My Top 5 Favorite Fall Things

With fall fast approaching, these are some of my favorite things about the upcoming season.  

There is so much that comes to mind when I think about fall and everything that comes with the season. School is back in session, pumpkin spice is back, and Halloween is right around the corner. With fall being in full swing, here are some of my favorite things when I think about fall: 

Cozy sweaters and sweater weather 

I’m a sucker for a nice comfy sweater when the leaves start to change color and the air becomes crisp. There is just something about the combination that creates the perfect mood. It’s like having a blanket wrapped around you all day. 

Boots and fuzzy socks 

I also love boots and fuzzy socks. Nothing feels better than putting on a nice pair of cozy socks and Uggs. I know that when fall comes my feet are always getting cold. This helps that and keeps my feet toasty and dry all day.  


Another one of my favorite things is spooky season. The decorative spiders and bats, candy, haunted houses, and dressing up as anyone you want, are all overwhelmingly exciting. I also think that Washington has the best fall season which adds to the spookiness of it all.  

Pumpkin spice 

Pumpkin spice is another highlight of the season. While some people find it overrated or don’t like it at all, I’m happy that it is all the rage and can’t wait to be able to get all my favorite pumpkin spice drinks that I have waited all year for.  


Who can pass up a day to sit with family and friends and fill up on the annual day of food? The turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, and sparkling cider, all make it worth the year-long wait for the glorious day.
