I love the fall! I always have. I remember when I was a teenager, hanging out with friends in the late afternoon as it started to get dark. We would often play hide and seek, ring doorbells and run away or snatch apples and other delectable treats from neighborhood gardens. My favorite was snow peas, but they were hard to find. The most exciting thing was holding hands with a secret boyfriend and no one could see it in the dark. Wearing the Fall in love wrist warmers reminds me of the wonderful feeling of these bygone days.
