It’s the Little Things About Fall

Its The Little Things About Fall | It’s fall! Cool weather, brightly colored leaves, apple cider…all around there are little things that put a smile on my face.

Fall 2013 officially begins this weekend! It’s the little things about fall that gladden my heart and put a smile on my face.

Apples. Though apples are available year-round, they take center stage during fall. I’ll soon have caramel apples, apple cider, apple crisp, baked apples, apple pie—they’re all delicious!

Changing leaves. I enjoy the vibrant colors of changing leaves, the way they flutter to the ground, and the way they crunch when walked on.

Lower energy bills. There are a few precious weeks in the fall where the temperature is just right—both the heater and the air conditioner remain off. For these weeks, the electric and gas bills are blessedly low.

Giving thanks. We can and should give thanks throughout the year, but Thanksgiving provides an opportunity to focus specifically on gratitude. It’s so meaningful to collectively reflect on the many ways the Lord has blessed us!

Cozy clothes. The cooler temperatures beckon me to don the clothing equivalent of comfort food—scarves, thick socks, sweaters, etc.

  1. My boys would answer your question with one word: Football.
    I’m enjoying the flavor of pumpkin (in coffees, breads, etc.).
    We’ve had a few cooler days, too, which is nice.

    All things said are so true. The clothes, the pumpkin spice and (at my age) the cooler temperatures are so welcome! In my location the snow will be here soon but for now it is wonderful!

  3. As much as I do prefer summer, I do love the fall clothes. And the fall colors are truly my favorite. I also got married in the fall (October) so I guess I’m more fond of fall than I thought when I began typing this little comment. 🙂

  4. Fall is my favorite time of year. I enjoy everything you listed about fall, but here are a few of my favorites not listed…hayrides, bonfires, & hot chocolate in the mornings.

    • Oh, Misty, you’ve brought back fun memories from my childhood. I haven’t been on a hayride in years! I remember having so much fun on them (and while roasting marshmallows around a fire afterwards). Those are awesome things about fall!

  5. I agree with what you say. Although here in the UK we do not have Thanksgiving. And it is already cold with the heating on. So no gas and electricity savings either. We had a good harvest of apples and pears from our trees in the garden.

    God bless.
