First Shadows of Fall

Shortened days, comfy sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, marching band field shows- these are the signs of fall. Southern California is known for really having only two seasons: a short, 2-3 month rainy season and the mild, dry rest of the year. And while that’s true, the massive Liquidambar in my front yard has started to change colors and drop its leaves in anticipation of the coming winter. It is indeed fall.

I was really happy this week after several weeks of heat, to finally start wearing the few sweaters in my wardrobe. It has been nice to actually need a blanket and to not have to blast the a/c. The cloudy mornings have been perfect for pumpkin spice lattes and hot chocolate. And fall decorations! I love fall decor: pumpkins, leaves, many candles casting their soft glow as the days grow shorter.

Today I celebrated the autumn equinox by finally wearing a sweater that’s lived in my closet for the past couple months, tags still on in hopes that cooler weather will come and decorating the house for the season. I’m looking forward to the marching band season, cheering my kid’s group on at champs, school activities, and the fall holidays. So here’s to this equinox as it takes us closer to the end of 2017. May your cooler days be filled with warmth and lots of pumpkin spice.

  1. I’m no longer positive where you’re getting your information, but great topic. I must spend some time finding out more or figuring out more. Thanks for magnificent info I used to be on the lookout for this info for my mission.


    1. Most of my info is either common or experience-based. I do some interviewing depending on the article, and online research for stats (specific info will be cited). My focus is the San Gabriel Valley and family life- narrow enough to have a niche or a theme, but broad enough so that I can write almost anything. Good luck setting up your site.
