Fall is happening right outside my window. As soon as it got a little cold outside, my mom busted out the fall decor and our house smelled like pumpkin pie everyday. Fall is my favorite season and Halloween is my favorite holiday. Shocking. I know. I wish I could live in the fall forever. It’s not too cold, the smell of leaves. Every thing about that is so comforting to me. It may be raining but it’s the perfect weather to just cuddle up on the couch with a blanket and watch Halloween movies. It’s funny because I love this time of year but Alex couldn’t care less about Halloween. He’s such a good sport though because he dresses up in all of my crazy Halloween costume ideas and watches all of my corny movies with me. I mean I really couldn’t escape my love of fall because who my mother is. I mean she loves this time of year. I grew up around this love for the fall and Halloween. From today until Christmas she’s in heaven. Then in January she can’t wait for it all to be over. I can’t blame her. I’m the same way. The winter season feels like it lasts an eternity. I was just telling Alex the other day that an ideal world we would just have the beginning of each season. I mean by the middle of each season we all get sick of it and can’t wait to get the next season. Right now though, I’m perfectly happy with this fall weather even though it is raining. I’m perfectly happy just sitting inside on the couch and watching Practical Magic with my mim and waiting for Alex to come home. I cannot wait until I have my own house and can decorate it with pumpkins, witches, and ghosts. Alex is gonna hate it but in time he’ll learn to love it and love Halloween. I just know it. He’ll break down eventually and love it as much as I do.
