Fall is by far my favorite season. Nothing can compare. Don't get me wrong, the other seasons have their place it's just that Fall is such a beautiful time of year. It represents crispy weather, family gatherings, and the start of a wonderful succession of favorite holidays, beginning with my birthday.
I know it's not officially Fall yet, but it is to me and here's why. Last week, I had to turn the air conditioning off in the car because I was so chilly. Yesterday, I noticed the Halloween decorations popping up in the grocery store. And on the way home, I spotted pink and red hued trees on the mountains. I can't help but get excited.
Today, Dave and I took advantage of the beautiful outdoors. We drove up the canyon to Bridal Veil Park. We skipped rocks and dipped our toes in the freezing snow melted water. We ate turkey sandwiches, carrots, and apples. Finally, with our bellies full, we laid on our sleeping bag and enjoyed doing nothing. Romantic picnics along Provo River are the best.
On the way home, we drove past my favorite fruit stand, which is now open for business. Driving home with an overflowing bag of fresh peaches definitely marks the start of Fall for me. :)
