We had a bout of cool weather a couple of weeks ago. Seriously, it was 58 degrees in the morning for a couple of days! Ever since then, I’ve been longing for the REAL fall. I’m one of those people who is all about sweaters and jeans, cooler temps, changing leaves, and (as the popular meme says) football. Go Cowboys!
Then, right smack dab in the middle of fall, we hit the holidays season! My favorite time of the year, end of October through the end of the year. So many reasons to love the last 3 months of the year. I’m sure that many would agree.
One of the things that make this year so special is that we have our own house. We are done with moving around (at least for now) and are putting in roots. There’s just something about that feeling that has me excited as we go into my favorite time of the year. Like I can feel free to go overboard, just for the fun of it.
On top of all that, the girls are getting old enough to have a little more interest in seasonal changes and holiday fun. I can’t wait to sit down with them to work on various craft projects or to show them how to make some of our favorite seasonal foods (pumpkin rolls, anyone? Broccoli cheddar soup? Apple cider?)
And then, like I mentioned earlier, there’s always football. My fascination with football began as a rivalry with my dad. He was a big Kansas City Chiefs fan, and well, I just had to be on the opposite side of that fence. I’ve been a proud (most of the time) Cowboys fan for over 15 years now–thru good times and bad, bad, bad times. These days, my dad is more into NASCAR than football, but he still says his favorite team is “whoever is playing the Cowboys.” Lots of good family memories.
What about you? Do you enjoy the fall? What do you look forward to the most?
