fall is by far my favorite season... i look forward to that moment each year when i first feel a brisk crispness in the air, inviting me to pull my sweaters out of storage.
other things i look forward to:
1. incorporating this food into my diet-
oatmeal, smoothies*, ravioli, bread, cookies... i could go on and on. it's a superfood so don't be shy!
2. buying new sweaters-
i just received this purchase and i love the unique back details.
3. impending holidays! i look forward to thanksgiving and christmas all year: spending time with my family and eating tasty food by a fire... it doesn't get much better.
4. riding boots. i find myself wearing them everyday. with leggings and a cozy sweater dress, it's the perfect fall ensemble.
if price was no object, these loeffler randall boots would live on my feet:
5. holiday parties. i love an excuse to get gussied up and wear sequins!
what's your favorite fall festivity?
*i drank a pumpkin smoothie post-run this morning and it was absolutely delicious!

1/3 cup greek yogurt (i prefer fage)
1/2 cup frozen banana slices
cinnamon and/or pumpkin pie spice to taste
