Hot Summer days are slowly being swept up by the wind. The green of leaves are transforming into vibrant oranges and reds. Gloves, scarves, and boots are being donned. Pies are baking, pumpkins are being picked, hot drinks are brewing. There’s a curious smell of excitement in the air, mystery. And with a sudden expectant thrill, one realizes: Autumn is coming.
Fall is the best! Slowly, but surely, these miserably hot days are working their way towards crisp, cool air, and what a thrill it gives me!
I had a very pleasant summer. I finished writing a book, got a lot of editing done, swam a good bit, and just had an all around nice, lazy time. But when fall approaches, that laziness in me packs its bags and is replaced by an invigorated readiness to DO. A whole new sense of life awakens inside me. Perhaps it’s the invigorating cool air. Whatever it is, I absolutely love fall!
Whether you’re curled up in your favorite spot sipping on hot cider reading a book or out jumping in the fallen leaves, autumn has it all.
I plan on fully embracing this next month, filling it with lattes and boots and scarves and opened windows and pictures of the changing leaves and blankets and books. I’m going to take my laptop outside with a latte in hand and plan my novel for NaNoWriMo. And I’m just going to ENJOY this beautiful coming season God has blessed us with.
Embracing the fall with vigor!
