What began as a weekly post became a bi-weekly post, and now it looks as though it has fallen to every three weeks…so we’ll just call it a random Thursday post. I’m okay with that…
This week marked the official end of summer and the beginning of fall – the week that my morning commute to work got busier yet I was still thankful…because it was not I who was going back to school. It’s these days that I love. Ask me what my favourite season is and I’ll say…summer…hmm, no, fall….well I really like winter because I love Christmas…and then there’s spring. Right. As it says in Ecclesiastes, “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” So the thing is, I love the changing seasons, the fresh start of a new season, and the fact that we get to experience all four, living here in the Northwest.
At the moment, that means fall. And fall means Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Lattes, getting cozy in sweaters and boots, brightly colored leaves and drives into the mountains, and not feeling guilty about spending a day off indoors, as the rain pours outside on the window. Oh, and butternut squash. And Thanksgiving.
What’s your favourite thing about fall?
