Autumn is here

I can remember a time when people would ask me what my favorite season was and I would respond summer because I loved to swim. I still love to swim but I think my answer to the question has changed. I don't know what it is about this time of the year but it just has this feeling to it. It is hard to explain which means I can't say for sure why it is my favorite.

Red, orange and yellow fill the trees (when we are lucky). Fall decorations begin appearing in stores and around houses. Pumpkins. Cooler weather. The smell of burning leaves. All of these are great and I am sure add to why it is my favorite season but I don't think they are the reasons why I love Autumn so much.

In the end, I think the sights, smells and feel of Autumn probably bring back subconscious memories of childhood or something. Regardless, I love the outdoors and this is a great time of the year to be outside and enjoy the weather.

What is your favorite season? Why?
