’t all be as classy as me.
The Return of Good TV
Finally, TV will be good again. The return of good TV, which is one of the most important reasons to look forward to Fall. Thanks to Netflix I was able to watch some quality programming this summer but I am running out of series, here. I am anxiously looking forward to the Fall line up.
Cozy, cozy flannel sheets. The kind that, as soon as you wake in them in the morning you start thinking about getting back in them that night. They may make it excruciatingly painful to get out of bed in the morning but it’s worth it for a few hours of their comfort.
Who doesn’t love a cool night and warm fire and a nice glass of bourb… I mean a warm mug of hot chocolate?
That’s a word, isn’t it? If not is should be. It should be a profession, too. What’s better than walking into your house after a long day at work to smell supper warm and ready for the taking. Don’t answer that. There are a few things better, but this is pretty great, too.
Display them, decorate them, eat them, drink them in your pricey latte or smash them into smithereens. Whatever your flavor, it’s the pumpkin time of year so get on with it.
I must admit, as a Canadian girl, you guys really know how to do Thanksgiving up big. We Canucks will share a turkey a few weeks before Halloween and then it’s over. Our neighbors to the south have developed an entire brand around the holiday. The food, the decorations and the family fun are second to none. So, anyway, can I get an invitation this year?
The best holiday of all. Your kids do all the work and you can eat their candy. They love dressing up and collecting loot and you are ensured that you’ll have piles of tiny candy bars to lift from their rooms until Christmas.
Does this one even need an explanation? It’s pie. Pie is good. Pie is warm and comforting and you can put cool things on top of it like whipped cream, ice cream or a touch of that bourbon. What? Like it didn’t cross your mind.
Shall we cap off the list with a big bag of bad news?
Football: It’s Back!
You won’t see your husband until some time in the New Year if you are lucky, or maybe that reminder just made your day. No judgment here. Now, go and order a pumpkin spiced latte and admire those boots for awhile. You’ll be trading them for bulky old winter boots soon enough.
