I can hardly wait for fall... the colors, the smells, the weather. I am longing for the cooler weather, the crispness in the air and fires crackling in the fireplace. My nostrils are craving the smells of apples, pumpkins and cinnamon. My taste buds are anticipating the first taste of a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks. I am excited to see the wind swirling the leaves on the ground. I love the shorter days and the longer nights. I love the clothes - cozy sweaters and jeans and boots. I've already started bringing out the fall decorations - I can't wait the extra three weeks until the Autumn equinox. There is a street a few blocks away and the leaves on every tree change color. The leaves on the tree in my front yard change to brown, but on this street they change to the fall colors of orange, yellow, and crimson. It's a street I find myself driving down over and over again in the fall and as it nears winter I almost expect for it to start snowing. To me there is something so magical about fall. I can't pinpoint exactly what it is but it is stirring inside me.
love these place mats from crate & barrel
