Something About Autumn

There is just something about autumn that I will always love. I think when I was younger, the fact that school was starting and my birthday was at the end of September first sparked my love for this season. As I got older, the scenery during this time of year kept me happy. (Not to mention wearing my favorite clothes, boots and sweaters, everywhere!)

Something about autumn just makes me want this: sitting in the tub, writing or reading, sipping on delicious tea (or hot apple cider...yum!), with candles flickering everywhere. It's the simple things that always make me feel at peace. Too bad with today's crazy lifestyle this doesn't happen often enough.

I think in the end, the colors of fall really get to me. Sunset has always been my favorite time of day and the way the sun filters through the leaves in the fall is breathtaking. I even love the smell of the leaves. Weird, yes. But, what can I say? I don't know what I would do if I didn't live in a place that didn't have autumn.


  1. That second photo is amazing. Weeeee, fall!

  2. These photos do really show the best of autumn. Thanks for your comment, I'm still uncertain about what to do, but the encouragement helps - I'm going towards maybe doing archaeology and anthropology now, but nothing's definite yet!
