8 Fall Photos to Get You Pumped for Autumn

Better Than Pumpkin Spice

By: Tylyn Hansen + Save to a List

Don't get me wrong, I love Pumpkin Spice flavored everything just as much as the next fall fanatic, but let's be honest...it's the cool, crisp air, crunchy leaves, and fiery colors that really makes autumn the best time of year!

Here are a few of my fall favorites to get you (at least a little) more excited about the weather cooling down!

Every year, I'm always a little conflicted about the weather cooling down. I'll be the first to admit, I'm not a cold climate lover. I dread the thought of summer being over...those strong emotional ties from my childhood summers still linger and I hate everything about "back to school." The pumpkin spice and awesome colors make it all worth it! At least until the snow hits.
