I love fall so much. There’s so many reasons why. I mean, the list is SUPER long. First, the weather! Who doesn’t love sweater weather? It’s crisp, cool and just feels super refreshing after those dog days of summer, that’s for sure. Especially here in Texas! Also, my birthday is at the end of October, next week actually, and I have to say, I love my birthday. There’s just something about having a whole day that’s your oyster that makes me feel really special. But the biggest reasons I love the fall season are directly related to growing up in southern New Jersey.

I have some of the best memories on earth from my younger years, running around the neighborhood while the gold and red leaves danced in the wind like fire on the trees. The smell was so clean, and earthy, and specific. The wind would make my cheeks rosy and my eyes water. I’d run until my lungs hurt and laugh until my stomach muscles cramped. I’d ride my bike all over the place, and shrug off my sweater when exertion was at a peak.

I remember going to my best friend Akemi’s house, where we’d wander the rows of the apple orchard that her family owned. The smells were intoxicating, and there’s really nothing like reaching up, selecting an apple of your choice, and plopping down on the soft earth, leaning up on a tree and taking that first juicy bite of a freshly picked apple. These are some of the sweetest memories I have to look back on, and sitting here typing this post, I can almost hear the rustle of the leaves, and the laughter echoing off the trunks of the trees. Best. Ever.
