For years I was convinced that I needed to move to a warmer area of the states because I hate cold. I am now starting to appreciate the season changes and the pretty views and have come to realize that fall would not be the same without the changing weather. I still hate the cold, but what I love fall is

sweat pants/sweat shirts

big sweaters

fuzzy socks



seasonal flavored coffees


cozy dinners
