What? It isn't Autumn yet????
It certainly feels like it here, with suicidal squirrels jumping out in front of my car everyday and the nights getting dark and chilly by 8:00. The house across from my office window has a pumpkin out. I say "bring it on!" Autumn just makes me happy.
Well, for some of the obvious reasons, like the beautiful fall colors and the amazing weather. Football. What else?
Hockey season - Pre-season games begin this week! My UPS driver Tom has season tickets and due to an unfortunate circumstance, has to sell many of them. I am going to October 18 (Devils), November 8 (Rangers) and December 10 (Bruins) games and am excited to ROCK THE RED again this year.
Sweater weather - Oh, yeah - I love wearing sweaters and jackets. Especially when I am outdoors with a nice cup of spiked hot cider or around a bonfire with s'mores. I am eyeing this red cashmere argyle from LL Bean. I can also wear it to ROCK THE RED.
Fall decor - I love the earth tones that fill my home, so of course I love everything my favorite stores bring out for sale in the fall. My favorite so far is Pottery Barn, with their Panna Cream collection and the velvet linen pillows. I can get the pillow in Tuscan Red and ROCK THE RED.
Fall leaves - This is what our yard will look like in a few weeks. And Dave will look just as tired (and lost amongst the piles).
Now that I read back on those things that make me happy, I realize something... most have to do with spending money. Uh-oh, there goes my budget! (yes, I really have one.)
