Anticipation

If you have read my blog for a while, you know the adoration I have for all things autumn. The steamy, sultry days of summer are slowing fading as a teaser of cool air occasionally caresses my cheek...if only to say "I will be there soon."

The pots of mums are on full display at all the curbside stands and my dreams of warm apple cider and the crackle of a fire have already begun. I yearn for this season and all the comfort that it brings. The changing leaves, the home-baked smells, the crisp air, colors changing from the summery turquoises and peaches to bold rust, plum and earthy brown hues...all of it.

I am ready.

I don't mean to be cheeky, but is there actually a place in The South that experiences Autumn? This is our first Fall away from Oregon, and at least in the Houston area it appears that the only change from Summer will be a slight decrease in humidity. Bah humbug. I'm still gonna decorate, though, and have my own "No-Fall" Fall season. :)

Katie,
You moved to the right state to enjoy autumn. Hopefully we get some more showy colors this year then we did last year. The leaves are already starting to turn out here in East TN. You gotta come and visit us and we can take a day trip to the mountains. I love the fall too, have already started to decorate!

Have I mentioned that we must have been separated at birth. I am so in love with the Fall and I am loving every little peek we get around here!
