Happy First Day of Autumn!
I’m no Lee Majors, but I am definitely a fall guy. One of the perks of living in the Northeast is getting to experience this season to the fullest. I love the cooler temps, the autumn colors, wearing sweaters and watching the dogs play in the leaves. I tend to avoid the explosion of pumpkin flavored things and I’m not looking forward to what comes next (cold, snow and ice) but I do love this transition from summer to winter, as it brings me a sense of calm for some reason. I even enjoy the sound of crunching leaves under my feet.
I have developed, in the last few years, a renewed (although still subdued by most standards) enthusiasm for all the upcoming holidays, so I look forward to the various celebrations and decorations to come.
Further, this year, we have lots of plans already in place through to New Years, so there’s also excitement and anticipation for lots to come over the next few weeks and months.
Oh, and all the kids are back in school so yay for that (although getting stuck behind school busses is the worst.)
So many reasons to love this time of year. Are you a fall person, too? If so, what makes this time of year special for you?
