less than one month to pumpkin spice lattes

you know how in gilmore girls, lorelei is OBSESSED with snow? and winter? and she goes around screaming about how such and such is "winter's gift" to her?

that's how i am with fall. don't get me wrong, i can go crazy for some snow. but fall just GETS me. i can be outside for more than ten minutes without complaining, i can wear pretty much whatever i want and not be uncomfortable one way or the other, i get to eat nonstop candy and basically blame it on halloween, pumpkiny things are EVERYWHERE, and cute things like corn mazes and haunted houses open up all over the place.

last week, austin and i bought pumpkin and apple scented car fresheners for our cars. SO exciting. in 2009, austin asked me on our first date in the fall (and yes, i did call a fellow gilmore girls obsessed friend and scream "this is fall's gift to me!"), so we get to celebrate our anniversary right in the thick of all of the fun fall-themed activities. one year we went to howl-o-scream, one year we went to our favorite corn maze, and who knows what we'll do this year (i can't lie, i'm hoping for both..)? and that's not all i have to look forward to. renegade chicago is in early september, which means a weekend with two of my favorite girls, and then it's basically 3 months of straight holiday celebrating. it's hard not to love this time of year.

i remembered last week that pumpkin spice lattes come back on september 9th every year, which, even though it's usually still warm outside here in southern virginia, means IT'S FALL to me. ;) i've already started layering, and i can't wait to go layering crazy in the next few months. this is some inspiration i've been hoarding recently:

this was probably a pretty dramatic outpouring of excitement, but eep! i can't wait for summer to be over. i just don't have the attachment to it like i do the other 3 seasons of the year. :) <3
