The Fall of it All
With the rise of pumpkin spice and the cozy aesthetic and all things spooky season, it seems that Fall is the popular girl of the four seasons. But I gotta be honest. As much as I wouldn’t want to live anywhere except the northeast, if I could wish a year-round summer into existence, I would.
Maybe it’s the residual dread of a new year of school starting that still gets to me, though I haven’t seen the inside of a classroom in a couple decades or so. The panic that would set in on Sunday nights as soon as I heard the ticking of the 60 minutes clock lives on, 27 years after graduating from high school.
Sure, I’m a fan of cardigans and oversized sweatshirts as much as anyone. But I’d trade them all in if it meant unlimited trips to the beach were in my future. That I could sit outside on my deck every night, reading or writing or listening to music.
Unfortunately, I live in Massachusetts, not San Diego. So I need to start focusing on the good things about Fall, and here is my list…
Boston in the Fall
Every October, my husband and I plan a day in Boston just for ourselves. My favorite thing to do is grab a coffee and window shop on Newbury Street, walk through the beautifully scenic Public Garden, and explore my favorite cobblestoned-street neighborhood, Beacon Hill. In fact, it was my summer visit to this area that inspired Adele’s fall novella, coming soon!
Much like George Costanza, I’m a big soup person. In general I enjoy cooking much more in the fall, when my kitchen isn’t nine hundred degrees. In addition to soup I like to make homemade scones and cookies, pizza and pepperoni bread, and lots of comfort foods to enjoy while I partake in sitting on my comfy couch and watching…
And, last but not least
A Good Book Set in The Summertime
I really enjoy reading Elin Hilderband’s novels in the summer for a fun read that will guarantee some drama with an oceanside backdrop. Because really, whatever season you prefer to live in is only one book away.
Okay, I may have just convinced myself that fall isn’t that bad after all. Tell me, what’s your favorite thing about pumpkin spice season?
