In 4 days it will officially be autumn! There is nothing better to me than a good old Michigan fall day. Everywhere you look you see natural gorgeous scenary as the leaves change on the trees from green to reds, oranges, golds, and yellows. Around every corner you see guys throwing a football around, and the weekend plans change from grilling burgers at the park to watching football and munching on wings and snacks. For the ladies, summer dresses and heels turn to sweaters and fuzzy moccasins, and men all around can be found in their favorite team or university hoodies. I personally get excited for knitted hats and little jackets, caramel apples, and pumpkins (along with everything that is associated with them).

I’m an old fashioned girl, I could spend a day at an apple orchard, on a hay ride, in a corn maze, and carving pumpkins and be perfectly happy eating donuts and sipping apple cider til I’m numb in the finger tips and the moon is showing. I long for evenings at home in front of the fireplace, frost tipped mornings, and halloween decorations.

If life were perfect, it would maintain the weather and seasonal attributes of a great fall day every single day until christmas eve, when it would snow, and then january 2nd we’d go right into spring, and summer would start in april. ha.
