I was walking outside this afternoon when I came across a patch of sidewalk completely covered in leaves. As I walked across the leaves, some dried and some freshly fallen from the tree, I couldn’t help but kick the leaves a little bit as a little skip entered my step. And I realized, my favorite sound of fall is the sound of walking through leaves on a sidewalk or the wind softly blowing leaves across the sidewalk. I then started thinking of each season and my favorite sound and smell of each season.

Here’s the list:

Fall: Sound of leaves, smell of pumpkin spice
Winter: Sound of walking on fresh snow, smell of cinnamon and hot chocolate
Spring: Sound of birds first thing in the morning, smell of grass
Summer: Sound of sprinklers on a large open field, smell of bbq
