All the Autumn Vibes…. | A Discussion Post About the Ethereal Thing That is Fall

Happy Pumpkin Time Everyone!!!

I don’t really write discussion posts on my blog but they are something I always wanted to try so why not start now? The inspiration came like a lightning bolt and before I knew it I was already typing this post out. As you guys are well aware my outlook is all about seeing the magic that life offers in everyday occurrences which births a lot of my poems and vignettes. Magic can be wonderful! But alas, it can also be terrible. So what I wanted to talk about today was all my favorite (and some not so favorite) things about fall. That season that comes and goes so quickly, so quickly.

Apple and Pumpkin Picking

The feeling I get from picking my own apples is unreal. I imagine I’m out in the country on my own farm and harvesting all the best, sweet juicy apples that I can’t wait to eat when I get home. Of course this all happens in my head, lol, as I’m climbing the trees and subtly not noticing the signs saying “DO NOT CLIMB THE TREES”. Oops.

Picking out the best pumpkins is also one of the nicest feelings in the world. I always pick out two. A big one I can carve and a little one I can keep on my desk all through winter.

School Starting Again

September used to be my least favorite month out of the entire year. Growing up, I hated school. HATED it. And I honestly never hate anything. But school. I was super shy and super insecure and never wanted summer to end. (This is probably a big reason why summer is my favorite season overall.) So when Autumn rolled around so did my anxiety.

Now that I have been out of school though for a few years and working, I find I enjoy September more and more as the years go by. I haven’t completely shaken the negative feelings but maybe as more and more time goes by…

Scarves and Sweaters and Boots, oh my!

I’m all about the summer sun and shorts and flip flops. No lie. But the change over to scarves and sweaters and boots just… makes me feel so safe and comforted! Since the weather is picking up too, it also makes me feel really warm which is a very GREAT feeling for someone who is usually cold.

Winter’s Impending Arrival

I do appreciate the existence of every season. For there to be summer there has to be winter. I do not hate winter at all but I do tend to get a bit down during the darkest days of the year. Winter is not my least favorite season (spring is believe it or not) but the cold really does get to me. I can feel it in my bones and I never seem to get warm enough. But, I will admit there is no feeling quite like watching the first snowfall. As long as it’s just enough that I don’t have to shovel it in the morning, lol.

Pie

This speaks for itself.

IT’S PIE SEASON Y’ALL. I am pro all kinds of pie. Please, yes, give it all to meeeeeeeeeee! My favorite though is blueberry crumb! The only downside to pie is that I wish I could EAT a whole one at once but alas then I would get severe indigestion, my dears, and that is no fun.

Halloween

There is nothing bad about this. All good vibes here. Halloween is just the epitome of MAGIC. The costumes, the candy, the tingle of something extraordinary in the air… Halloween is just indescribable and it makes me feel so alive whenever it rolls around. I just… I just love Halloween okay?

I want to try to hold onto Autumn this year. It makes me feel a bit better about life in these weird times. We all need any little bit of happiness we can find. So I toast this post to Autumn. May your reign last long this year.

What are some of your favorite and not so favorite things about fall? Hopefully by talking about it we can all be more present in this ethereal season and make it last.

Till next time,

  1. what a wonderful post. autumn is my favorite season for so many reasons. I also was an extremely shy child and school always brought a bit of worry, now that I am a teacher of young children, I can totally understand those who are quiet and try my best to make them comfortable.

    1. Aww thank you Beth! Thank you for understanding as well ❤ Yes, school is tough for introverts but the education is worth it and life does get better as you grow up and get more confident! God bless you for being a teacher! Both of my parents were too, and it is such an under appreciated profession. Your job is so important, especially in building a bright future for our world ❤ ❤ ❤

  2. I’ve begun craving pie pretty much every day, and I woke up just wanting lemon meringue so bad that I ended up making two mini ones from scratch, and I’ve still got a bit leftover, and it’s absolutely delightful. Autumn is my favorite season, by far, and I’m so excited it’s finally here! I wore my first sweater today, and it was just the best.

    1. Aww Mary, I love it! Believe it or not I have never tried lemon meringue pie so that definitely need to go on my list of food to try, lol! 😀 That’s awesome that you bake, I love it too! Making your own food and then eating it, is like, one of the most gratifying feelings in the entire world ❤ ❤ ❤ AND YAY SWEATER WEATHER!!!!!

  3. I love this post SO MUCH! Fall everything, all the time. I also hated school… LOVE learning, can’t stand school–I was way too shy, introverted and interested in other things for that environment, too. Also, please tell me more about blueberry crumb pie!?…I’ve never heard of it, but it sounds AMAZING.

    It’s definitely time to commence the Halloween movie marathons, thanks for the reminder 😉

    A toast to Autumn and all the magic it brings!♡♡♡
