I love everything about autumn. I can’t wait for it each year. For as long as I can remember, fall has been my favorite time of year. I’ve always thought this was because I was born in late October (5 days before Halloween) so fall was the very first season I experienced. Whether that’s the reason or not, the truth is this: I cannot get enough of fall.
The colors, the holidays, the changes — it’s all so magical. Every year it’s similar, but every year feels like I’m experiencing it for the first time.
When talking about happiness, one of the key aspects that often comes up is gratitude. Like many people, I don’t spend enough time focusing on what I’m grateful for (and I know I’d be a lot happier if I did!) so today I’m going to write about something I’m grateful right now in this very moment — the reasons I love fall here in the North Country. So, here you have ’em…
Orange is everywhere.
The weather becomes cozy.
Fresh School Supplies.
New autumn smells permeate the air.
Leaves crackle underneath your feet.
The changing trees.
Football season (this one is for my partner, HA.).
The spirit changes in the air.
PIES! (Especially when I can make them in a mug!)
Every season has its upside; however, I believe autumn has a particular beauty to it. Take a walk around campus, you will see a few peeks of the new season.
