What is it about the fall that makes us all feel like falling in love? Maybe it's simply because there is so much for us to fall for, and we notice a little bit more when the leaves start to change.
Now that we've waved goodbye to Labor Day, we can look forward to greeting our basic pumpkin spice collection and offering love to our lonely sweaters in the back of our closets.
We're nearing the weather forecasts that call for our beloved boots to hug our feet and snuggling into our scarves that still smell a bit of the last winter.
This reminds us how much has changed since the last time we opened our windows to be met with a crisp chill on our cheek, and maybe this makes the view from the window that much better to us now.
Somewhere between the thicker threads and longer fabrics we find a rekindled joy. We fall in love with the season with our first sip of hot cocoa; as it hits your tongue, warm and quick, you can't help but smile.
Soon, the fall fills us with an inner-warmth that couldn't be matched by the summer's sun. So what is it really about the fall that makes us feel like falling in love?
- It's the bonfires that leave the scent of laughter in your hair for days.
I, for one, find myself smiling more when the leaves start to change, because I realize how much has changed me.
Everything around me seems to glow. It's as if summer's drunken haze started to lift and now we're left with fireplace glimmers and our fuzzy socks.
I'm not entirely certain what it is about the fall that makes you feel like falling in love. You know the year is slowly coming toward an end and you admire how far you've come. You start to look forward to the dreams you still have yet to steal from the season before winter comes.
It's so easy to fall in love with autumn. You play with the beautiful mess of foliage, and snap a great Instagram picture while fake laughing between the leaves. Chances are though - that laugh turned into a real one.
So as fall slowly starts to creep into our hearts... squeeze onto your loved ones as if summer is never coming back, dance in the glittered streets, and savor the pumpkin spiced lattes no matter how basic they are.
Smile as the world starts to fall into place around you. This is the bliss that autumn brings you. Let's all fall in love with life this season.
