sometimes i wish for fall, wish for the release
yup. that's a weird al-esque rip off of florence and the machine. deal with it.
isn't fall the best? i know i am simply joining the masses of pinterest-ers in the sharing of this sentiment, but i can't help it. i love this season. now, i don't live in a place that is truly fall-ish. the desert doesn't exactly shift to cold come mid-september. there aren't really leaves on the ground. but, it is still such a lovely time. the light changes. the air feels different.
the lethargy of summer dissipates. my body wakes up. i once again enjoy evening runs in the crisp air. my toes long to be covered by socks and blankets and boots. my soul is refreshed by the cinnamon-spiced breeze. i turn once again to thick blankets, evenings with a mug of something warming, and cuddling to the glow of flickering candles. the heat and haze of summer is lifted and i am left invigorated. inspired. new projects. a woolen wardrobe. different music. goodies to bake.
what a special time of year. relaxation and slowing down and cozying up seem to effortlessly harmonize with intensification and bustling about and venturing out. i love the unique contrast that fall brings.
what are your fall favorites? what gets you excited about this season?
