Holy heck.  It’s really autumn.

And I went on a 5 mile run IN A LONG SLEEVED SHIRT.

You know, I am not a fall person.  Sure, I like Pumpkin Spice Lattes and warm fires and scarves.  And wearing boots!  I’m really a spring person.  Bring on the flowers and sunshine and sandals.  Fall is just that much closer to winter, which is sooo not my thing.  But this fall?  I don’t know – I just have a good feeling about it.  Something amazing is around the corner.  I can smell it in the air.  Here’s to falling up.

    I have to tell you that this post made me smile and helped change my mood after a rough day.. thanks 🙂

    Fall is actually my favorite time of year! I love the crisp weather and the changing leaves. However, it also happens to be my most difficult time of the year emotionally (I’ve been hospitalized the last two years every October and back in 2006 as well). I agree, here’s to falling up! (And hoping I can enjoy autumn from home and not a hospital!)

      Ha I just realized that I actually already broke that–I was in the hospital yesterday and today because I had to have my appendix removed. How could I forget that so soon?!

    Great attitude….because otherwise, I have the same thoughts about fall just leads to winter, which stinks. So, here’s to good stuff coming around the corner! 🙂

    It turned fall here today, too, without a doubt. For me, fall has always had that feeling of newness and possibility, but especially this year. Here’s to an amazing fall!

    Nicely said :). I love your optimism

    Just celebrated my Canadian Thanksgiving. I absolutely LOVE fall, going through our crazy winters definitely allows me to appreciate the comfort of fall 😛

  • Katie @ Talk Less, Say More October 7, 2012, 10:33 pm

    Love this! I absolutely adore fall and the cooler weather, wearing boots, the pretty trees, pumpkins and apples, and of course crunchy leaves. This year it’s extra special since it’s my first fall in 3 years after living in SoCal so I’m just soaking it all in!

    And I’m pretty sure my body hardly warmed up on my 5 mile run today…

  • Sam @ Better With Sprinkles October 7, 2012, 10:44 pm

    Definitely an uplifting post! I always feel a little apprehensive about fall…too close to winter for my liking! But this one seems to have gotten off to a good start. 🙂

    I only like Spring because that’s when my birthday is. But in Oregon basically any season except for Summer sucks because the weather is just horrible all the time.

  • Sana October 7, 2012, 10:51 pm

    🙂 Something is in the air. I feel the same way.

  • Cher @ Weddicted October 7, 2012, 11:54 pm

    I love fall because of sweater weather, boots, warm coffee, fireplaces.. all those cliche things. But, like you, I despise winter! Everything about it!

  • emma October 8, 2012, 3:52 am

    maybe you feel differently this year because you have a son now 🙂 I had a little boy 2 1/2 weeks ago and the thought of winter isn’t as bad this year 🙂

    RE: scarves. I love them, too– on other people. Every time I wear one, despite knowing how to tie them in cool ways, I feel like a stuffed animal or something. LOL

  • Natalie @ Free Range Human October 8, 2012, 7:22 am

    I love this positive post! Happy Falling Up!

  • Emily @ Perfection Isn't Happy October 8, 2012, 7:42 am

    I’m not a fall person either, but I went to the pumpkin patch this weekend and just enjoyed it :). I’m glad you’re enjoying it too :)!

  • Sarah October 8, 2012, 8:02 am

    YAY for falling love with Fall:-). I think having a baby really brightens our senses and our ability to enjoy and celebrate.

  • Laura October 8, 2012, 8:44 am

    Cute post! I always believe the fall is the beginning of great things – maybe it is that back to school feeling! I can’t wait to see which costumes you choose!

  • Nadine October 8, 2012, 9:12 am

    Fall is my favorite time of year!!

    Is this foreshadowing??? Something to be announced or just putting the positive vibes out there?

    • Caitlin October 8, 2012, 9:19 am

      i’m pregnant!!


      just kidding.

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats October 8, 2012, 11:06 am

    Hahaha you know it’s fall when you wear a long sleeved shirt running!

  • Ellen @ Wannabe Health Nut October 8, 2012, 5:12 pm

    I’d love fall a lot more right now if my favorite pair of boots weren’t just barely hanging on by a thread! I’m going to have to retire them soon, which will definitely mean chaos in the wardrobe department because they go with everything. Hmm…guess I’ll have to get a new pair. And a new scarf? Oh man, season changes always make me want to shop, but extra spending is just not in the budget right now!

  • FitBritt@MyOwnBalance October 9, 2012, 1:49 pm

    I’m more of a spring/summer person- Fall to me is a permanent Sunday- Winter or Monday is just around the corner. But this year I’m trying to embrace it by going apple picking, buying pumpkins and making healthy fall dishes. Despite the weather, enjoying a season is a state of mind!

  • Life's a Bowl October 9, 2012, 3:24 pm

    I can’t stop saying it, but I am totally falling in love with fall this year! The colors, the smells, the flavors, the activities- so pretty and fun! Except the weather in DC this past weekend, yuck!

  • Michelle October 10, 2012, 10:42 pm

    I had some serious weather (read: FALL) jealousy goin on this morning as I pulled on my shorts and tank to run this morning!
