Hello Fall!

Today is the first day of Fall!

Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons because they give you something to look forward to.  

During Spring, the warmer air and blooming flowers remind us that 

backyard cookouts, the smell of sunscreen (my favorite smell), and
many days on the boat are ahead of us!

Fall tells us that it’s time to get ready for the winter

holidays, warm peacoats, and (for 

us here in the South), maybe even an inch of two of snow!

Here in Charleston, we’ve been dealing with 100 degree weather since June and I’m so excited that some cooler weather is going to relieve us!

Here are some reasons why I’m so excited to see Fall come:

1. Halloween

2. The Miss SC USA 2011 Pageant

 This pageant takes place here in Charleston during November. I was a competitor last year, but I’m not competing this year. I’ll definitely be there to watch, though! Can’t wait for that.

3. Vests and Boots

4. The smell of leaves burning

This smell is comforting to me because Dad used to burn leaves every Saturday during Fall. (He still does, actually.)  We live in a rural area and have a five acre yard (that sits in the middle of two huge sod fields), so there are a LOT of leaves to burn! I guess I love the smell so much because it reminds me of home.

5. Hiking trips to see the leaves change

Brandon and I went a few times last year because he was still living in Clemson and was so close to the mountains.  We had so much fun and I hope to make another trip soon.


6. The Clemson/Carolina Game

Are all of you happy to see Fall arrive?
