Autumn will be here soon. And with it comes all sorts of beautiful things: cooler weather, cozy fires, delicious food, and so much more! In this post, we’ll look at some reasons to look forward to Autumn and a few ways to get ready before fall officially starts.
I’ve always loved fall, but only in the past few years have I realized why… (Uncharacteristic lack of self-awareness there…) The beginning of Autumn marks the beginning of the coziest part of the year. As we go into fall and winter, the temperatures cool down, and the days get shorter. So we naturally start spending more time snuggled up and enjoying cozy moments.
One of the things I love most about the fall season is how it encourages us to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life. A warm cup of coffee on a chilly morning. A cozy evening spent snuggled up in front of the fireplace. A leisurely walk through the park as the leaves crunch underfoot. These are the kinds of moments that make Autumn so special.
There’s no need to hurry when Autumn is in the air. We can take our time and savor big and small moments.
So if you’re anything like me, you’re probably eagerly counting down the days until Autumn finally arrives. But just in case you need a little reminder of why fall is the best season, here are 70 reasons to look forward to Autumn:
Excited yet? Here are a few things you can do to prepare for Autumn before it officially arrives.
Time to get into the storage closet, basement, or garage and dig out all your fall decorations. Wash anything that needs a good cleaning, make a list of things you plan to buy (like pumpkins and mums), and fluff up anything that got smushed in storage. Get your home ready to welcome the season!
Check your windows and doors to make sure they are properly sealed. Clean or replace your furnace filter. Stock up on weatherstripping, caulk, and other materials you might need to keep the cold air out, and get your fireplace cleaned and inspected if you haven’t already.
Pumpkin spice everything; cozy blankets, scarves, and hats are a must for fall. Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice will become your new best friends this season. Make sure you have plenty on hand to bake all those delicious autumn treats. Make sure you have all the essentials to enjoy the season to the fullest.
Whether it’s going for a hayride, visiting a pumpkin patch, taking a scenic hike to see the changing leaves, or just spending time with family and friends, there are plenty of fun things to do in the autumn months. Make a list of activities you want to do this fall and start planning how you will make them happen.
Start going through your closet and putting away all your summer clothes. Bring out your sweaters, jackets, and boots. Donate any items that you no longer wear. Make sure you have everything you need to stay warm and stylish all season long.
One of the best parts of fall is getting to dress up for Halloween! If you’re going to a party, trick-or-treating, or just handing out candy, start thinking about what you want to wear.
If you have a fire pit, make sure it is ready for fall fires! If you have a garden, start getting it ready for winter. Bring in any patio furniture that you don’t want to get damaged by the cooler weather.
Get your oil changed, check your tires, and make sure your windshield wipers are in good condition. Cold weather can be tough on cars, so it’s important to ensure everything is in good working order before the temperatures drop.
One of the best things about fall is enjoying cozy nights indoors. Make sure you have plenty of cozy blankets, pillows, and candles to make your home extra inviting. Start stocking up on your favorite fall comfort foods so you can indulge in a little guilty pleasure this season.
Autumn is a beautiful time of year, so make sure you enjoy it to the fullest! There are so many things to love about the season, so take advantage of everything it has to offer. Enjoy the cooler weather, the changing leaves, the delicious food, and all the cozy moments that make fall one of the best times of the year.
Autumn is a wonderful time of year, and there are so many things to love about it. From the cooler weather to the changing leaves, there are plenty of reasons to look forward to the season. So whatever your favorite thing about Autumn is, make sure you enjoy it while it lasts! What do you look forward to each fall?
