You may have noticed the air is cooler, the days are shorter and the pumpkin spice latte is warming your hands as you read this.

It is autumn. It is Redhead Season!

Pumpkins, Halloween decorations and the color red are everywhere. It is my favorite time of the year. As a child, I always looked forward to when the seasons changed.

However, as I get older, I started looking forward to the small things that really make the season magical. Warm socks, sweaters, and hot tea.

But my ultimate favorite has to be the color red.

It is everywhere, which makes me feel like I am walking in a dream. A world that changes to match my red hair. As if Mother Nature is dedicating one season to me and all redheads out there. I believe that has made me feel at-one with nature.

I also enjoy that I can wear my favorite comfort clothes again: jeans, long sleeves and slightly large sweatshirts. As well as not having to wear too much makeup, while wearing fuzzy socks, drinking hot cocoa and scrolling through Pinterest.

Autumn and redheads are always good to each other, like sugar and spice. Scary movies, pumpkin pie, and my personal favorite, Halloween.

Rock it like a Redhead this fall, and know that it is your time to shine.
