And it’s perfect, because fall is definitely in the air. As a Southern California native, people thought I was crazy when I moved to New York. They said things like, “NEW YORK?! But… doesn’t it SNOW there?!”
We were assured that we would hate the winters most of all, a prediction that proved untrue (in fact, the number one thing we had trouble getting used to was the lack of diversity – in people, food, and thought – in our rural Hudson Valley town).
I’m definitely a four season person. By the end of one, I’m ready for the next, but that means every three months or so I’m excited for all the new stuff that comes along with the change in weather. I guess it makes sense given that I’ve always been a change junkie.
But of all the seasons in New York, Autumn is my favorite. Changing leaves, crisp air, the smell of wood smoke, apples right off the tree, sweaters, socks, and boots… What’s not to love?!
What about you? What’s your favorite part of fall?
