"I've Been Sittin', Waitin', Wishin'..."

I have been craving for autumn to come. The other day I was reading my book "Belong to Me" by Marisa de los Santos and I read this paragraph and then I really had an overwhelming urge for it to be fall...
"The next day turned out to be the first day of fall, one of my favorite days of the year. I'm not talking about the actual autumnal equinox, which had come and gone a week earlier and had felt pretty much like all the summer days preceding it. What I mean by the first day of fall is that day when you suddenly understand with your whole body that the season has changed. When the air feels snappier against your skin and the sky's blueness turns wistful, and the humming of insects shifts pitch, and you just know like you know your own name that summer is over."
I absolutely can't wait to look outside and see something similar to this.
Fall is the perfect time to take a hike in the woods with a good friend.

Carving pumpkins...I can't wait!

So much fun to get dressed up and have a fall photo shoot with friends.
Top Ten Reasons I love Autumn (in no specific order)
  • The crisp feeling of the air
  • The gorgeous colors of the trees
  • Apple Picking
  • Pumpkin picking
  • Drinking spiced hot apple cider on a chilly day
  • Everything starts to feel cozier
  • Layering clothes and being able to wear a scarf and a jacket again
  • Halloween
  • Thanksgiving
  • Raking leaf piles and jumping in them
