Fall is absolutely my favorite season. As a kid growing up in Florida I had such a romanticized idea about how starting a new school year would be even more exciting with the changing of the leaves and shorter days (I imagined the girls in my Babysitters Club books had it totally made with these great picturesque, leaf-crunching October walks to school), and crisp Halloween evenings (not ones where you needed to worry about a costume you wouldn’t sweat in and the attraction of misquitos or melting of your candy!), and so many other great fall attributes. When I moved 5 years ago to a climate that actually has seasons, it was great to know that all of my childhood fantasies about fall were so true. Yet it made me a little jealous that I’d missed this for so long! This is when I remind myself that most people would kill to live 5 minutes from our awesome Sarasota beaches, so I can’t complain! 🙂
So here are some random pictures from my fall adventures – including the full array of photos from the 3rd annual Fall Dessert Party. Enjoy!
