Fall makes me school-girl giddy.
Maybe it’s the cooler air. Perhaps it’s the richly creamy, Earth-drenching colors. I doubt it’s Friday night football frenzies, but the whole world seems to be excited, so that could be part of it, I suppose.
I don’t know what it is, but whatever it is, I like it!
Fall makes me want to prop open my windows. No matter how much I enjoy the smell of my Scentsy warmers and the feel of a well-cooled home in the Summer, there is nothing like the smell of a Fall breeze blowing away the closed-up, overly air conditioned, heat-soaked Summer.
Fall inspires me. I want to take pictures of beautiful Earth angels (luckily, two of the most dazzlingly gorgeous little girls in the world call me Mama, so that’s convenient). I have to feed my family, friends and neighbors until they pass pleasingly full and head straight into uncomfortably jolly. I need decorated pumpkins of all sizes and shapes in my yard, pumpkin cheesecake ice cream in my freezer, steaming, whip-topped pumpkin spice latte in my cup and Pumpkin Patch picturing trips on my calender.
Fall is my favorite time of the year! Can you tell?
Oh, Fall, I wait so impatiently for you through Winter’s heavy clothing, Spring’s green worship and Summer’s unbearable heat blanket. Fall, you are my friend, and I’m so glad you’re finally back.
Won’t you stay a little longer this year?
