Tomorrow is the day. The first day of fall. I would like to be the first to officially welcome you to #sweaterweather #applepicking #autumncolors #pumpkinpatch #bootseason #ilookcuteinflannel #itsgettingcold #turntheheatup #imsickofthis #imsocold #thissweaterisitchy #enoughalready #whenisspring
It’s here. Release the pumpkin scent. All hail the cinnamon sticks. Shove a nutmeg up your nose, whatever. It is now your time to revel to your heart’s content in all things fall. Actually you have to wait a day because fall doesn’t start until tomorrow. Technically today is Fall Eve, the night we all hang stockings on the fireplace in the hopes that when we wake up in the morning they’ll be filled with all the leaves that fell in the yard over the past month.
I may have given you the impression I don’t like fall a couple of weeks ago but it’s not that I don’t like fall. It’s that I like summer more.
To give you a comparison that might be easier to understand, look at it this way. If the seasons were men, fall would be Jeff Goldblum and summer would be Idris Elba. That of course makes Daniel Craig winter and spring filled with wet dog poop in the yard and squished worms. So let’s call spring David Spade.
I love living in a climate that has 4 distinct seasons. I just like to make sure I corral them into their appropriate months, which is why I don’t light my pumpkin spice candles until fall, as opposed to the first time I spot them in the stores, somewhere around July 3rd.
Last week Country Living magazine released a “What’s your Fall Candle Scent? graphic on Instagram. I liked it and figured you would too, on this most auspicious occasion, the day before the first day of fall.
