Fall is the best season. Whether you call it fall or autumn or just that time of year when everything is just right, I think we can all agree on that. But some of us love fall more than others. While the average person will enjoy a nice pumpkin spice latte and a walk in the park as the trees change colors, others live and breathe all things fall. Yes, fall can be a complete and total obsession.

If you break out your sweaters the second September rolls around, if you think of apple picking as a competitive sport, and if you live for football season and tailgating… you just might be a little obsessed with fall.
