It's here, it's finally here, Fall. Sort of. It is September 1st, which to me is the official start of fall. Starbucks has released its fall line-up of drinks and it means the weather can FINALLY start to cool off. Maybe? I went shopping over this labor day weekend and stocked up on my fall essentials, which included the cutest black trench coat for fall/winter in the south as well as 3 pairs of cords in different colors. I've been craving fall for over a month now, just waiting for the day I can pull out my leather riding boots.
I'm also itching to go apple picking, I waited too late last year and went at the end of October and the trees were pretty picked over, so I'm going in September this year! I can taste the apple pie already!
This quote by William Cullen Bryant sums up the season for me, "Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile." There is something magical about fall when the leaves change and fall to the ground, the air gets crisp and you can wear your favorite cozy layers and take long walks. It's the best. So run out and get a pumpkin latte and say it with me, Hello September!
