I love Fall. I love all of the seasons, but there’s something about Fall that ignites me. Maybe it’s the new beginnings in being an empty nester. Or maybe it’s the joy in the leaves turning those bejeweled deep colors. Maybe it’s the cooler air that soothes my sometimes overheated aging body (lol – menopause). Maybe it’s the fact that I’m finally adjusting to the freedom that I have never experienced before now.
The crisper air after that humid summer heat brings energy to me. I really love watching the cool air breezes rustle the leaves. I like to open the windows and breathe. I need that rush of fresh autumn air in the house after the air conditioner kept us closed up all summer and before the winter chill requires the furnace to be on all the time. I love wearing light hoodies and crunching on leaves while taking my walks. I love that the dog walking people in my neighborhood seem to be out more frequently so there’s always someone nice to bump into when I’m getting the mail, taking the garbage out or puttering in the yard.
I love to crunch on apples with caramel. Give me a nice fire with a toasty blanket and some smores and I’m in heaven in the fall. How about you? Do you like the Fall too?
