5 Reasons To Love Fall

One 
Football season. 
Need I say more? Day drinking by 9:00am and tailgating Saturday afternoons away. Cheering on your team and watching as they compete to win another national championship (Roll Tide). From high school games on Friday nights through NFL games on Monday nights, there truly is no better season than football season.
Two
My Birthday. 
I love my birthday. Actually, it's my favorite holiday of the year (Christmas holds a tight second). The one day a year I get acknowledged by everyone and their mother (thank you, Facebook!) and have an excuse to do whatever I please. I'm not too fond of turning 24 next month, but that's a story for a different day. 
Three
Scarves, boots, and leggings.
Is there anything better than a combination of those three? Not a chance. Fall clothes are by far my favorite thing to wear. It's cold enough to break out the scarves, boots, and leggings, but not yet cold enough to have to bundle up in coats and gloves. Perfection. 
Four
Chili, Hot Chocolate, and anything apple spiced. 
I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin spiced anything (I know, I know. Please don't hold that against me), but apple spiced, that I love! My favorite fall cocktail to make is an apple cider martini (I didn't think it sounded great either at first, but believe me on this one). Pair that with a big bowl of chili and top it off with a big cup of hot chocolate (extra marshmallows) and you have one very happy little girl over here. 
Five
Cooler weather. 
This one hardly needs an explanation. Especially if you are from the south. Summer is great and all, but  there is only so much one-hundred degree temperatures and ridiculous humidity a girl can take. It's safe to say, I'm over summer.

  8. Fall is one of my favorite seasons for many of the same reasons! It's one of the only things I'm looking forward to when I leave Hawaii to head back to the mainland.
