Simple Pleasures:: Autumn
"suddenly summer fell into autumn"
A few weeks ago, I started to get that longing for Autumn. Yeah, that happy feeling deep inside that crisp air and cozy sweaters bring. Well, finally it has arrived! And the first day of fall did not let me down, it was a little cooler here and I even got to throw on a light sweater as I headed out to the bus stop in the morning. YAY!!
I love every season of the year but the months of September to November are just my favorite! It is the time of year that everything seems a little lighter and most beautiful. It always seems to happen this way a few days ago, I was lamenting over the end of summer and trying to get through the hot weather bucket list. Spending weekends at the beach, savoring ice cream cones, and enjoying barbecue and water balloon fights in the backyard then suddenly the leaves begin to change colors. Summer is over. But we aren't sad actually we rejoice and welcome the change. Year after year, autumn shows up to slow things down and remind us to be grateful for what we have as we spend more time closer to loved ones. Yes, this is why I love this season.
As we are heading into the first weekend of fall, I am making a mental note of all the things that I hope to accomplish but also all the reasons this time of year is so MAGICAL!
