Welcome!

Today is the first official day of Autumn.

Hooray!!!

First let me admit that I had a beautiful wonderful awesome summer, filled with many magical experiences with some amazing people (3 of whom I'm blessed to call my children) and I will miss this summer deeply. Sniff. Sniff. I mourn it's loss. ...

K. Now moving on...

I. love. Autumn! It's my favorite season all the way! I love it when that first bite of fall touches the air, when those last days of summer seem to linger until suddenly the first nips of pink kiss your nose and cheeks, and Heaven starts to produce one of it's most glorious masterpieces. I get weak in the knees at the thought of pencils, plaid and pumpkins. I relish the coziness of apples, cinnamon sticks, flannel and *sweaters*!! I start feel as though there is nothing better than a used book boutique and the anticipation of getting comfortable with an old copy of something classic. Potpourri, thick candles, and large wreaths start to seem strangely appealing. I love it when the ground is dressed in an exciting layer of reds, yellows and brown and every step I take is rewarded with a delightful crunch. Autumn awakens the nostalgia in me. I feel drawn to old black and white photos, my mother's old recipes, and reminiscing with people who are dear to me.

I also like that once daylight savings time hits, I can get away with putting my kids to bed an hour earlier.

Tenise, I LOVE autumn too. By far the best time of the year for the exact reasons you mentioned. However, since I live in the south the only tree that I get to see change color is the one I have in my front yard. The rest stay green or turn brown. sniff, sniff. Oh, and I love it the very first time you can smell someone lighting a fire in their fireplace. Crazy, I know. Welcome Fall indeed! :)

Wow! If I didn't have any real conviction towards autumn, I do now. Thanks for taking the time to appreciate the beauty. I'd like to add one more - Stephen's hot chocolate. Ahhh...and since autumn seems to be the season of moving for us, Stephens is a simple comfort I can always count on.

As usual, you are my soul sister...plus all the cool people were born in the Autumn...LOL

Tenise said...

Lol Brittany, you know THAT'S true! I totally agree with everything else that's been added! Fireplaces, hot chocolate, and cider! I also want to add old buildings with vines. That's a fall favorite of mine that I'd forgotten as I haven't lived in the town where I developed that love for quite a while.

I like Autumn too. Unfortunately it doesnt come in very well in arizona. though yesterday I walked into Safeway and they had two huge boxes of pumpkins by the entrance. And the dollar store has halloween stuff on sale.
