A Perfect Fall Day!


The best thing about living in Ohio is the fall season!  I love the cooler, but very comfortable, temperatures.  I also love the changing colors of the leaves.  And one cannot forget about pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin spice lattes, and of course pumpkin beer!  Just about every brewing company now brews a pumpkin or October beer and I pretty much like them all.  I just wish they didn’t start selling them until September! 

To me a perfect fall day would be to wake up to temperatures in the low to mid 50s.  Enjoy some sort of pumpkin flavored coffee / latte at our favorite coffee shop.  And then hitting some trails with family and friends where the temperature would now be in the low 60s.  Just cool enough to possible require some arm warmers or maybe a long sleeved jersey, but definitely not any winter gear or gloves.  The trees would hopefully still have its leaves, but now instead of green they would be a beautiful mixture of reds, oranges, and yellows.  The day would end by sitting around a camp fire to keep warm while the temperature would by then be falling back down into the 50s and of course enjoying a nice variety of pumpkin flavored beers.

And that would be my perfect fall day!

PS – the worst thing about living in Ohio is the ugly, grey, winter days.
