Even though Fall doesn't officially start for another week, I was ready to bust out some Fall decor tonight. Granted, it's still an unbearably hot 92 degrees each day, but I was hoping that this would help put me in the Fall spirit. Since moving from the Chicago area five years ago, I miss many things; my family & friends, the comradery of cheering for the sports teams I love & FALL!
Oh how I miss wearing cozy sweaters & my beloved scarves!
And visiting a pumpkin patch, walking through a corn maize & sipping steamy apple cider...
Or feeling the refreshingly cool, crisp air on my face & the smell of burning leaves, or opening windows during the day & enjoying the beautifully fresh air & cuddling under the warm blankets on a chilly night.
And the sight of the changing leaves set against an amazingly blue, clear sky.
But as much as I absolutely adored the Fall while living in Illinois, I also felt a sense of sadness since I knew Winter was lurking right around the corner. So, yes, I loathe the seemingly endless heat of a Florida summer, but I certainly won't be complaining when it's 70 degrees in February!
Happy almost Fall to all!
