It’s finally October and in my mind that means that fall has officially started. Nevermind the fact that I started seeing Halloween stuff before Labor Day, once October rolls around I feel in the mood for fall.
I’m really not sure what my most favorite thing about fall would be. Fall makes me a bit gloomy because it means winter is coming and even though I live in the Midwest, I detest winter. I’m not sure why I didn’t attend college in California or Hawaii. Once winter hits, I’m cold all of the time!
I guess there are some things I like about fall. The leaves changing color would be a great example. As a photographer, it’s fun to capture the change in seasons here in Iowa.
I’m excited because the photography group I belong to will be heading out on a night shoot next week. We try to do one of these every year. I’m not so great a night shoots yet, but I hope that having a digital camera (aka My Fancy Pants Camera) will help me hone my skill a bit as I can see the results of my shot immediately and make adjustments as needed.
For me, the best thing about fall in Thanksgiving. My family comes to town and I cook this huge meal for everyone. I love cooking and baking. Although, as the family has gotten larger, I’ve delegated some of the easy to travel courses like desserts to other family members. Once we get into November, I’ll share some of my tried and true Thanksgiving recipes with y’all. Should be exciting! I can’t wait!
How about you? What’s your favorite thing or things about fall?
