Crisp air, crunchy leaves, and chunky sweaters; it’s the time of year whereas the trees shed their leaves and flowers die, the Earth seems to come alive with color. The smells of fall pumpkins, apples and cinnamon radiate throughout winter until it’s time for coconuts and mangos and sunshine once again. It’s also the time of year when sometimes all you want to do is snuggle up with someone you love and watch movies and talk and laugh together… and whether you have someone or not, it’s still a nice thought to have - dreaming of cozy days with someone next to you. Whether you’re in school looking forward to your next day off or heading out on a road trip with your friends, here some of my favorite fall go-to songs to get you in the spirit of the hand-holding season:
