Autumn

What’s not to love? The perfect 65-degree weather (sweater weather), leggings with skirts/dresses, boots, cardigans, and scarves are staples in my wardrobe.

Clothing aside, I love Halloween and Thanksgiving.

With Halloween comes pumpkin carving, classic movies like Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown, costume parties, candy, widespread acceptance of pairing greens, purples and oranges…

With Thanksgiving comes a vegan version of our family stuffing recipe, mashed potatoes galore (with sage gravy!), roasted root vegetables, squash soup, savory tofu, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie (pumpkin everything!), and time with family. One of my favorite things about living where I live is the trees changing colors. It’s just so much more inviting seeing warm hues of reds, yellows, oranges, and golds.Β 

I love warm apple cider, pumpkin spiced lattes, cozy bonfires, hayrides, trick-or-treating and apple fests. Fall just makes me incredibly happy. The apple crisp I just made? Yeah, it’s gonna be instant gratification.
