Love is in the Air

30 Sep 2017, 3:18 pm

There’s just something about fall. Leaves are changing, temperatures are falling, and love is in the air.

Just take a second and look around, PDA is on the rise and I’m not even mad about it.

Changing Weather

My fingers have mashed out a few snarky articles lately about the loss of my precious daylight or the odd timing of meteorological fall vs. astrological fall. All valid points– but put all of those together, top it with the holidays looming in the distance, and you have the perfect recipe for a budding relationship.

Cooler temperatures mean we can spend more time outside without overheating. It seems straight forward, but bear with me.

Fashionable layers are the perfect accessory to a day of leaf peeping or an afternoon at the pumpkin patch. But as the sun sets (absurdly early) the falling night and cooler temps are the perfect recipe for a warm embrace under a comforting blanket.

Thanks to the cooler temperatures and early nights, no friend seems to mind the rain check on those fleeting summertime get togethers.

What a beautiful view from Butterfield Canyon in Utah!

Pumpkin Spice

Really, if we try hard enough, we can blame everything on pumpkin spice.

It’s become the aroma of fall, but did you know it’s also an aphrodisiac?

Sounds crazy, but bare with me. (pun intended)

Pumpkin is actually the aphrodisiac here. Though we Americans typically associate the orange gourd with carved faces and haunted hay rides, around the world other cultures celebrate this fall treat as a romantic stimulant.

To keep it simple, we’ll just say it’s the abundance of nutrients that get the juices flowing. And it works.

Even though your pumpkin spice latte has a grand total of absolutely no pumpkin in it, I am going to convince you it does the same thing as serving up a heaping plate of jack-o-lantern.

You see, through years of conditioning, we’ve come to associate a specific combination of spices with the consumption of the fall-time orange-arouser. This is the very reason all of the pumpkin spiced marketing works so well.

Our bodies are effectively tricked into thinking we are consuming the pumpkin because we’ve associated those smells and tastes with it for so long. This simple illusion is more than enough to get the libido going. Thus making pumpkin spice every bit as effective as the real deal.


If all of this has you scared you might find a little solace in a partnered costume.

There’s still time to throw together the Raggedy Ann and Andy or Adam and Eve ensemble.

After all, it’s a great way to test the waters before bringing that special someone home to meet the extended family over Thanksgiving.
