fall days.






I love the cool crispness of fall. Colder days - some dark, some sunny, most windy. The crunch of leaves underfoot. The frost on the rooftops, the birds busy at the birdfeeder. Boys layered up to keep warm. Those red rosy cheeks when they come in from the cold. The smell of outside lingering in hair, on clothes. The rich aroma of fresh cider on the stovetop, ready to warm them. Yes, life is good.

Denise, I love your celebration of fall. It makes me want to click my heels three times and show up in your corner of the world, just to jump in those leaves!

Here, it's getting warmer and warmer. I love waking and finding I don't need to put a sweater on. Yesterday, we got into our car and it was baking hot, and the kids were saying, Too Hot! Too Hot! I rolled down the windows, basked in the warm wind flying in as I drove, and smiled.

Happy fall, Denise!
