Living in Florida we don't see much of a season change.  As September turns to October the grass stays green, the palm trees still wave their branches, and the air is hot (upper 90's all week with high humidity).  We had a cold front two weeks ago.  I think we had a low of 72.  Brrrrr.  But, I think fall is on it's way.  Why?  Because we have a low of 59 on Sunday (with a high of 80.  woo hoo).  No!

I can't depend on weather to get me in the fall mood so I depend on other factors.  
Tastespotting - October brings the shift from light fruit desserts, tarts, and salads to everything pumpkin!  Soups, stews, must be cool somewhere!
My wardrobe - I can't wear boots and heavy cable-knit sweaters yet, but I have started to shift from my light colored work clothes to my fall colors.  Orange, green, brown...yum.  I just have to choose fall type clothing that is light weight.

This being said, I love the holiday season.  I don't know Christmas with snow, I only know Christmas in a t-shirt.  But the sights, smells, and sounds put me in the spirit.  Come on November, I'm ready for you!
