I guess you could call today a basic October weather kind of day. We’ve got 40-degree weather and I’m bundled up in a throw blanket. I thought today would be the appropriate day to the Falling For Fall Tag. Ashleigh was kind enough to tag me, you can read her post here: https://ashleighbekkah.wordpress.com/2017/10/22/falling-for-fall-tag/
Let’s get started.
What is your favorite fall scent?
I have to agree with Ashleigh on this one, anything Cinnamon scented. I don’t think Apple is exclusively a fall scent, but I like Apple and Apple Pie scented things.
Do you prefer apple stuff or pumpkin stuff?
I’m not a fan of pumpkin, never have been. I like pumpkin seeds and that’s about it. But I will admit that I’ve had my fair share of PSLs.
What is the one thing that you look forward to every single fall?
I’m a really big nature lover. I don’t get the chance to get out much, but I love to watch the seasons change. We just moved to Ohio, but I grew up in West Virgina. It’s still considered a tri-state area and there’s always fairs and festivals this time of year. Fayette County, West Virginia, has Bridge Day every year. It was just last week. It’s a one-day festival with food and extreme sports. But the view is so gorgeous.
How do you like to spend the more chilly/cloudy days in fall?
It depends on if I have to go somewhere. If I have to go out, then I try to get my errands done as quickly as possible. When I’m out in the cold, I start to get really achy and my Fibromyalgia and Arthritis will flare up. And I feel like I’m moving in slow motion. If I can stay home, you’ll find me bundled up with a hot drink in my hands. And I’m either watching something on Netflix or Amazon Video.
Which do you prefer: Halloween or Thanksgiving?
I actually don’t celebrate holidays. But if I had to pick one, I would choose Thanksgiving. When my grandmother was alive she would go all out with the food and drinks. Our family was important to her and spending time together was just as important.
What is the one way you embrace the fall season?
Switching my summer clothes out for my winter clothes. This week I’m actually working on my bedroom decor. I’m not trying to make it fall related, but a more muted tone for the winter time. What I had before was just too bright for the season.
What photos would you like to take this fall?
I would love to take some pictures of the leaves before they all completely change and fall off. We’ve got a really pretty garden in the back of our apartment so hopefully, I can get back there and take some photos.
Favorite childhood memory from this season?
The house we moved from had a tree in the front yard. When I was little I would go sit underneath it. In the movies, you always see people gathering up leaves into a pile and jumping or falling into it. I did that one time and almost broke my butt, it’s not as much fun as it looks.
What is your favorite trend (fashion, makeup, etc) so far this season?
Fashion: Red, 70’s Plaid, and Mid-Length Skirts
Makeup: I’m still learning about makeup, to be honest. I like neutral colors and natural makeup but that’s all the time.
Describe what the fall weather really looks like where you live?
The temperature has been up and down recently. Last week it was in the 70’s but currently, it’s in the 40’s. It’s been sprinkling today, but it hasn’t rained that much. The weather is usually mild, but I’ve heard that we may have a bad winter.
