Have you recently moved to a city or state that has a constant warm climate? Or maybe you’re a born and raised warm-weather native like me. If so, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. This is how to celebrate fall if you live somewhere warm. Particularly Phoenix, AZ.
(Also, just so you know how devoted I am to this post… it was 97 degrees while shooting these photos. Wrapped in blankets. And a long sleeve denim top and jeans. Don’t let those clouds fool you!)
How to celebrate fall if you live somewhere warm
1 | Drink a pumpkin spice latte, hot, even if it is still 100 degrees outside.
2 | If it’s raining, that means it’s acceptable to wear boots, coats and scarves. So go ahead and layer up!
3 | If the temperature dips below triple digits during the day, make sure you tell everyone about it.
4 | Break out the blankets! It’s fall after all! But don’t forget to crank up your air conditioning so you can actually use them.
5 | If you don’t have any noticeable differences in seasons, be sure to decorate your house in plenty of faux leaves and store-bought pine cones to really drive home that it’s autumn.
6 | Leave your doors and windows open during a “cool” evening, but close them shortly after once you realize you’re wasting precious air conditioning.
7 | If you happen to see a tree on the side of the road that looks like it might be changing color, don’t get excited. It’s just dead from the most recent heat wave.
8 | Drive two hours north for some real cool weather and color-changing leaves. Don’t forget to take a lot of pictures of the trees and post them all over facebook.
9 |If you happen to talk to anyone from another state, make sure you ask them how the weather is and if the leaves have changed yet. Follow their response with a longing sigh.
Happy First Day of Fall!!
Hope you liked the post, and maybe even chuckled a little bit if you can totally relate to it. I am guilty of every single one of these, and I am not ashamed. Hope you all are enjoying some nice warm beverages with a view of some color-changing trees on this chilly autumn day. 😉
All the best,
