Mornings are a little cooler. Nights require an extra blanket and windows shut. Your car needs some more time to warm up in the morning—it’s officially fall. The leaves have started changing, and the newness of the school year has already worn off. It’s the time of year just before the holidays where you get to break out the long sleeves and plan your first trip of the season to the pumpkin patch. There is nothing like seeing the steam rising from your coffee cup as you look for the perfect pumpkin.
If it wasn’t obvious, we like fall. The trees, the crisp air and the race to find the ultimate Halloween costume—what’s not to love? There are also plenty of fall baby names that we love to see.
