I can finally feel the crisp chill in the air. After a beautiful month of September, the 80 degree weather rolled right into October surprisingly, especially for Pittsburgh. We’re now getting into the 60 degree weather, and I’m feeling good about this season. I’m someone who enjoys something different about each season, so when the seasons start to change, I always look forward to what’s ahead. Fall has easily become one of my favorite times of the year. I love chilly weather, wearing sweaters and boots. I enjoy the coziness of fall.
September is very special because it’s Jordan and my wedding anniversary month, and we celebrate many family birthdays this month as well. My husband lives and breathes sports, so football is a big part of our weekends during this time of year, which I love. We’ve been going to numerous Pitt Panther games, and I’m definitely growing to enjoy college football more. We had beautiful weather this September in Pittsburgh, it’s one the best months for weather where we live.
I love seeing the leaves change colors, the chill in the air, and the spookiness that comes along with October. I look forward to haunted houses, pumpkin patches, scary movies, and dressing up for Halloween.
November brings a sense of gratitude. I’d like to think that I’m always thankful for what I have, and I try to show my thankfulness to those in my life regularly. Being that Thanksgiving is in November, it really is a time where you see people giving back more, and just showing extra appreciation for those they love. Thanksgiving is a time not only to spend with family, but it’s also a time to reflect and look at how blessed you truly are. You don’t have to have much to feel blessed, it’s really looking at what you have and being thankful for that, rather than focusing on what you don’t have.
And then of course, December rolls around. This truly is my favorite time of the year, but I’ll save that for another post. I’m focusing on fall this time. Jordan and I got married this year on September 7th (blog post to come on that), and it’s funny how many people ask us if we feel any different. Not much feels different, we’re still living in the same apartment, we don’t have or aren’t expecting any children right now. It feels pretty much the same as before we were married.
The one thing that does feel different though is my outlook on our relationship. I feel more now than ever that we are a team. We were a team before, but it does truly feel different now. It’s exciting to go into a new season newly married with a fresh outlook on things. I know how truly blessed we both are, and I hope to always remember that.
I hope you all have a great fall season!
