Autumn is Here

So today I’m sitting at work writing this blog post instead of doing sales-person things. Today, and like the last few weeks, I just feel excited and so in love with Fall. It officially began last Friday so I don’t need to make excuses anymore for my excessive PSL drinking.

The weather is supposed to finally drop tomorrow. That means I can probably get away with a light sweater…..indoors lol. It will only be 79; cooler than it has been but still relatively warm. I’ll take any chance I can get to wear my sweaters and boots. They are admittedly the cutest clothes I own, so I only have about half or less than of the year to be cute and cozy. I will still obtain 1-3 new sweaters each year and maybe a new pair of boots to add to my collection.

I acquired some knee high skeleton socks from Target a couple weeks ago. I wear them around the loft frequently with an oversized hoody. My mom, while making a care package for my sister away at college, made me a cute little Halloween gift bag featuring a little string of sugar skull lights and some fuzzy footies with ghosts on them.

I’ve stocked up on books to read this Fall and Winter while my candles are burning and I’m wrapped in a sweater and fuzzy blankets with hot coffee in my favorite mug. Nothing to fit the season but here are the books I’ve most recently bought: The Girls in the Garden by Lisa Jewell, The Book of Speculation by Erika Swyler, Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, If Our Bodies Could Talk by James Hamblin, and Rejected Princesses: Tales of History’s Boldest Heroines, Hellions, and Heretics by Jason Porath. I will be sure to review a couple after I have read them!

I have also looked through the 13 Nights of Halloween schedule on FreeForm thanks to a recent Buzzfeed article. It’s pretty epic this year and I can’t wait to see my favorite Halloween movies.

I can’t wait for all the leaves to start changing colors. It’s so beautiful. I remember when my sister and I were little and our dad would rake all the yard leaves into a massive pile and we would run and jump into them and hide and play in the leaves. I’m sure a lot of people have similar memories. Fall is so nostalgic.
