I can't wait until Autumn.
I know it's still July, and Autumn is still several weeks away, but it is by far my favorite season.
Fall brings memories of going back to school, apple picking, Halloween/trick-or-treating,
baking pies, cooking/eating Thanksgiving meals with friends and family, walking outside in the perfect weather-wearing boots, scarves..the leaves changing colors and falling from the trees, raking up those leaves and jumping into the pile..warm apple cider, harvest festivals in small towns..
Probably one of the bigger things that reminds me of Autumn, now as an adult, is my wedding. I married Daniel on November 15, 2008. It's hard to believe that this year will be our 2nd anniversary. It seems like just the other day we were planning our wedding, and while I am so happy to be married, it was sad no longer having that to plan. But I am looking forward to the other things we are slowly planning together, even if those things are way far off into the future.
Now that we are in a townhouse, I am looking forward even more to Fall. We'll have trick-or-treaters this year (we never had them before in our apartment). We'll be able to put our pumpkins on our front steps..not that that is a big deal or anything important, but it's the small things like that that count at the end of the day.
Fall to me really brings in the start of the holiday season, and I love the holidays...just another thing I look forward to every year.
