My admiration for Autumn is more than the just apple scents, cozy fashion, and pumpkin coffee. It is my favorite season because of the memories that come along with it. Fall is when my fiancé and I began dating six years ago. It’s when I started reading Harry Potter and fell in love with the magic. It also brings back the feeling of being totally relaxed with the screen door open and a candle burning for the first time. Throughout the year when I crave the feeling of fall, this is what I’m usually envisioning.
While I have so many fond Autumn memories, there is one that I will always treasure. In October 2012, my niece Lilly had recently turned 1 and just started walking. I went to visit for the weekend and as soon as I saw her, she ran up to me for the first time and gave me the biggest hug. That little voluntary act was filled with so much love and I’ve always held it close to my heart. We spent the rest of that weekend playing in the leaves and going to a pumpkin patch.
Fall certainly is my favorite time of year to burn candles but it’s also so much more than that. I can’t wait to get married next month just to have one more reason to love this season!
