Ok, call me crazy, but even in the midst of this 90+ weather I can feel fall just around the corner. I love it! I know that by the end of every season it seems like I can't WAIT for the next one to come. That's why I say "Thank goodness for four seasons!" I LOVE LOVE LOVE fall. I love the sunny, but cool days with cold mornings and nights. I love the fall colors, the smell of burning fireplaces, and getting cozy in hoodies or sweaters. I love it! And for some reason, fall really reminds me of home, even if I'm not enjoying the brilliant New England fall colors. Fall always has been my favorite season. It reminds me of after school snacks, Saturday morning soccer games in the cold, the anticipation of all the Holidays (including my birthday!), jumping in huge piles of leaves, and all my favorite things about living in New England. Even being so far away, all the smells, sounds, and feelings that fall brings bring me back to my most wonderful memories of home.
