An ode to fall

Ok maybe not really an ode cause who has time for that lyrical crap anyways. It just sounded better than to say I miss fall. Or what I think of as fall.


The move to Florida meant the lost of drastic seasons. The day before we moved it snowed 8 inches. You know what you don’t have to do in Florida? Shovel sunshine! When we told everyone we were moving and even when we got down here everyone kept saying “you will so miss snow”! No, I can promise that I will not miss snow. Should I ever feel nostalgic for frozen water I will go get a snow cone, or better yet, book a flight to somewhere with snow. Let someone else take care of it and then come back home to sunshine.

What I do miss right now is fall. It was, and still is, my favorite of all seasons. You get all the greatness of it being just cool enough while not actually needing a jacket. You also get that distinct change of season. I will miss the hoodies, and the sweaters, and the cute boots. I LOVE fall outfits. The idea of cuddling up with some hot cider or cocoa. Heaven.


Now, I’m having to start wrapping my head around fall here in Florida. Fall here means amazing weather but it is more like spring. Yesterday, it was 80 degrees, and I’m seeing friends back home in sweaters. Time to learn what fall can be here. Time to create new transitions and learn the fun things to do for fall in Florida!Β 838b643eeabaafabda0e98f09b7d6eff

Maybe this weekend we will go get a pumpkin and some fall staples. Decorate for halloween a bit and see if we can get into the spirit!

  1. Ahhhh Fall-my favorite season. I hate that is only last about 2 weeks her in MD…soon we will be in down coats and scarves 😦

    Lucky you in Florida. I was just talking to my co-worker on our walk that I could totally live in Florida….I would miss the cool crisp nights of fall but I would take the sun and the beach any day…well I say that because I am not in Florida….but I think I would really like it.

    Do you like it down there?

    1. I totally miss my MD falls! Find and have an apple cider doughnut for me! I’m loving the ability to train through the winter and the lack of needing a jacket

      1. Apple Cider doughnut……where oh where could that be?

        i was in Miami in the summer and the humidity was harsh for sure…I could see enjoying training year round with no layers!

      2. It is worth the trip! It is an awesome place with lots of family activities this time of year

  2. I totally understand that! When I moved to TX from the north in 2009 everyone was telling me I would miss the snow. Nope, still hasn’t happened! But I do miss the fall colors! It has still been warm here (70s-90s) and that still feels strange at the end of October.
    Glad to have found you through the Blog Hop!

  3. I would not miss winter one bit but I would definitely miss fall. Like you mentioned, the warm drinks, sweaters, falling leaves, etc. I hope you were able to get a pumpkin and find some ways to incorporate the season into your new home πŸ™‚
