There are a lot of activities outdoors from jumping in leaves, to fairs and harvest festivals, to football games. My children probably spend more time playing outside during the fall than any other season and as a family, we're in the great outdoors almost every weekend. After all, I’m a fabulous football spectator as a tailgater in 60 degree weather!
After years of saying that summer was my favorite season, fall is edging it out as my number one pick. Definitively, winter is completely out of the running because I really dislike snow and cold weather. Spring used to be ok, but honestly, it is so incredibly cold (and snowy!) here until mid-April, that spring is just a cruel extension of winter. Maryland probably has 2 or 3 days of “spring-like” weather before the heat and humidity arrives. Those two days usually come just before Preakness.
But fall. Oh fall. Warm sunny days, with just a hint of cool air from time to time are perfect for wearing a cute sweater or pashmina without needing a heavy jacket. Fall clothing is so pretty and so soft. I love the sweaters and soft knits.
Fall isn't a day at the beach or the pool, but it is special and fun in ways that summer can never be. I'm glad that fall is here.
Happy First Day of Fall!
