This past Friday marked the first official day of fall, and this season brings with it a vibrant array of sensory experiences. I had so much fun writing a Farmers Market A to Z list a few weeks back that I've decided to do it again, in order to celebrate the season. Hopefully this post will inspire autumn weather to return to the St. Louis region. I hope you enjoy this list. What are you favorite fall things?
Cool breezes and crunching leaves
Everywhere full of color
Glow of jack-o-lanterns
Hot tea, hot chocolate, hot cider
Introspective moments – As we enter the last quarter of the year, what accomplishments can we celebrate, and what else can we bring into our lives?
Knit sweaters and scarves
Nature preparing to sleep
Orange hues at sunset
Quiet nights, after summer evenings were so alive with crickets and locust
Squash, savory soup, salted caramel
Under the covers, such a cozy feeling
White chicken chili
eXquisitely scented candles with ambiguous yet festive names like Fallen Leaves or Flannel
Yummy cinnamon and caramel treats that smell even better than they taste
Zealous squirrels scampering about for their food
