Easily Falling into Fall–New York, NY

The only thing that makes the end of summer bearable is that it ushers in crisp air and changing leaves.  Today is one of those perfect early fall days–sunny and in the mid-60’s–which leads me to…

My favorite things about fall:
-Watching the foliage colors deepen week by week in Central Park
-Kicking off the soccer season (age 5-college)
-Drinking the first tall skim chai that I order at Starbucks in honor of the seasonal change
-Busting out my fall wardrobe (not the most stylish but cozy nonetheless–consisting mostly of Patagonia fleece, J. Crew blazers, and cute flats)
-Walking through a field of pumpkins
-Photographing family portrait sessions for holiday cards
-Gorging on cider doughnuts…preferably from Atkins Farms…does it get any better?
-Shooting Fall weddings (consistently gorgeous)
-Tailgating at football games…best when it’s “the biggest little game in America.”
-Having our neighborhood back–most tourists have left until the Thanksgiving balloons appear
-Cheering for the Red Sox in the baseball postseason(sadly not this year, 20 games back doesn’t even leave us a wild card hope)
-Cheering against the Yankees in the postseason
-Enjoying the perfect weather

Happy 3rd day of Fall!
