20 Things To Treasure in Autumn

autumn in new york

I came across a wonderful list of things to love about autumn over on The Inspired Room and I couldn’t resist doing a list of my own. I like autumn (it’s my second favorite season) but I love summer and parting is always such sweet sorrow. So in the spirit of embracing the present moment, here’s my list of autumn favorites.


  1. Snuggly sweaters with my favorite jeans that are long enough to allow me my one summertime holdover, flip flops.
  2. Homemade sweet potato pie.
  3. A crackling fire in a stone fireplace.
  4. Driving north to see the leaves change.
  5. Childhood memories of family trips to Pennsylvania Dutch Country.
  6. Delicious red wine.
  7. Apple picking.
  8. An abundance of good hair days.
  9. Crisp breezes.
  10. Warm apple pie a la mode.
  11. New stationery and starting fresh.
  12. Carving pumpkins with my ducklings.
  13. Cozy socks to putter around the house.
  14. My extra fluffy down comforter.
  15. Hot chocolate with whipped cream.
  16. Halloween costumes.
  17. Leisurely walks in Central Park.
  18. Boots and blazers.
  19. Quality movie releases.
  20. Fall TV. This one is less potent as streaming services launch year round, but still, there’s nothing like network TV show premieres.
If you’re feeling so inspired, go ahead and create a list of your own. And don’t be afraid to share! Autumn is awesome!

    Hi ~ just stopping by to see your blog because I saw you used the same tutorial I did to fix mine. I love the dark gray background you’ve used – looks great.

    I don’t know where you live, but I’d like to be there if days are cool and crisp and you can start wearing sweaters and having fires in the fireplace.

    Enjoy Autumn

    Thanks! I’m glad you like it. I’m in NYC and we’re just starting to get consistently cool weather but I’m still wearing my flip flops!!

    I do miss the changing of the leaves. Wish I had that in LA!

      I know what you mean. Maybe take a weekend trip once the leaves start so you can get a little bit of Autumn!

    Fall TV is definitely going to have me living life. Hope you have a great season!
