November is officially here ya’ll.
Well, it doesn’t feel like it today, but trust me, it’s here, and I’m loving every second of it.
While there are many things to love about this glorious time of the year, I have narrowed it down to a top six list. So here we go.
1. Pumpkin Beer
The greatest creation since sliced bread. Now I’m not a beer drinker, but this stuff is amazing. I chalk it up to the perfect blend of cinnamon and sugar that coats the rim of the chilled glass. Tastes like dessert in a glass. Yummm.
2. Chili weather
On these chilly days, what is better than a little homemade chili to warm the stomach. It’s especially satisfying when you can be in your pajamas all day, while this delicious creation simmers in a crockpot, filling the house with the best aroma.
3. Netflix and Chill
When it starts to get colder, you start to get lazier. No one wants to go through the hassle of bundling up in layers to venture outside in to the cold and wind. So the best solution is simply to not move. Grab a cuddle buddy, light a candle, and turn on your favorite Netflix series for a night spent on the couch inside. I’m currently Netflix and chilling to Shameless and American Horror Story.
4. The boots and the bum look.
Yes, sand between your toes is an amazing feeling. Sure, flip flops are grand. But the sound of leaves crunching under your leather boots is simply glorious. It’s like an orchestra of pure joy. And what goes better with boots, then oversized knitted sweaters and messy buns decorating the top of your head. Plus it’s an excuse to put away that bikini and go a little harder on the sweets. After all, you can hide it for the next few months with those oversized and cozy sweaters.
5. Nights in with the people you love.
To me, this time of year, is the time to spend with the people you cherish the most. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of your busy lives, and just enjoy each other. Light a fire, make some hot chocolate, and cozy up together. Maybe even bring out your inner child, and break out your favorite board games. Just enjoy some much needed down time with the people that mean the most to you.
6. The scenery
The leaves are breathtaking. Their colors add a little extra pizazz to the world. And soon, the snow will start falling. I know most people are probably rolling their eyes in disgust of the thought of snow, but to me, it’s the most beautiful sight. A white layer of crystals that blanket the world for a little while. I simply cannot wait.
Oh, November, it’s great to see you again. With you, comes so much happiness and beauty. That is why, you are my favorite time of the year.
