It's Never Too Late to Jump into the Game!!


Hey All! So I know I'm late to the game on this one, but one of my new favoritist bloggers,  Heather22 from Simply Living, has inspired me to take part in November's Day of Thanks series. It really is a great way to hold oneself to blogging. Yeah, its November 11th, so what, I'm still doing it lol. So in honor of the past 10 days I missed out on, I'll spice up Day 10 with an extra kick of sweetness. 

DAY 11: FALL
Dear Fall,

I Love You,

Reese

 Where to start?
Up until this year I always considered myself a Fall baby, that is until a special someone, cough..cough..Vincent, ruined my happiness and informed me that September 7th is still summer. Clearly, he's out of his mind though, so I'll write that off as irrelevant. From the change of colors to Halloween and Thanksgiving, Fall has given me some of the absolute dearest memories. I like to kickstart the season with Pumpkin Spice Lattes from good ole Starbucks. Oh Starbucks, you never do me dirty. The best color palettes are fall palettes: dark purples, navy, maroons, creams, oh yes, the list goes on. Don't get me wrong, pank (pink) is my favorite nailpolish color but tis the season to change it up and once I get these nails of mine to grow out some more, guess who'll be taking full advantage of the seasons newest shades?
Some other fab fall fashion lusts include coats and boots. I love a new winter coat, boots and matching purse like I love my Mama.  This Tommy Hilfiger ad makes me wish I had the salary to support my dreamworld bc I'd buy it all! Damn self supporting college student...
Food. Can't live with it, can't live without it. Run everyday, oh I will, but I sure will not pass up a candy apple or pumkin pie or Thanksgiving turkey. Nope, sure wont, so let's just bet on me gaining 10 lbs; Holiday weight for sure. There are soo many recipes I'm itching to try out, Pumpkin Cream Cheese brownies, sweet potato and apple pies oh my! Reminiscing on memories with Mommy cooking Thanksgiving dinner, I remember getting down in the kitchen like nobody's business;  my once a year treat to my family; they say I'm selfish, I say I cook, what more do you want (joke of course)?  
Good Friends. Yeah, this could really apply to any season but ever notice how the last few months of the year just bring people together in ways Spring and Summer just can't compare to? People get nicer, humbler, more giving and lol more thankful. Those who've  pissed us off previously even sometimes get an occasional smile. I love Fall because it brings folks together and makes 'um appreciative of the little things (well, most people, we have to throw in the occasional Grump) and I'll tip my hat to plain old happiness anyday. Yep. I wish you could stay forever Fall.
 I love you.
