For a while, we were pretty unsure whether or not fall was actually going to happen for us in the district, but finally, the weather is cooling down and we’re able to bust out cozy flannels and boots and watch as the leaves change colors. Fall has so many wonderful things to offer so we asked our team what their favorite things about this season are!

I love football, the mild temperatures, and the colors of the leaves as they change. I love soft socks and warm blankets, cuddling with my new puppy who is just learning what colder weather feels like and is continually confused when he steps out the door, and spending time with friends and family.



My favorite things about fall is the brisk weather, cozy scarves and blankets, fall scents and the first snow!



Hot drinks & comfort food! ?

How cute are these customized glasses? Made by our very own Sara!

Ugh! NOT pumpkin spice everything! ?

Summer is my jam, I have no idea why people love fall, I think this is an excellent question! ? But if I must…I love Thanksgiving. I find it to be a fun, more relaxed start to the stressful holiday season. I like reusing our Halloween pumpkins for decor. I like my kids bringing in acorns and sticks and leaves and wanting to “decorate” the table. I LOVE turkeys made out of drawing your hand! I like everyone laying around after eating and watching a movie and napping and days that last all day and into the night and through multiple meals. Those are my favorite kind of days.

Ha, Tracy! I definitely agree with you – I love summer because I don’t have to worry about layering on as much!

But I do love fall because the changing of the leaves and being able to be outside without breaking out in a sweat. I’m not a huge pumpkin flavored type of person, but I love being able to try warmer foods like warm apple pies, hot tea/cider, etc.

I won’t lie and you can call me basic, but I love the holiday drinks at Starbucks! Peppermint mochas are where it’s at! I like getting to see all the leaves change colors on the UMD campus. I also love getting to wear cozy flannels and big sweaters. I am all about sweater weather!
