You know it, you know it, it is just around the corner.

I love fall as the heat of the summer gives way to slightly cooler days.

Wegman's decided to celebrate the transition to fall by putting all their cinnamon decorations outside in the 90 degree heat. So on the plus side with all the cinnamon pinecones, cinnamon wreaths and cinnamon brooms, it smells like cinnamon rolls outside of Wegman's. The negative... it is 90 degrees and this weekend may get up to 100.

So be on the lookout for all your wreaths and halloween candy.

I love summer, but also love fall. I'm ready for the cooler weather, pumpkin pie and turning leaves.

YES. It was cold and rainy a couple days here last week, and I was thriving. I am so ready for pumpkin everything and for the smell of fallen leaves. Mom already broke out the fall decorations. We are so over the heat.

i feel like i saw back to school stuff at target at the end of june. so ridiculous.

it's been a really hot summer here in New England and being a pasty fair complexioned gal i dont get along with the sun and humidity is no fun.
since im home with a toddler when i take her outside to play i hate standing in the sun because i feel like im going to burn up and die and i just sweat profusely.

so yeah im ready for fall. I LOVE FALL IN NEW ENGLAND. i just hate the idea that winter is coming next.

i like when we used to have spring. spring was my favorite season but it seems like the last several years it only has last like a week,

Yes, please, fall. The weather this week is just foul; I can't deal with this heat.

Our leaves are already turning. When I opened my sunroof today, a massive clump of leaves fell on my head. I should have anticipated that since I had to brush off my windshield.

Apples!

I'm ready for at least a few weeks where we don't need AC or heat and can just have the windows open.

I am dying for fall. Summer doesn't do good things for my health and this summer has been really hot and humid and I'm over it.

I'm down for some sweater weather!
(insert sweater weather SNL clip here since my phone is being a pain and not doing it)

Same here: I'm one of the weirdos who gets serious seasonal depression in the summer. I almost always hit a pretty nasty spot in mid to late July. I've been struggling a lot the past few weeks and my eating has been so horrible, but it hasn't been as bad as it has been in previous years, probably because I don't have as much stress re: job stuff this summer.

I am not ready for fall. That means fall semester, and I'm enjoying my last bit of freedom before massive stress and anxiety makes its reappearance

We haven't really had summer here yet, so I'm not ready for fall. That said, I'm ready for fall bike racing, so it's a paradox.

I do too! I get seasonal affective disorder, but just...er...in the summer. Heat makes me dizzy and nauseated. I literally picked up and moved to the midwest because I couldn't handle the weather in SE Texas anymore. Summers here are much shorter but it does get pretty miserable.

I can't wait until Fall though! Give me some orange leaves and open-window/hoodie weather and I am in heaven.

Yesterday was the worst! In Massachusetts, anyway. So so hot and humid, and it didn't cool down at night (which, thankfully, it had been doing this summer).

I got out of my car and my sunglasses fogged up. And the doors at the grocery store were dripping wet with condensation. And my a/c only got my apartment down to 83.

I hate winter, but I do love fall on its own. So yes I am ready.

Fall won't be here for us for another 10 weeks. This is the hottest part of the summer!

Why do these fall threads always pop up when I'm still waiting for most of my garden veggies to mature, and trying to enjoy the rest of the warm weather? We have six months of winter, and barely any summer. Can't we just enjoy all the summer we can soak up?

It was 108F here today with the heat index. That's not summer--that's wandering into Death Valley by accident, without water.

It's foggy and in the low 60s (16C) here today. I've been sitting under blankets, baking granola and drinking smoked tea all week. Might as well get started with pumpkin pies.

I just can't handle the 90+ temps and serious humidity. I took a t-shirt out of the washing machine and hung it up to dry overnight. It did not dry. Everything feels gross.

I'd also like to skip winter though. 40-80F is my perfect temperature range.

it's supposed to be really bad again tomorrow (Sunday) my husband said.
i was in Boston last night for a show and we were waiting outside in line and basically melting. someone had flown up from GA and was like AHHH IM DYING IT"S SO HOT HERE!

my least favorite thing about humidity/heat other than feeling like im going to die is when i take a shower and immediately start sweating when i get out.

Same, I get hayfever and headaches which make me miserable and my anxiety goes through the roof in summer months for some reason. I mean we don't get crazy summers like some of you guys in the states.....the top temp here has been 90f but I find that unbearable. Nowhere has air con here so everything just gets muggy and gross.

So yay, looking forward to Autumn! Cannot wait to snuggle under blankets with doglets and a hot chocolate. Also pumpkins and Hallowe'en! And all the good root vegetables to make stews. And soup! I will be making lots of delicious soups.

And bare beaches to walk the dogs on. Dogs are banned on the beach May to August, so it'll be nice to take them to their favourite place again :)

Oh yes, soup! It's rainy and cooler here the last couple days and I made the Cheddary Broccoli Soup from IDI and man, I've missed soup. Hopefully by the autumn we'll have a doggle as well and we can play in the fallen leaves!
