Yum....

I love fall. As I was driving I rolled down my windows. Its the season where no air conditioning is necessary, nor a blast of heat. Strolling down the sidewalk in jeans and a long sleeved shirt is enough and the smell....no not simply of bonfires, but of fall itself....is divine! Before you know it, pumpkin pie sneaks its way onto the grocery store shelves and leftover apple pie into your refrigerator. The crunching of leaves creating a beat as you walk and watching football with fellow Bears' fans (no matter the score) are ideal pastimes for the time of year. I love fall!

We underestimate this time of year. In the beautiful summer we complain of heat, in the picture-perfect winter we have ice-melting chores to tend to...but in the fall (and spring alike), the best of both worlds collides for a perfect time of year!!!

Why do you like fall?

Fall is my favorite time of the year:) Below I copied and pasted a post I put on my blog on 09/01.

It's finally September...this summer has seemed really long and I am so happy for fall to be just around the corner. I love the cool crisp air, the colorful leaves, pumpkins, apple cider and football all day on Saturdays...there's nothing like it!
