Autumn Leaves on My Mind

November 13, 2015

Ever since the leaves starting changing way back in the very beginning of October, all I’ve done is rave about how much I love autumn. And how could I not? Not only are the leaves beautiful to look at but they’re especially fun to step on and crunch once they’ve fallen off the trees. Do you y’all do this too or am I the only childish one around here?

But now that we’re almost halfway through November, I’ve started to recognize the early signs of winter. The temperatures are beginning to creep lower and lower, the sun is setting before I even leave work, and, worst of all, most of the trees are completely bare without a red or gold leaf in sight. But instead of excepting that the first snowfall will probably happen within the next few weeks, I’ve decided instead that I’m going  to live in a total state of denial and pretend like autumn is still in full swing… Not entirely healthy but trying to get excited for winter  is asking a lot of a girl who grew up in Florida!

Are you guys looking forward to winter or are you like me and still hung up on autumn?

      I wish that I could get as excited for winter as you do!! I’m not a huge chocolate fan so maybe that’s one reason why…

      Thank you so much, Sabina!

  • Oh I’m still hung up on Autumn just like you! It love the idea of winter, Christmas, cosy sweaters and hot drinks. I absolutely look forward to all of that! But I just detest the complexities snow tends to bring with it and the extreme cold. (Although I have to admit I tend to find it too hot in Summer, so.)

    • Courtney

      That’s exactly how I am about winter!! I’m obviously excited for the holidays but not quite as excited for when I’ll have to drive to work when it’s snowing!

  • These leaves are just absolutely beautiful. What I love about fall is that even if it is gloomy outside, the beautiful fall colors in the leaves brings sunshine to the day.

      That is so true! Even when it’s gray and rainy, the leaves somehow manage to brighten up my day!

  • I’m just like you! I love summer and can’t accept when winter it’s just around the corner!

      I can’t believe how quickly summer went by and now autumn’s almost over too!

  • I love autumn and I want it to stay forever 😀 😀

      Me too!!

  • So beautiful… I’m still waiting for the leaves to turn colors here in Southern France… xx

    • Courtney

      That’s so crazy that the leaves haven’t started changing where you live yet! Although Southern France is beautiful anyway!

  • We don’t have proper autumn, just a few yellow leaves and dry wind and it’s suddenly winter. So I’m a winter lover because it’s the most beautiful time of the year(no snow tho)

    • Courtney

      I grew up in Florida so we used to have the same kind of winters! I did love that time of year when I was younger because it meant that it wasn’t quite as hot outside!

  • Dee

    Autumn leaves look absolutely gorgeous! I sure wish we had autumn in Singapore!

    • Courtney

      Autumn is the absolute best! I wish that it would last longer!

  • Lovely, lovely autumn pics!!!!!!! Here we’ve come into winter and everything outside is colourless for months and months ahead. I’m so jealous of people who get to see colours!!!
