Just a Few Fall Favorites ~ @AuthorKristina Knight

We're talking about seasons here at WordWranglers, and I have to say that I think every season is my favorite. I love the heat and sunshine of summer and the colors of spring and the smells of fall and snow of winter. But I also get tired of those things after a while, so I suppose its a good thing that we live where we do - because we get to experience it all...and we always know there is something 'new' coming up.

But there are a few things that I love about each of the seasons. Here are a few of the things I love about fall.

The chill in the air.

I'll be complaining about the cold to anyone who will listen in two or three more months. But when fall first arrives, and that briskness hits the air, and my nose starts to get cold...there is just nothing like that. Needing a hoodie outside, breaking out my Bearpaw slippers, taking my favorite leggings out of storage - I love all of that!

The food.

I'm not much of a pumpkin spice fan, but I do love a good soup. And hot cocoa. And soup. Broccoli cheese is a current favorite. Chicken Tortilla. Loaded Baked Potato. And, of course, there are the Thanksgiving favorites - turkey, stuffing, homemade pies. I've gained five pounds just thinking about them all!

The fashion.

Okay, I mentioned leggings and my favorite slippers already, but fall fashion - the chunky sweaters paired with leggings, the ankle boots, the jeans and flannels...I never get tired of fall fashion. I like layering my clothes, and I especially like wearing jeans and leggings and sweaters and flannels without also needing a heavy winter coat that hides it all!

The changes.

Colors of the leaves. The way the sky turns just a little more pink in the evenings and a little more blue in the mornings. How the fields start to brown. The orange of the pumpkins. All my favorite colors seem just a little deeper than usual in the fall and draws my attention. It reminds me that change, while scary, can also be beautiful.

What about you? Do you have a fall favorite?      ~Kristina


  1. Everything about fall is my favorite except wind and rain, which visit far too often! Great post, Kristi!

    1. thanks, Liz! It was really, really blustery all last weekend...and usually that would bug me, but I just snuggled under a throw and watched movies! lol

  2. Ah, my nose is running already with this cold air, and now you've made me soup-hungry. I love fall clothing, too, Kristie. Nice job.

  3. I love a long fall when the weather is crisp but not too cold. It's not so windy that the leaves don't fall off the trees all at once, but but hang on to give everyone a good look.
