It's that time of year again where things begin to change, starting a fresh new cycle of new beginnings and great things to come. The leaves begin to change into a colorful array, worthy of a painting or a post card. The smoldering temperatures ease, a crisp breeze taking it's place- well, at times anyway. With Mother Nature having raging PMS, it's true fall weather one day, in the 80's the next. (like today)
I love the start of each and every season. Maybe it's some connection we have to the earth, or just a stepping stone to another chapter in life. Autumn has always been my favorite, because with it brings the start to the holiday season. That, and, it is also my darling daughter's name... haha.
I've never been one to decorate for the seasons or holiday's aside from Christmas and the three jack-o-lanterns on Halloween... but have an itch to start. I find myself getting so wrapped up in things to do and the monotonous cycle of each day that I forget to take a step back and find a reason to celebrate. Since I'm a little late this year to rush out and buy festive decorations, that's going to be added to my New Year's Resolution.... that and to quit procrastinating lol. I do plan on venturing out with the kids once the leaves are at their peak display and snapping a bunch of pictures to add to my hoard of photos. Nothing spectacular, just a day to slow things down and appreciate the world around us... and maybe a thermos of hot apple cider. Who knows what is in store for us, but I wanna grip it by the horns and hold on for the ride!
Happy Autumn everyone... may this be the start to a wonderful new story of life with plenty of plot twists, romance, action, and fun for each and every one!
