I love fall. I know it's not fall yet, in fact, it's going to be 98 degrees in Nashville today, but fall is just around the corner & I swear, I can feel it. It's already cooler in the mornings & evenings. My two runs this week were not only bearable, but almost pleasant. Almost. I am not a summer runner. I run my best in the fall & winter, so I'm really looking forward to running more often & longer distances as the weather continues to cool off.
Fall also holds two of my favorite holidays, Halloween & Thanksgiving, which should surprise no one who follows me on Pinterest. John & I have a Halloween party every year. I'm already brainstorming costume ideas & pinning pics of party food & decor. I also get super excited about Thanksgiving, assuredly because it's an entire day dedicated to eating. I've already started bookmarking potential Thanksgiving foods & recipes.
Last, but not least, I love fall clothes. I love boots, scarves & cardigans & I cannot wait to break them all out again. I also love fall food. I'm talking to you, Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte... I have a pretty serious love affair with my crock pot & it hurts me to go so long without using it. Soon, girl. Soon. I LOVE soups, stews & chilis. I love chili so hard that I'm actually planning (in my mind) a chili party. I kind of want to do it now, but with the Halloween party in October, it may be too much, but a chili party in February seems so far away & I've got chili on the brain NOW! Sigh...
Happy fall, ya'll!
