Fall. Autumn. The season of pumpkin spice and knitted throws. Unnecessary Target runs. Crisp air. Apple pie candles.
Basically, it’s when we lose our mother-loving MINDS over a season’s arrival (Christmas soon to follow).
What is it about fall? The season strikes and we must, WE MUST, consume something pumpkin. We must lower our AC and replace all home décor with something orange. We’re whisked into a frenzy, caught in the eye of the tornado, surrounded by swirling leaves and frothy spiced lattes. We’re floating. Our fir-trimmed UGGs hover above ground. Nothing else exists except fall.
With what? You may ask. Is it the crisp fall leaves? Pumpkin spice? The rich fall colors you stubbornly wear year-round?
I fall in love with Pinterest. Pinterest is the social media equivalent to that ex who’s all bad for you, a waste of time, but every now and then, they show you attention or give you an amazingly thoughtful gift, so you think maybe they do care, maybe we can make this work, and you’re never free from their spell.
