I Want To Know: Do You Prefer Summer or Fall?


What's Your Favorite Season: Summer or Fall? // Bubby and Beanborder=

As summertime begins to wind down and whispers of fall creep in (time to start keeping count of how many bloggers mention the phrase 'pumpkin spice latte!'), I've been thinking about how so many people I know seem to strongly identify with either summer or fall as a favorite season.  There's always something exciting about the transition of seasons and the newness of beginning a new period of the year, but these two seasons in particular seem to capture people's hearts.  I decided that I'd ask some of Bubby and Bean's medium and large sponsors to share which of the two they most love, and to ask you guys for your opinion too.  And although most of my regular readers probably know which one I choose (hands down), I'll tell you again at the end of the post. :) To find out more about the rad people behind Bubby and Bean's August sponsor team, just click on the links in each of their submissions below to visit their homes around the web.


1. BRANDI FROM MUCHO MUCHO BUENO BUENO: SUMMER
SUMMER VIBES for sure!  Sun in my face, sand in my toes!  Here in Texas we don't have a Fall anyway. We have Summer then a little Winter and that is it. hahaha. Summer time = Margarita Mondays, Taco Tuesdays and lots of pool days!  :)

2. THE TEAM AT BLOWFISH SHOES: FALL
We’re going to have to say fall! As much as we love the hot summer months, there’s nothing better than slipping into a pair of boots on the first chilly day of autumn!

3. SHANNON FROM SHANNON HEARTS: SUMMER
Without doubt, I prefer SUMMER! I love the sunny weather, harvesting my vegetable garden, and spending long days at the beach with my family. Nothings better!

DISCOUNT: 15% Off all ad spaces at Shannon Hearts until the end of August.

4. SARA FROM WINE COUNTRY GOODNESS: FALL
Harvest in Sonoma County is magical with all the grape vines turning into a deep, rich spectrum of rust and gold, the bright sun warming the crisp breeze, and the abundance of comfort foods showing up on seasonal menus. Fall is the peak season for traveling to Wine Country and there are a TON of amazing events here; however, for me, fall is all about enjoying my home. There is nothing I like more than staying in with a fire going, a bowl of curried butternut squash soup, a glass of local Pinot, a spiced candle, and a snuggly blanket. With the arrival of my first baby this fall, I definitely feel like fall is now and forever will be my favorite season!

5. MACK FROM SOULMAKES: SUMMER
This is a real toughy, but I have to go with summer. I absolutely love the transformation that mother nature undergoes during fall, although I thrive much more in the warm months!

6. LAURA FROM ROOTS & FEATHERS: FALL
My favorite season of all is fall. I love the way the weather begins to brush your skin with coolness after long hot texas days, the smell of cedar in the air, the turning colors of the leaves, the excitement of campfires, and getting to wear layers again.

7. JENNIFER FROM EARL GREY:  BOTH
I love the end of summer, when the sun is still out but there is a slight breeze, hinting that fall is on its way. I have truly never been able to decide whether I'm a summer or fall girl - I love them both too much!

8. MARIA FROM MARIA DENOMME PHOTOGRAPHY: FALL
If I had to pick, I think I prefer Fall over Summer. My reasons behind this would be because fall gives you chilly weather so you can layer clothes and start to get into those comfy sweaters you had tucked away. But fall is also good for photographs because you have all the bright coloured trees a beautiful back drops for any type of photo shoot!

9. LINDSAY FROM WHITE BEAR: SUMMER
I live in a place with an endless summer, Miami! Every day is beautiful blue skies and palm trees, aka paradise. I wouldn't want it any other way :)

10. MARIA FROM LITTLE TREE: FALL
I prefer fall because I love everything about the season. I love the change in temperature, the change in our clothing choices and most of all I love watching the leaves fall. I love summer too but I prefer the chilly sweatshirt weather instead of the humid short weather.

As for me, I am a summer girl through and through.  Although I love autumn's vibrant colored leaves and fresh apple cider and all that goodness, I just can't help but associate it with the beginning of the descent into winter.  (And anyone from the Chicago area can attest that winters here are pretty brutal!)  I am one of those people with a spirit that awakens in the spring, and I feel most alive in the summertime.  To me, there is nothing that compares with sun on your face, long days, barefoot walks, outdoor parties, music under the stars, fresh food from the garden, sundresses, beaches, and summer road trips.  It's by far my favorite season, and I plan to relish in every moment of it until the calendar tells me it's over.

Your turn!  Are you a summer person or do you crave autumn?  I want to know!

  1. Fall all the way! Cool air energizes me. I love the colors of changing trees, multiple clothing layers (and boots!), not to mention pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin bread. ;)

    Maybe having never endured a Chicago winter helps me love fall.

  3. Fall! Summer is nice, but it's harder for me to get dressed when it's 9 million degrees. I prefer blazers and boots ANY day. Plus, Halloween is in the fall!

  4. Summer!!! The days are longer and it makes me feel like I can get so much more done. The sun is shining and we get to do lots of outdoor and water play activities with the kiddos. Did I mention the beach? Hands down, it's summer!
    Fall has its upside too, as it can be the perfect temperature, not too hot & not too cold (and I love it when we don't have to use the A/C or heater).

  5. Fall...not even close. If I lived in a state where summers were less brutal (like CA, or really anywhere that's not on the east coast) then it might be a close call because I do love the longer days.

  6. I am not really a Summer person at all. I loooove everything about the Fall, the weather, the colors, the food, wearing tights again! Yay!!

  7. SUMMER 100%! I feel like everyone gets all excited about fall in August because it's something different and people are sick of the heat. But fall is really only pretty til the leaves fall off the trees. =) You can't replace the long days or sunshine of summer.

  8. Summer! I love long days, icecream, summer fruits, sitting outside and being able to wear shorts and open shoes :-)

  9. I really love both seasons for so many reasons. I have to say summer, but it's a tough choice!

  10. Great list of answers...pretty close tie there.
    I'm a summer girl too. I love the warm weather :) But fall is definitely my second.

  11. FALL-LA-LA-LAAA. Fall because of layers and the colors, maybe I'd love summer more if I lived somewhere that wasn't really hot and humid.. but still, fall always.

  13. Autumn is my favorite for surrrre! Summer is fab for personal holidays (mine and Jen's b-days, and our anniversary, plus other b-days in the family!) We also love a good Summer BBQ, swimming, and of course, camping! But Autumn... Pumpkin hunting, and carving; Pumpkin Spice Lattes, chilly air, beef and veggie stew, chili, hoodie wearing, etc. Of course, Halloween/Samhain is my absolute FAVORITE part of Autumn!!! :D
