My favorite Fall month: October
My perfect Fall music: something like jazz or swing
My favorite Fall something new necessities: a new longsleeve white and/black longsleeve fitted cotton shirt, new Rocketdogs/Merrils, new jeans, chapstick, and anything "spice" scented candles.
My favorite Fall activities: windowshopping, hayrides, horseback riding, walks outside before sunset, collecting leaves, drinking a hot treat on the porch, opening the windows in the living room to let in fresh air in the morning.
My favorite Fall meal: Thanksgiving of course (that's still in the fall right?)
My favorite Fall memory SO FAR: Asheville NC, October 2006 - our last night in town, sitting at Barley's upstairs by the window, watching the sunset and sky fade from bluest blue to pinkiest orange right above the bare black treetops. We sat at that cold window drinking draft Pumpkin Spice Ale for hours just the two of us (Nick and me of course) talking and laughing and loving Fall.
What are some of your favorite Fall memories?
