I know you're out there, folks. My kindred spirits who today feel like burning pumpkin-scented candles and making a hot dish. Who will pull on their favorite hoodie and actually look like one of those people in a fabric softener commercial when you do, since it feels sooooo good. You will be outside today. Even if it's just to stand there and suck it into your lungs because you know we'll probably get a few more toasty days before the frost.
Today I'm going to go find myself some Honeycrisp Apples. I have a Honeycrisp tree in my backyard, but they're not quite ready. I already have a candle burning. I'm going to dig out some of my fall decorations to put out. I'm going to wear my leaf bracelet. I'm going to hold my cup of coffee with both hands. I'm going to watch football. Oh, I am in a good mood.
Fall is very important to me. Almost every big event in my life has happened in the fall. I started dating my husband in the fall--does anyone remember the homecoming bonfire of 1993? Yeah, my first motorcycle ride with hubby. He smelled so good..... I got married in the fall. I had both my kids in the fall. I used to have a HUGE party every fall, or at least when I could. I have done it about six times, and would love to do it again. With the kids birthday parties, and now with my dad being sick, it's a little tricky these past years, but I will do it again. Hopefully next year. They are a celebration of how much I love this time of year.
