One of my many series on this blog is called “The Best Feelings.” It aims just to stop and recognize the good things in life. Here are the other parts of this series if you need some more warm fuzzies: “The Best Feelings Part I,” “The Best Feelings Part II,” and “The Best Feelings Part III.” This addition to the series will be fall themed because, well, fall. Please feel free to add to the list by commenting below, and it may even show up in another part of this series. Enjoy!
- Watching a dog kick up leaves with her back legs. Snowie seems to find kicking up leaves particularly satisfying.
- Crunching leaves under your feet.
- Apple picking with your significant other. Yep. I got The Ranger to do this. He’s so incredibly tolerant of me.
- Drinking spiced drinks. Yes, “spiced,” not “spiked.” Although, if that’s your thing and you’re of age and not driving, then you do you, my friend.
- The morning light in fall. I swear that it makes for some of the prettiest pictures.
- Eating baked goods. The baked goods game is always on point during fall. A Jeanne in the Kitchen did a particularly yummy looking baked good on her blog post, “Pumpkin Cinnamon Twist.” She said that it didn’t turn out how she wanted but, oh my gosh. It still looks so good.
- Wearing warm sweaters again. Ah, I can finally surround myself in a cotton cocoon and disappear into fluffy softness.
- Catching and landing a beautiful, fall brown trout. Fish tend to get feisty during the fall because they know that winter is coming. * insert copyrighted picture of that “Winter is Coming” meme here *
- Being at an acceptable point in the year to put up the Christmas tree and Christmas lights. Yes, I am that person who puts up Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving. No, I am not ashamed.
- Sleeping under a literal pile of blankets. Snowie quite enjoys this as well. She has a thing for blankets.
- Buying a hot coffee/tea for someone or having someone buy you a hot coffee/tea.
- Having pumpkin-based and pumpkin-related food everywhere. I like pumpkin, and I don’t know why it can’t be a year-round staple. I guess that it would make it less special if it was a year-round food though.
- Carving pumpkins.
- Seeing the light at the end of the semester. Students and teachers, you know what I’m talking about here.
- Seeing the pretty, changing colors
Hello, living in Melbourne Australia where we call fall Autumn and not having Thanksgiving as a tradition it’s nice ready about your things in a different country that you like but still being able to relate to some of the same things about Autumn 🍂
Neat! I didn’t know that. I’m glad that you can still realte to some of the things. 🙂 Is pumpkin a big thing for Australians like it is for Americans?
