And yet, I’m ready for fall just because it’s my favorite time of year. I’ve always said that fall is the season of the dandy. Time to pull out the tweed and flannel. I love me some sweaters both lightweight and chunky. I am much more likely to wear hats and caps in colder weather simply because of the necessity. I always love the first cold day of fall when I wrap a wool scarf around my neck, just enough to keep out the chill.
However, there seems to be a mentality that shifts after Labor Day. Back to work. No more summer Fridays. Vacation is over. I remember as a child dreading it because that meant returning to school. I’ve been amused that I continue to maintain that mentality as an adult working year-round. Therefore, I officially declare the continuation of the care-free summer spirit through mid-November, right on time for the beginning of the holiday season. There are plenty of fun fall activities: apple picking, flea markets, football games. Let’s enjoy them (in style of course)!
