Fall in Baltimore is the most beautiful thing that I have ever experienced, simple as that. The leaves changing, the turtleneck sweaters, and the cool weather all bring a huge smile to my face. As you may know, I am from Louisiana, so we don’t exactly experience fall. In honor of my first fall, I have compiled a list of my three favorite things about fall!!!
1. Leaves, Leaves, and More Leaves
The constant foliage is a beautiful sight. I honestly never knew that trees could be different colors, at the same time. Back home, leaves are typically either green or nonexistent, so you can imagine my surprise when I saw green, yellow, red, and even orange leaves!
With my love for anything and everything holiday-ish, Halloween truly was the highlight of my fall semester. I decided to use what I had in my closet for my costume, so, consequently, I arrived at this. A bit of a combination of Independence Day and Halloween. I visited Fell’s Point, which is a must do for all Hopkins students sometime in their time in Baltimore. I met so many people, saw so many costumes, and mostly, made so many memories. Although my legs were freezing by the end of the night (I recommend wearing pants…), I had the best Halloween of my life in Baltimore, and it’s even crazier to think that I have three more to go!
3. Family and Friends
With a visit from my brother topping my October off, and my friends making my first fall absolutely unforgettable, I cannot help but to shout out the people that made Fall 2014 so fantastic. I revisited Inner Harbor, Fell’s Point, and Washington D.C. and I know, pics or it didn’t happen. Lastly, with Thanksgiving right around the corner, I cannot help but to express how truly grateful I am to be a Blue Jay this Fall!
