I'm Free, Free Falling...



I have had that song stuck in my head since we sang it during club on Sunday!

Happy First Day of FALL!!!

Can you believe that summer is actually over? It just feels like the other day I was so excited to break out the shorts and sundresses. Trudging down to the pool every evening just to get some sun, relax, read and swim a few laps before dinner. Planning vacation with both families, that are now just memories. Where did summer go?

Maybe it seems shorter because most of June was chilly and overcast. I don't know what the reason, but now it's time to enjoy a new season. I am a summer lover 110%, but there is something about Fall that's magical. Maybe is the chilly nights, where you can wear jeans and a hoodie, or that you can now snuggle up on the couch, under a blanket with your love. (Okay, I'm guilty of using a blanket in the summer too, but Kevin is mister hot blood and won't even come close to one). I love watching the leaves change colors (but cry when they fall). Love hot apple cider, carving pumpkins, and bonfires.

It's a bittersweet time, saying goodbye to my precious Summer and sun, but at least I don't mind welcoming Fall in with open arms. Winter on the other hand...
But I still have a while before I have to worry about that dreaded time. :-)

I actually prefer spring over fall....because spring leads to summer...and fall...well, it leads to the "W" word. but, I do agree...there are some good parts ;)
