The winds will blow their own freshness into you,
and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop away from you
like the leaves of Autumn.

~ by John Muir

I'm so excited for Fall even though I live in Southern California and we don't have "real" Autumns in my opinion. Growing up, I lived in the Napa Valley with actual changes in the seasons. It was heavenly, although I didn't appreciate as much as a little girl should. The crispness in the air just as school was starting in September was like a refreshing reprieve from the heat of the summer. The leaves would slowly change and float down to the grass, giving us big piles of leaves to jump and run through. Chilly winds turning our noses pink and making it hard to use our fingers. The smell of fireplaces drifting through the overcast skies. Glistening frost on the grass in the mornings.  These are the things I miss about Autumn.

I'm like cats, whenever I'm near fire I like to seat really close and get really warm. our Autumn is still hot (31ºC) I'm still wearing t-shirts. I also miss the Fall from my childhood, when my grandmother was alive. today I gave you the Versatile Blogger award! check my blog dear. xo
