Usually whatever season is coming up at any particular time tends to be my favorite season, but I feel like I tend to look forward to fall more than any other.
One thing I love about fall is the prospect of the harvest/holiday season and the food that comes with it! Being from a small country town, I always used to enjoy the fall gatherings, festivals, and barbecues that would happen throughout the season. And I definitely enjoy eating the fall foods like turkey and dressing, barbecue pork, and pumpkin pie.. and those SOUPS!! Chili, butternut squash soup, burgoo, loaded baked potato. yum!
Plus, there's just something about stepping outside on a brisk fall afternoon and seeing the sun at its right-before-sunset stage. The leaves, grass and sky and buildings all kinda seem more colorful and accented. Plus the weather's usually just right here to be able to manage with only a sweater or light jacket.
And fall really brings people together. From football games to haunted houses/trails, to trick-or-treating, to just spending time walking outside or driving. And of course the paramount event of fall togetherness is always Thanksgiving... good food, good fun, good family time... and of course the Thanksgiving Bondathon.
Oh and when the air conditioner is finally switched over to the heater in the house... Ahhhh.........
For some reason, Nickel Creek always seems to be a good thing to listen to during the fall. Buy/borrow the album or download some songs and pop em in your car stereo.
