Summer Days, Drifting Away….

Apple in a tree

Tomorrow marks the first day of September and there’s only 5 more days left until the unofficial end of of summer. Where did the time go? Although I will miss swimming in our pool, I am truly looking forward to many things about the Fall:

  1. Pumpkin spice lattes and toffe mochas from Starbucks
  2. Big Ten Football
  3. Apple and pumpkin picking
  4. Donuts from the cider mill
  5. Crunchy leaves
  6. Listening to James Taylor’s Greatest Hits, Tori Amos, and Sarah McLachlan (their music reminds me of Fall for some reason)
  7. Watching “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown”
  8. Cooler temperatures so we can finally turn off the AC!
  9. Thanksgiving – when I get to go home to Michigan and see my parents and family
  10. Fall running – you knew I couldn’t leave that out!

What are you looking forward to most about the Fall?


  1. Speaking of crunchy leaves – one thing I like about fall is running through the crunchy leaves. Can’t wait for the cooler temperatures that fall brings!

  2. Great list! I agree with all of those (even the music!). I’m also looking forward to wearing fall clothes. I’m completely sick of my summer wardrobe ­čśë

    • Brittney – I know what you mean. I feel like my capri pants have been overly worn. I’m looking forward to jeans!

  3. I love running in Central Park in the fall!

  4. I’d say ditto on pretty much every number on your list. I am a huge Tori fan and love when the air gets crispy. The running is so wonderful in the Fall! Plus Big Ten football is the best!
