When I was little, I took the change in seasons very seriously. In fact, every reason to celebrate was a very big deal. I can remember hanging all my red, white, and blue outfits in the front of my closet around the fourth of July. One distinct memory stands out that’s downright embarrassing – when I was maybe 7, I remember putting on a sweater and sitting in the back yard holding a pumpkin even though it was 80 degrees. I thought that if I acted like it was fall, then the cool weather would just happen.
Fast forward to age twenty six and I’m really not all that different. On September 1st, I lit my fall scented candles as an offering to the fall Gods. I’m still waiting for them to adjust the temperature accordingly. I haven’t been brave enough to step outside long enough to check the mail. But that won’t stop me!
I was feeling all the seasonal feels while scrolling through Instagram the other day and asked a question on my stories – what super basic thing do you do to get in the spirit for Autumn? I was thinking about all the standard things, like pumpkin spice lattes, etc. But the answers totally flooded my stories and DMs. Some were actually pretty creative! I’m making it a point to cross as many as I can off the list, and hopefully create some more traditions with Annie B through the years.
*I put all the things I’ve already done in BOLD!
