Mixed Feelings About: Autumn

Like many of you, I have mixed feelings about the upcoming autumn season. On one hand, I get to dress up like Avatar, and on the other hand, the weather depresses me. I just can’t win.
One thing we can all agree on is that fall brings many reasons to celebrate. Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Black Friday are great holidays, and as an extra bonus, those holidays act as a runway to the most wonderful holiday of all: Tiger Woods’ birthday (December 30, 1975)!
The cool weather and the leaves on the ground have a peculiar effect on my palette; I crave spider shaped cookies ALL THE TIME! You know, a round cookie with chocolate eyes and pretzel legs. My favorite!

(Mmm, doesn't that look delicious?)
I also get hungry for soups and other heavy meals like steak and potatoes. I even made a pasta dish yesterday with hot Italian sausage, butternut squash, onions, and mushrooms (very delicious, email me for the recipe), just because I wanted something a little heavier. Will this make ME heavier? Maybe. Who knows why the cold weather drives me to completely change my eating habits?
What I love most about fall is dressing up for Halloween! Whether I’m dressing as the Bananas in Pajamas, or a 45-year-old man (nobody recognized me, they thought I was a stranger!), every Halloween is an adventure. The thrill that comes from creeping people out or by making them laugh is unbeatable. You know, there really are a lot of great reasons to enjoy this time of year.
I’ll tell you what. This Halloween, as you are crouching in the bushes ready to scare the crap out of a group of 3rd graders, take a moment to reflect on the many reasons you love autumn, and try not to let it get you down!
