Friday Faves: I Love Fall

I freakin’ love fall. I actually don’t think I can communicate in coherent sentences how I feel about the season. It gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling in the pit of my stomach just thinking of the crisp air, the cozy sweaters, whip cream melting into mug of hot chocolate….I think I might have just wet myself.

8 Reasons I’m Happy Summer is Over

I spent all my cold winter nights dreaming of beaches and sunshine and getting a tan at the end of summer. Then summer came and I was happy (minus a few sunburns and one month-long humidity frizzfest. Then summer came even harder -- 95 degrees harder -- and I was ready for fall. I want to accessorize with scarves and see my college friends and order pumpkin spice lattes.
