In North Carolina, fall comes late, but it’s worth the wait. The leaves are finally changing, the sun shines every day, and the temperature has fallen to perfect sweater weather. This is my favorite time of year, and I decided to take some time to reflect on why I’m thankful for fall.
Here are my favorite things about the most beautiful season. The best part? They cost nothing.
Hot cinnamon apple oatmeal for breakfast.
Long walks on brisk mornings with the leaves crunching beneath my feet.
The sweet anticipation of family and holiday tradition.
Bundling up on soft sweaters and my warm winter coat.
Healthy, comforting soups and stews that stretch our grocery budget even further.
Cozy nights at home cuddled up in sweaters and blankets.
More time to work on my handmade flannel quilt.
Comfy socks and slippers.
Hot chocolate and tea before bed.
Sleeping soundly in a chilly room under my down comforter.
What about you? What’s your favorite part of fall?
Sitting in front of a fireplace reading a book and just relaxing.
