For the first post, I'm going to list (in no particular order) five of my favorite things about the season of autumn.
#1: Cooler weather ~ In southeast Missouri, the weather gets noticeably cooler in the autumn. Oh, we'll still have days where highs are in the 80's (one Halloween, it reached 90 degrees!), but overall, the temperatures decrease. Time to drag out the hoodies and sweaters!
#2: Halloween and Thanksgiving ~ Two of my favorite holidays (my absolute favorite is Christmas). Sean and I enjoy decorating the inside/outside of our house for Halloween, carving a pumpkin, and handing out candy to trick-or-treaters. For Thanksgiving, we host for both our families, and I bake the turkey and make dessert. I thoroughly enjoy being a hostess.
#4: M&M's ~ There are always interesting flavors of M&M's to look forward to in the autumn. Last year, it was Candy Corn, which disappointed me. I love this year's Pecan Pie, but it's difficult to find them.
Are you a fan of autumn? What are a few of your favorite autumn things? Let me know in the comments!
Until the next post . . . keep smiling!
