The summer has ended, the days are getting shorter, the nights are getting colder and the leaves are changing colors and falling freely. Yes, it’s that time of year again, autumn is here and I’m absolutely excited, it’s the best time of the year!
And don’t get me wrong, I’m not happy that summer is ending, I’m just thrilled that fall has arrived.
The beautifully colorful leaves, drifting slowly through the air, resting peacefully on the ground and creating a beautiful sight. This simple sign, a gift from nature, is the perfect symbol for this perfect season. The weather starts to cool down, not yet freezing like the heart of winter, but cool enough to have some fun with your wardrobe. Light scarves and sweatshirts, light jackets and boots, jeans and a hoodie, autumn is undeniably stylish.
Also, fall may be the end of summer, but it also represents the start of so much more. Students of all ages, from kindergarten to college, get that funny feeling of excitement when a new school year starts in the beginning of fall. Many of our favorite sports, such as football and basketball, soccer and hockey, all begin in the fall. Fall is Halloween, Thanksgiving, the world series and a bunch of happy parents, relieved from the burden of summer. Fall is the time to fall in love, because no one wants to spend the winter cuddling by themselves. Fall is the time for new beginnings. It’s the time for cool nights with hot coco, brisk mornings to wake you up and windy days to blow the colorful leaves away.
So embrace the change of seasons, because this is the best time of the year!
