Autumn in Kansas vs. Autumn in Boston

It is still way too hot for my liking here in Kansas, and more than any other time of year, I am yearning for the brisk but beautiful fall weather in Boston. Autumn always reminds me of New England, not just for the many reruns of Gilmore Girls I have been indulging in lately, but because that was when I would return to college each year, not that long ago (wait…it’s been almost a decade?!). I went for my Bachelors in the Boston area in the late 2000s and while I am incredibly happy where I am in my life, I still get a pang of nostalgia when I hear a particular song or feel that autumn chill (if it would finally get here!).

Not one to scoff or scorn nostalgia (I practically live for the stuff), I have been listening to my fall playlist a lot lately. For your listening pleasure, grab a comfy over-sized sweater and a chai tea (no pumpkin!) and snuggle in for a little while:

  11. What’s a Girl to Do? – Bat For Lashes
  12. Dreams – The Cranberries
  13. Royals – Lorde
  14. Tiger Mountain Peasant Song – Fleet Foxes
