Autumn is my
favorite season and October is my favorite month, so I couldn’t be
happier that Kelsey nominated me for the Sweater Weather Tag. Thanks a lot!

and a talented artist to boot.)
nectarine. Also, anything to do with food (pumpkin pie, hazelnut) or flowers
Coffee, Tea, or
Depends on my
mood. If I want to feel cozy and/or artistic, I’ll go for tea. If I’m barely
awake or need something icy and covered in whipped cream, it’s coffee (Frappuccinos
are the best). When it’s snowing, my first choice is always hot chocolate.
What’s the best
fall memory you have?
One Halloween, my
sisters and I decided to make caramel apples together. It was almost a disaster--the
white chocolate refused to melt right and ended up mostly on the floor, and the
caramel began to melt off the apples—but everything tasted delicious in the
end, which was all we were really hoping for.
I’m not picky about perfumes. The best fall smell is burning wood and leaves.
in gravy. Mashed potatoes covered in gravy. Gravy covered in more gravy.
What is autumn
weather like where you live?
Anything from very
mild to extremely cold, depending on the day. We don’t usually get snow before
November, though, and the changing leaves are always gorgeous.
A big blue one
with sleeves that I can never keep rolled up.
Football games or
jumping in leaf piles?
Skinny jeans or
believe it or not. I think they’re pretty comfortable.
Combat boots or
Combat boots. Any
kind of boots, really.
Is Pumpkin Spice
worth the hype?
I’m not too crazy
about pumpkin spice, to be honest. I do love pumpkin pie and pumpkin rolls.
perfect any time of the year, but it’s super fun to watch during fall,
especially the older, scarier episodes. Any Halloween-themed episode from
any Disney Channel TV show.
What song really
gets you into the fall spirit?
Anything from The
Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack.
What do you want
to be for Halloween?
I don’t dress up
much anymore, but if I could get all my friends together I’d make sure we all dressed
up as either hunters from Supernatural (which is easy—all you really need is a
lot of plaid) or characters from Treasure Planet.
Scarves! My hair’s
too thick for hats to fit on my head.
What’s your #1
favorite thing about fall?
The chilly, spooky
atmosphere. Candy apples. Ghost stories. Pumpkins. I always seem to get a rush
of new story ideas in the fall, which is wonderful. My absolute favorite thing,
though, would have to be that sweet spot in late September and early October
when the weather’s not too hot or too cold. I live for those days.
