Fall is, without a doubt, my favorite season. I can’t think of a single thing about it that I don’t love, but here I’ve tried to narrow down the Top 5 things that define my ideal autumn experience.
5. “Harvest Moon” by Neil Young
4. Hot Herbal Tea with Honey
Most every night, I make myself a cup of hot herbal tea with honey. Right now I love Yogi’s Throat Comfort Tea.
3. Pumpkin Spice Candles
When I’m inside enjoying a book or suffering through homework, opening the window to let in the crisp breeze and lighting a pumpkin spice candle puts me in a good mood again. Funny story: Tuesday night I had a couple of friends over to watch Glee. As I struck a match to light a candle, the match broke and the flame fell onto my fake hardwood floor. As I was beating the fire out with a DVD case, my friend Lindsey yelled to me that my sweater sleeve was on fire! What did I do? Stop, drop, and roll. No worries, there wasn’t any damage to the floor, my sweater, or me, but it was definitely an adventure.
If I kept any on hand at my apartment I’d probably approach the Christmas season weighing a million pounds.
Although I haven’t gone trick or treating in years, I love the playful attitude of this holiday. Now I dress up and go to parties or out with friends, and I still have a great time. This year I plan on being a mummy!
