Most people would agree that one of the best perks of living in the Midwest is the change of seasons.

Sure, winters get COLD and summers get HOT and HUMID here, but each season has its own set of things that make it special. I may love snowy nights lounging by the fireplace in the winter or seeing new life emerge in the spring, but at the end of the day, I love fall most of all.


5 Big Reasons to Love Fall

So why do so many people love Fall? Is it just because of the beautiful colors, or is it way more than that? Here are five reasons I think everyone falls in love with fall;

  1. The kaleidoscope of colors...obviously.
  2. The return of sweater (and hoodie) weather.
  3. Apple and pumpkin picking fun.
  4. Football
  5. Pumpkin Spice Lattes

Fall doesn't officially begin for over a week, but the opening act has already begun, so now is the perfect time to start adding all the fall fun to your social calendar!
