I am in love...
With Fall! There is just something about Fall that fills me with joy.
Maybe it's the colors that Fall brings, they are so romantic! These colors always remind me of the love and warmth of family gatherings. Fall hues also remind me of a cozy fire; it's flames casting a glow over the room, burnished cheeks and sparkling eyes.
It could be the memories that make me love Fall so; memories of walks through crackling leaves, with the promise of hot chocolate upon returning home. There is nothing I love more than to feel the warmth of the sun my back, and a chill on my nose.
*I wonder what it is about Fall that makes us suddenly crave pumpkin and cinnamon, and marshmallows and yams.*
I often fantasize in the heat of summer about how the sun seems to light a Fall tree from within. I long for lingering sunsets, and the elegant shadows that trees make in the waning light. I can imagine my sweaters waking from their hibernation, lumbering from their cardboard dens; and the southern migration of winter shoes from my attic, down to their secluded nests of our closets.
The changing leaves mean many things to me, and I couldn't ever choose one favorite thing about Fall. I love it all.
