The Problem with Autumn...

Saturday, October 11, 2014 that you can't say cheesy things like "Fall is Falling!"

Whatever you call it, that season is well upon us. Even if all of the shops are trying to convince us it's actually Christmastime.

The states aren't that much better, but we do have the unwritten rule that it's not technically the Christmas season until you see Santa waving at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade on the television and you're done unbuttoning your pants (trousers!!) post-Thanksgiving meal.

Back home, fall consists of a new school year, bonfires, Halloween, fun things like Austin City Limits Music Festival, slightly below sweltering temperatures, and most importantly: football.

I do miss the spirit of college football season. Waking up early to watch College Gameday, tailgating for hours, fans yelling obscenities at each other. Even if my team isn't doing so hot this year, our coach still is

Fall over here means Autumn and Autumn of my feet because I'm enthralled by leaves being colors other than green or brown.

Chic white jeans? Nope just my legs. 
Another day in my wellies, another string of people commenting about it.

^^^^^ Apparently I have a thing for black and purple.

Lots of people love Faltumn (just go with it okay?), so much so that it's comes with a bit of a stigma... I take pictures of my feet with leaves and I don't care who knows it!!!!!!! But in my defense, I don't drink Pumpkin Spice Lattes.

I can't wait to see what my first Autumn has in store for me here in England, even if it means less sun and chillier temps. Curling up in bed with a cup of tea, a packet of biscuits, and Downton Abbey on my screen sounds perfectly fine with me. I'm also looking forward to seeing what Halloween is like!

What's your favorite part about Fall/Autumn? If you say something from that Buzzfeed article, I won't judge you, don't be shy....
