Today is the first day of Fall and I for one could not be more excited! This is my absolute favorite season. Winter obviously blows, spring is bleh, and summer forces me to expose my super pastiness and St. Louis humidity is nothing to laugh at. But Fall is something special. Case in point:
- Gorgeous foliage & decent weather
- Delicious flavors – pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel
- Cozy fabrics – wool, flannel, denim
- Cute fashion – boots, sweaters, plaid
- Great holidays – Halloween, Thanksgiving
- Fun seasonal activities – pumpkin/apple picking, bonfires, trick-or-treating
This summer kind of sucked – extreme heat, working a lot, having my shit stolen – so I’m welcoming Fall with open arms! Lots of fun up ahead – my friends are getting married in 15 days, football tailgating, Halloween parties and more!
I think it’s safe to say now, that it’s finally spring-like in St. Louis. If we get a freak snow storm tomorrow, you know who to blame. It’s been really nice all week; we even had to turn on the AC last weekend!
What’s currently making me happy:
Tulips outside our apartment! Thanks, Landlord!
Peeps! In all their Easter glory! I love peeps, but they must be yellow or pink chicks. None of those bunnies, thank you.
Something I’m not digging right now – but is also a sure sign of Spring – are my horrendous allergies. Itchy eyes, sneezing, the works. My car is covered in a thin film of pollen and when I’m at home with the windows open, my eyes go nuts. You take the good with the bad, right?
The last few weeks of not drinking have been kind of rough. I’m really looking forward to going out Easter weekend, but proud of myself for making it this far. Only 10 more days to go! More on what I’ve learned through sobriety later…
