I used to despise fall. All it was, was the gateway to my least favorite part of the year, winter. I don't despise winter because of the weather. I despise winter because of the lack of sun. The long days of summer are where it's at for me. The short days of winter, being holed up in your house for far too long, just never appealed to me.

When I became a mom, fall became different. Fall became fun. There are so many fall activities that are fun to do with kids, going to the pumpkin patch, apple picking, halloween. Not to mention playing in all those falling leaves. Fall quickly became one of my favorites.

This year, it has taken all the way until December for the leaves to fall from the trees…our neighborhood is older and has tons of trees, so is covered in leaves right now and I kind of love it. I personally think it is because of the drought, but who knows. All I know is that fall has pushed right into the Christmas season this year. It feels kind of weird to watch the leaves fall from the trees at the same time as seeing all the Christmas lights up on houses.

I'm happy we got to play in the leaves a couple times before they become an annoying mess. Because there is nothing quite like the joy on the faces of kids frolicking in leaves…or riding their bikes through the leaf piles my neighbors so painstakingly created in the street.
