The Flavors of Fall

Autumn has always been my favorite season. The change has only just begun, but it never fails to create a feeling of excitement and awe in me. I don’t know exactly what it is about the fall. Perhaps it is because even now it seems more like the beginning of the a new year to me then January ever does. I grew up celebrating Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, in the fall, but it’s more than that. The fall means a new school year, with new things to learn. The fall means new clothes, especially the beginning of sweater weather, which I love. While the fall technically represents the dimming of life, as the leaves fade away, to me it merely represents continuation and change, because though the beauty fades it will return again next year.

I thought I would share some of my favorite things about fall with you. I love the smell of cinnamon and apples, of pumpkin pie and leaves on the ground. I love the colors and the warmth, the blue of the sky and the ever-changing leaves. Here are a few images of the beauty and flavors of fall.

Happy Fall and Happy New Year everyone! May the sweetness, warmth, and color of this season fill your life in the coming year.

  1. This is my fave season, too. I’d miss it if I lived where autumn didn’t occur. I feel more alive in autumn than in spring, maybe because spring is so short here, spiraling with sudden speed straight into summer before I am ready. Autumn lingers, cooling me down, surrounding me with vibrant color. Color improves everything. So in the coming death of the year, I feel most alive.

  2. Love the fall too, really gets gorgeous here by mid October and with my old celtic traditions from my mom’s side of the family i love a gentle, fun, farm style Halloween. I really feel at my best in the cool energy of the fall…my birthday month in October.

  3. I love the fall. I would venture to say it is my favorite season. We have experienced the hottest summer on record. Then this morning it was 78 degrees. I love Fall!
