Since that's not an option, instead I'm looking on the bright side and reminding myself what I love about autumn.
Rainy grays aside, here are five of my favorite things about fall:
A color riot of golds, oranges and reds over head, the way they crunch underfoot, and that lovely earthy smell...I can't get enough autumn leaves, both outdoors and in.
Wearing Fall Colors
Whether they echo those bright yellow leaves, the pumpkins on my doorstep or the season's more subdued shades, I love wrapping up in autumn's best hues.
As the days grow shorter and the evenings darker, the flickering glow of candles brightens my outlook.
Warm hearty soups and savory squashes make cooking at home much more appealing than going out. Which ties in nicely with my most favorite thing about fall...
It may be pouring down rain, but who cares if you're curled up inside with a terrific book? Add a cozy chair, a warm blanket and cracking fire and who would ever want to leave the house?
Rain or shine, I hope you're loving this gorgeous season!
