Yay, Fall is Here … Kinda

As you probably know I grew up back east, but what you probably don’t know is that I absolutely LOVE autumn. I love seeing the leaves turn beautiful shades of yellow, orange and red. I love that exquisite can’t-quite-put-my-finger-on-it scent that fills the air, which is crisp and cool and a nice contrast to the subtle warmth of the sun. I love breaking out my turtlenecks, wool sweaters and jackets. I love that with fall comes football season and tailgating. I love getting the season’s first snowfall. Of the four seasons it is by far my favorite.

Obviously living in Orange County many of these things don’t occur. We may only have two seasons, as a lot of people like to say … summer and not summer. However, it doesn’t take away from the best part of experiencing all four seasons as they do in other parts of the country. In my opinion, the best part of the seasons changing is the anticipation of the change regardless if it is traditional or not. And in my case, wearing a whole different wardrobe. I’m a sucker for any kind of black turtleneck sweater.

I’m totally digging the cooler weather we’re experiencing this week. While we don’t have trees bursting with vibrant colors and it’s not quite turtleneck sweater weather yet it is light sweater weather and ┬áthe air is crisp and cool. I can live with that.

So, OC Metbloggers, what is your favorite season? Do you share my affinity for black turtleneck sweaters?

    Heat, heat and more heat. The only time cold weather is acceptable is if there’s snow on the ground. That being said, I do love winter-wear. it can be fun. But I hate cold.
