Char's Fave Parts of Fall
I'm a shoe fanatic. I've mentioned this before but to put this into perspective, I stopped counting how many pairs of shoes I own after 30.
I specifically love boots. Tall, short, wedges. All of them. My birthday is in December and the start of Fall makes me giddy because I know it's getting closer.
Watching the leaves turn golden is simply beautiful. The season has a sense of magic, of togetherness that is missing during the earlier months. The morning air is filled with a crispness and crunch from leaves on the pavement. One of my friends T, loves Fall just as much as I do. We met through work...aren't work friends the best?
My favorite memories are going shopping with her after work while sipping a Mcdonald's latte. T showed me how a comfy scarf will complement a Fall outfit, we would browse Urban Outfitters and Aldo for hours. On one trip I bought a pair of knee-high suede boots and a gold/burgundy purse which I still have. Latte's, a great friend, and suede boots. What more do you need? The chill of the weather gave us an excuse for a warm latte and a stroll through the mall. My faves are below. What are some of yours? How do you feel about Fall?

The sense of togetherness
As you see my faves have no mention of pumpkin or pumpkin-related activities. I loathe pumpkin. The smell, and taste make me nauseous. I love coffee and the thought of pumpkin-spiced anything near my cup angers me. Why would I want pumpkin in my coffee?
Or my Mac n cheese? I am not making this up. There is boxed pumpkin-flavored macaroni and cheese in grocery stores. To purchase. 🤢 Have we given up? I don't see how that would be appealing. Pasta and cheese don't need pumpkin (of all ingredients) to make it better.
I grew up in Oklahoma, and yes I have been to a pumpkin patch. More than once. I don't see a point in it... usually, there is extra entertainment such as a live band or food and drinks available. "Let's spend the night walking around staring at pumpkins" is not entertaining to me. Let's go to a restaurant. We can listen to music on the way. I swear it will be more fun. Or let's go to the zoo. Giraffes and elephants are way cuter than a field of pumpkins.
The only food enemy I have. ^
If anything apples should be the #1 obsession for Fall. We can get rid of all things pumpkin and add more items with apples….and maybe a dash of cinnamon. It IS Fall...we all could use a dash of something special.
