It’s finally officially fall, which means a lot of raw emotions. New flavors at Starbucks, new candle scents from Yankee Candles, re-decorating your home in burnt orange and leaves, and finally SCARF and BOOT wardrobe combos.
But, like everything, the autumn we have made up in our minds will be a little off from reality. So, please enjoy this next segment of Expectation vs. Reality!
Expectation: Warm, comforting drinks that both taste like and smell like fall
Reality: PSL’s haunt your Starbucks stops, your work encounters, your social media, your friendships, your nightmares….
Expectation: Skinny jeans with knee-high boots and the cutest scarf
Reality: Sweatshirts… every… day…
3. Holiday Cooking
Expectation: Successfully trying out new recipes you found in Southern Living
Reality: Burning the potatoes….even if that’s not even possible
Expectation: Worked out months before and only eat small portions
Reality: Gained ten pounds after the first round of Thanksgiving, then you go for seconds
Expectation: Jack-o-Lanterns, candles, a new door mat, and maybe even a cornucopia
Reality: You’re a poor millennial, so you are forced to be creative
6. Cozy Nights In
Expectation: The fire crackling, chai tea breweing, and the Hallmark Channel
Reality: You watch Hocus Pocus on replay, by yourself
Until next time
