It's the First Day of Fall and I'm in Love.

It's officially the first day of Fall! In Raleigh it's a cool and rainy day which seem appropriate for such an occasion.

Growing up I always associated fall with going back to school so I was never a real fan of the season. Also, popular fall colors are brown, orange and yellow and as a child my favorite color was purple hence I thought fall colors were drab and ugly. Plus, I've always been a summer girl. You don't meet too many people that love HOT weather but I most certainly do. I love the beach, the pool and all things summer.

Today I feel much differently about fall. I'm now a big fan of brown and orange. (I'm still on the fence about yellow. It makes me look jaundiced when I wear it.) I think I started to really fall in love with fall in 2005. You see my husband and I started dating in the fall of that year and there's just something about the smell of autumn that reminds me of our first few dates. Especially autumn evenings with the crisp air and smell of fallen leaves. It's all the little things I remember like walking to the Chinese restaurant on our first date. The first time holding cold hands. Sitting in the car talking and listening to Joseph Aurthur, not wanting to go back out into the cold night air. The shivers of excitement that come from discovering how deeply you can love someone.

I'm still a summer girl but fall will always have a special place in my heart.

aww yay. Last night when the news said today would be the first day of fall, Jerry looked at me and said, it's our season! I love fall too I think because I grew up and FL and never knew it as a kid :-)

I know exactly what you're talking about w/ fall and making it think about love. My boyfriend and I started dating a year ago, and these crisp mornings and the smell of fall on certain days has been making those first date feelings rise to the surface again. I love it. Thanks for sharing such a lovely experience with us.

Stopping by from SITS!

I know what you mean about loving summer. I do too! I love the beach, the pool, the lake anywhere it is hot! I like fall, but not as much as summer.

Hope you have some great memories this fall and make some new ones!

Hi, stopping in from CM's Blogaholics.

I always thought the summer was my favorite season but recently I realized how much I love fall. Last Sunday we were watching football as a family with the windows open and a cool breeze blowing in. It was a perfect day!
