It’s September and I don’t know about you, but I love fall. It’s not my favorite season, but it’s top 4 for sure. There’s a certain romance to every season, but I think fall really nails it. I know for many it can be a time where things just get busy, but try and take a moment to remind yourself each day of something that you love about September.
Every month, I want to bring you a list of #myfavoritethings and here’s my September 2019 edition:
1. The Changing Leaves
This is one of the biggest things I just love about fall. Corey and I usually take at least one day when we know the leaves are good and changing and we just drive for a few hours, enjoying the beauty that is nature in Autumn.
2. Football, Y’all
I know, I know – preseason starts in August. But the real excitement, the stuff that matters, starts in September. Being raised in Wisconsin, I am a die-hard Green Bay Packers fan of course. Always will be. But you’ll also find me rooting for the NOLA Saints – they’re great people and they actively help out their community on a weekly basis. What’s not to love? Also, did you know you can watch games LIVE on the Yahoo Sports app? Made my day!
3. Roasted Marshmallows
I love me some marshmallows. On top of my sweet taters, in my cocoa, and toasted over an open fire. Check out these awesome ways to make s’mores!
4. Pumpkin Anything
Pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin coffee creamer, pumpkin cheesecake. Want a delicious drink that tastes like pumpkin pie? Of course you do. When you’re at your favorite coffee place, order a steamer with a shot of pumpkin. It will change your life. Or at least your favorite fall drink order.
Hiking is great any time of year, really, but fall has some of the best weather for it. Not sure where to go? Check out your local State Parks…or just binge Parks and Rec on Amazon Prime.
I just don’t wear boots much in the summer, but as soon as that humidity goes away and there’s a crispiness to the air in the mornings, I break out my favorite boots and skinny jeans.
7. Apple Everything
Have you ever eaten a fresh apple picked right from the tree? It’s deliciously fresh! Although some can be bitter, it really depends on the flavor. What’s your go-to apple pie recipe? I like to use this one from Pillsbury and just modify the seasonings to my liking. I tend to make my own crust from scratch, but in a pinch I buy theirs at the grocery store and it’s still just as delicious.
I am a TV junkie. I’ll admit to it. Anyone else have like 20 favorite TV shows in the fall? Guess when most of them come back on? September! Stay tuned for a big list of my favorite shows (new and returning) for fall.
9. Wardrobe Change
One of my favorite things to do is switch out my wardrobe each season. I have 3 space bags full of wardrobe staples that I rotate around and it is one of my favorite things to do! I usually forget what I put away at the beginning of Spring, so it’s a fun surprise to open those bags back up and pull out the fuzzy sweaters and autumn shade dresses.
10. September 8th
In case you didn’t know, it’s National Hug Your Hound Day and I don’t know when that started, but I think it’s a great reason to grab your favorite fluffs and give them a big cuddle. Sure, some don’t enjoy the affection…but most do so it’s a great holiday.
