top 10 reasons fall is better than summer

For all of you summer lovers, I apologize in advance. This girl has never been much of a summer fan (insert gasp here). I'm sick of dripping with sweat everywhere I go and having to run my air conditioner 24/7. So, in true David Letterman style, I've composed a top 10 list for why I think fall is better than summer.

top 10 reasons fall is better than summer

10. 95 degree weather with 85% humidity is long gone

9.   the clothes: boots, sweaters, tights, flannel, corduroy, wool socks etc.

8.   apple picking and apple pie

7.   football games with friends

6.   hot chocolate and caramel apple cider, preferably consuming both in the same day

5.   pumpkins: pie, scones, candles, the pumpkin patch, get the idea

4.   the holidays: turkey day, halloween decorations, crafting with mom, sparkling cider

3.   reading just seems more appealing

2.   fall leaves: the colors, the crunch, the piles

And, the #1 reason fall is better than summer is...wait for it, wait for it...shaved legs and perfectly painted toes are no longer required! (I love a good pedicure but all the summer body maintenance is exhausting, not to mention expensive)

  1. As much as I love summer, I do love this. The last reason especially!! haha

  2. I could not agree more. This post, and just the thought of fall in general, makes me so very happy. I can't wait for fall leaves to crunch beneath my new fall boots and to go to apple orchards and to carve pumpkins and drink hot cocoa!

  3. reason #11: BOOTS. i am so so SO excited to get a new pair! i couldn't agree more: fall > summer :)

  4. As much as I like summer, I agree humidity is the worst! Already dreaming about scarves, apple picking and boots!
