New York is beautiful at all times of the year but in the Fall there’s a crispness in the air. You can still do activities outdoors, dine al fresco, take long walks and window shop with your sweetheart without passing out from heat stroke. I can finally wear my chunky cable knit sweaters that smell of fresh laundry and fabric softeners. There’s a feeling of leisure to Fall that doesn’t exist in the chaos of Summer here. In this season there’s no pressure to pack everything into a weekend.
And as for indoor activities, there are choices, from entertaining, dinner parties, baking cakes, and pies with the last of the seasonal harvest. And the most popular of flavors in everything from coffee to lotion, pumpkin spice (personally I don’t get it but I think I’m the only one). It’s a season for cuddling on the couch wrapped in a throw and jumping into piles of crispy brightly colored leaves. What is there not to love and treasure?
Do you have a time of year that you treasure? I’d love to hear about your treasured moments of the year. Tell me about it in the comments below.
Until our next rendezvous …
