[Fall]ing into colder weather

“This place smells like Christmas!”

“Um…it’s supposed to smell like fall…”

So went the conversation outside Wegmans a couple days ago. Outside the store was a display of pumpkins, wreaths and fall decorations that smelled like cinnamon. After I took in the whole picture [smells and view], indeed I got a fall flavor. My automatic thought was horror! It cannot be almost Christmas! I HATE the cold weather!

Don’t misunderstand, snow is beautiful, the smells, tastes and warm fuzzies associated with fall and winter are great. I just hate the cold, especially if I am underdressed for it. This year I’ve decided to embrace the season rather than dread it’s coming. I cannot prevent it and considering last year we had a span of two weeks with negative degree weather, I’m going to take an “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!” approach.

Yesterday’s weather maxed out at 65 and this morning I woke up to rain and 50 degrees. I officially consider it fall because the coming week is more of the same. Today I want to highlight the beautiful things about fall and cold weather and just some other things I’ve been enjoying lately.
