Love Letter to Fall

How can your mouth not fall open in wonder when the sky looks like this in your neighborhood? This afternoon the wind and the clouds blew in, and it feels like fall. I am loving the softer light and the windswept streets.

While I can’t {or shouldn’t} complain about the endless sunny skies that make up a summer here in Davis, California, sometimes you just crave something a little different—a little change in mood and atmosphere.

Fall is my favorite season {like so many people}! Cooler weather and breezes and leaves on the ground just make me feel calm and filled with simple joy and new beginnings. I think the new beginnings come from all those years I spent in school—fall will forever and always symbolize starting a new year for me—I get excited just thinking about all those kids and their new backpacks and pencils. Fall is also the lead up to so many great holidays, and nights curled up inside, and warm cuddle clothing and . . . so many lovely things. I love how the air smells a bit smokey and sweet. How you get to start wearing more layers of clothes. How the blankets on my bed become necessary again. Oh, fall, I love you!

What do you love about fall?

    One thing I love about the fall:
    the Japanese Maple tree within
    view from my halcyon balcony.
