Let’s venture off-topic a little and talk about sweater weather today, AKA autumn. Amber over at Seasons of Humility has tagged me in The Sweater Weather Tag, so let’s talk about fall!
Favorite candle scent
I’m going with a Christmas scent here: peppermint. Specifically, Yankee Candle’s North Pole scent. It just smells festive!
Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
If you’re forcing me to pick one, tea. I love it all: hot tea, iced tea (SWEET iced tea. This is the south.), lukewarm tea….I’ll take it any way I can.
What’s the best fall memory you have?
This one is tough! I’m going to go with one of my many favorites: hiking with my family a few years ago to Hawksbill Crag (AKA Whitaker Point) as the leaves were just past their peak. It was beautiful! Something I will never forget.
Best fragrance for fall
Cinnamon. I love cinnamon in anything (oatmeal, tea, ice cream, apple pie, pumpkin pie, etc.). It just smells like the season!
Favorite Thanksgiving food
Pumpkin pie!!! And, it has to have REAL whipped cream. If you’re at my Mamaw’s at Thanksgiving, you have to make your dessert plate early just to make sure my cousins don’t get all the whipped cream (you know who you are) 🙂
Most worn sweater
Hmm. Maybe my comfy brown zippered one? I tend to wear it around home all winter.
Football games or jumping in leaf piles?
Leaf piles! That’s another fall memory with family — playing in the leaves. And climbing the trees.
Skinny jeans or leggings?
Combat boots or Uggs?
Hiking/hunting boots, for sure!
Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?
Yes, but only if you REALLY like pumpkin. One or two pumpkin spices lattes a season, and I’m good. But I do love the opportunity to try and make all things pumpkin this time of year. Pumpkin pancakes, anyone?
Favorite fall TV show
This year, I’m going to have to say fall Hallmark movies.
What do you want to be for Halloween?
No idea!!! This year I’m pretty last minute with deciding because I’ll be working.
Hats or scarves?
Both!!!! Especially if they match 🙂
What’s your #1 favorite thing about fall?
Trees. Seeing them reveal their true colors is almost magical. Almost a metaphor: when your character is revealed, will you display something vibrant underneath?
That was fun!!! I’m tagging Beckie and anyone else who wants to join!
What are your favorite things about fall???? Please share in the comments.
WAY fun, Courtney. I’m a big fan of all things fall like favorite and cozy sweaters as well as hats/scarves. Love that last line too, friend. Wonderfully said. 🙂
Thank you! I hope you can join in on the tag, too, at some point. This was super fun to put together.
Yay for tea! And cinnamon. And pumpkin pie! Mmmmmm. Also, I happen to rather love your hats and scarves myself. 🙂 And what a great last line. Very thought-provoking, keep our insides as nice as our outsides. (Which isn’t always very easy to do, is it?)
Why thank you! I’m happy you agree. And yes, our insides are definitely a work in progress.
