As a West Coast girl, I never understood why people loved fall; it seemed like every other season. But one day when I was on a road trip, we were driving through the mountains of Virginia when I finally understood the beauty and inspiration of fall. Here are 30+ quotes about fall and quotes about autumn to inspire you in this pumpkin spice season.
30 Quotes About Fall and Autumn | Inspirational Fall Quotes
While we were driving, I looked out over the mountains (Virginia must be where they got the phrase “purple mountain’s majesty”) and clusters of beautiful red, gold, and orange trees, and I understood why people love fall. I can see a little bit of fall starting to peek through in the trees each day. First, here are some of my favorite things about fall:
👉 Products We Recommend:
1. Salted caramel mochas at Starbucks
These are really good. There’s also pumpkin spice lattes if you’re a fan of pumpkin. Ooh, also their hot apple cider is really good!
2. Pretty orange pumpkins
Every time I go grocery shopping I see a mountain of little orange pumpkins at the front of the store and I’m tempted to get one just because it’s pretty and looks like fall, even though I know I won’t have any trick-or-treaters for Halloween. Pumpkins make pretty, cheerful decorations.
3. State fairs
Ahh, state fairs are the best. Mostly for eating everything. I went to the state fair a few years ago and ate everything from deep fried Kool-aid to deep fried Reese’s Cups. Basically just deep fried everything.
4. Leaves turning colors
I love watching the trees change colors as fall goes on and the months pass by. Orange, red, and yellow. Beautiful colors everywhere.
Even though people would probably hide their children if I tried to go trick-or-treating at this age, I still like the spirit of Halloween. Sometimes I dress up and every year I definitely eat all the candy. (This whole list is basically about food).
I like Thanksgiving mostly for the food. Oh, I mean spending time with my family and loved ones. And definitely making stuffing with several sticks of butter. There’s that too.
I hope this list makes you smile a little about what you have to look forward to in the upcoming months.
