Wanting to Know you Wens.

i had my first pumpkin spice latte of the season and with every sip, it was officially autumn for me. It's my most favorite season of the year and already it's starting to feel like it even here in Texas.

besides football and wearing my husband's sweaters, these are some other things i'm looking forward to:
the return of tights (i've been coveting a pair of these sexy ones by ASOS ever since seeing them on Cup of Jo), endless visits to starbucks to get my fix, colorful scarves, and breaking out my knee-high boots.

i'll even welcome that feeling early in the morning when your alarm goes off and you wonder how it's already time to get up when it's still so dark out and your covers are warm and the ground will be so cold. yup, i'll even welcome that feeling because chilly weather means we can make use of our fireplace.

what do you love about fall? 

ps. one thing i will desperately miss about VA is the turning of the leaves...

lovely post! my favorite part of fall is definitely pumpkin EVERYTHING. it's time for pumpkin spice lattes, as you pointed out. as well as donuts & bread & pies & cookies & bars & wow that's a lot of carbs going on there. aside from the food, tho, there are all the awesome home fragrances - apples & cinnamon, pumpkin, autumn leaves, FIREPLACE, cloves... okay, that's getting into christmas, but still. : )

i love the crispness to the air, snuggling in blankets, breaking out the long sleeves (today, first day of long sleeves)!

happy autumn (almost officially)!

Oh autumn! I love it so.

I am excited about wearing tights and scarves, watching the leaves change colour, having a fire in the woodstove and of course (of course!!!) the almighty pumpkin spice latte! I am definitely driving through Starbucks on my way to work tomorrow.

I hope you're feeling better, and less under the clouds.

More mail soon, when I get a moment to breathe! Until then, am sending big hugs.

oooo i love that photo of the bed...i could do snuggle into that!!
Thankyou for your comments they mean a lot, my fav think about fall is getting to wear tights, and boots (not much of a shoe girl)
And log fires. Love them. x

Yes, the leaves are definitely starting to turn here in Virginia!

I had my first sip of salted caramel hot chocolate, and it made fall's arrival official. I can't wait to start shopping for my fall wardrobe!

I absolutely adore chunky sweaters and breaking out sweatshirts (I'm turning into a fan of the non-hooded variety). I love thick, knee-high chunky socks over jeans, under high boots. I love apples and pumpkins and the thousands of things you can make with them. I love fall :)

Erin said...

Beautiful photos! And ohh yum! I must go get a Pumpkin Spice Latte now.

Abby said...

YES! I LOVE Fall! We hardly ever feel season changes here in S.A. But this past week has been so wonderful with the weather! I am totally looking fwd. to tights, boots, scarves, & yummy coffee! :)

Fall is my absolute favorite! I love the return of pumpkin spice at sbux, watching the aspens turn to gold in the foothills, cardigans and opening my patio doors at night to let the cool air in while I bundle up in my favorite quilt on the couch.

Happy Fall!

the air.
the food.
the warmth of the house.
the colors.
the new school.
the football.
the colors.
the crunch.
the tv shows.
the starbucks.

the pumpkin patch, crunching in leaf piles, and sipping cider!

I like wearing tights and sweaters and drinking tea!! My friends are about to move into an apartment with a fireplace, so that should be fun. :) I really want to go camping too!! Now that being outside is tolerable. :)

Leesh said...

Everyone loves Fall except for me. I am excited to start wearing scarves again. I wish someone would do a scarf swap.

Cassie said...

Absolutely my favourite time of year too, infact I have just written a post about such that fact! I love the crispy, crunchy leaves underfoot and the way the whole world is turned into a sepia toned beauty.

Looking forward to boot, tight and scarf wearing weather just like you too.

Oh my goodness I've been waiting for fall all summer. I'm normally a fall/winter person and dread the summer! Totally agree, pumpkin spice lattes start it all! :D

Lauryn said...

Some of my favorite things...

The beautiful color (the leaves are starting to change here!), cozy nights at home, warm beverages, sweaters and scarves, boots, pumpkin flavored foods, an excuse to eat those pumpkin flavored goodies, Halloween! Thanksgiving! Christmas shopping! Wow, the list goes on and on :) Clearly I love Fall.

Julie said...

Those boots are AMAZING!

I wish I could wear my boyfriend's sweaters, but he doesn't have any sweaters. Boohoo!

Autumn is still my favorite season...
