Fall is here!

Don’t you just love the fall season!  Growing up in the Midwest, I do miss the beautiful changing leaves on the trees, but that aside, there are so many wonderful things about this season.  Here’s my top 5:

  1. Comfortable temperatures.  The lower heat and humidity makes bike rides, walks/jogs, etc. so much more enjoyable.  It’s a perfect time to hit the nature trails and notice all that’s changing around you.  On my jogs here in the low country, I enjoy watching the marsh grasses change from their vibrant summer green to the yellows and browns that make up their growth cycle.  The monarch butterflies are plentiful and the birds and wildlife are also more active!
  2. Seasonal produce.  After our fill of summer’s berries and melons, yellow squash and asparagus, I welcome the freshness of fruits like apples, pears, cranberries, pomegranates, and kiwis.  The seasonal vegetable seem to multiply with all the cruciferous veggies like cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, and bok choy, not to mention the classics like pumpkin, green beans, acorn and spaghetti squash, edamame, spinach, and collard greens.  Cinnamon and nutmeg are wonderful fall flavors to experiment with your fruits and veggies. 
  3. Cozy comfort.  There’s nothing like pulling out your favorite “hoodie” or soft sweater as you take a walk at sunset or attend an afternoon football game.  I love the crisp cool air on your face as your body is warm inside that favorite, comfortable sweater you’ve had for years.  Anyone with me?
  4. Warm colors of fall.  With orange tones sending vibes of energy, and yellows hope and happiness, powerful reds, and renewing greens, you cannot help to reflect on your own energy, happiness, and growth from the year so far.  It’s a time when individuals and businesses alike reflect on their successes and challenges from the year and begin plans for the year to come.  We can acknowledge the stressful moments like year-end for businesses and tax season is approaching, but don’t overlook this beautiful season with so much to offer!
  5. Family time.  Fall is often filled with family gatherings.  Halloween and Thanksgiving are fun times for festivities and traditions, which means times filled with stories, hugs, and laughter – all, shall we say, “soothing to the soul.”
