Although I've loved living in Southern California my whole life (especially the part of that where I moved to the beach), the one thing that I've always been envious of, is Fall. I mean a real Fall. Complete with turning leaves, crisp weather, and warm sweaters. If this year is anything like last year, it'll be Halloween and 85 degrees outside at 9 pm :).
I mean just look at that photo! Who wouldn't want that? I guess it's true that we all think the grass is greener on the other side. When my friends on the East Coast are freezing during November, I'm complaining because its 55 degrees outside. Ah, the give and take of it all.
I still try to bring a little bit of Fall to us, here by the beach. We put out Fall decorations, indulge in squash dishes (because YUM!), and sometimes drink hot cocoa even though it's not quite cold enough. I've never been a big PSL person, but give me cocoa and the world is perfect.
Is there anything that you love about Fall? Something you do every year that makes it official?
