This time of year is my absolute favorite! Something about it almost makes things feel magical and I look forward to it every year. Here are my top ten reasons why fall is the best!
1. Cooler Temperatures.
|I took this photo on November first last year in Gatlinburg, TN. It was one of my favorite shots I got while we were there.|
2. Pumpkin Spice everything.
When I saw this e-card, I chuckled out loud for a couple of minutes before I could move on. It was just so fitting. But really, I love Pumpkin Spice latte's from Starbucks and usually keep some creamer at home during the season. It does seem like everything has pumpkin spice flavors this time of year. I've seen marshmallows and breakfast foods and, yes, even chips. Has the food industry taken the pumpkin spice craze a bit too far? Absolutely! But, I'll happily take it as a sign that my beloved fall is here and just go with it.
3. Leaves and Pumpkins.
4. Fall flavors and scents.
|Leaves is my favorite scent from Bath and Body Works. Great smelling candle!|
|I tried Pumpkin Apple this year and it smells divine. A new B&BW favorite.|
5. Decorating for fall.
Behind Christmas, fall is so fun to decorate for, inside and outside! I love displaying lots of mums and pumpkins outside and making things cozy and warm inside. Oh, and I love fall and Thanksgiving tablescapes. They are so fun to come up with.
While the act of watching football isn't always my favorite thing to do, love all of the things that go along with football season; tailgaiting parties (with all of the party food that goes along with it), friendly rivalries, and, of course, hanging out with friends and family to watch the games. Roll Tide!

8. Bonfires and hayrides.
Bonfires and hayrides are so intrinsically fall that I couldn't leave them off of the list. Who cares if you get home smelling like smoke or a stable? There's just something about gathering around an open flame with friends, roasting marshmallows for some yummy s'mores. Or riding under the stars in a trailer full of hay. So much fun!
9. Fall fashion.

10. Friends and Family.
Like I said earlier, gathering with friends and family during this time of year just tops off this season being my favorite.
I'm so excited that fall is here! (Can't you tell?) What is your favorite season or time of year? Do you love fall as much as I do?
