This week's color pick is Bittersweet. It aptly describes my
feelings for Autumn. I have a difficult time saying goodbye
to the carefree days of summer. Its my favorite time of the year.
To me, everything about it screams freedom. The girls are
out of school, we are without much of a schedule to adhere to,
we can just run out the door...no need to think about a coat,
hats, mittens, boots or scarves. Nature is so plush and colorful.
I love it and I miss it so much already.
However, there truly is something special about Autumn. Though it's hard
to see summer come to an end, the slight chill in the air, the thought of
all things apple and the now changing colors on the trees elicit a
certain "feeling". I love a fall hike with "that" smell of fallen leaves,
pumpkins by my door, mums blooming, corn mazes, soups and cider.
I only wish we could fast forward straight through winter and move on to spring.
But alas, that will not happen. At least not here in PA.
Oh well, I plan on enjoying fall as long as it lasts and will then start
my countdown 'til spring. :D
