I always think that summer is my favorite season. And I guess, in many ways it is (skirts, bare feet, sunshine, long days, short nights, open windows, flowers, freedom). But in the past few years I’ve come to love and appreciate autumn more and more. I think it’s in the light. Everything looks magically lit in autumn, even on the rainy days. It’s the warm glow and the colorful leaves. And, it’s not only the lighting. It’s crunching leaves and boots and wool sweaters and crisp air that feels great when you breathe it in in giant sips. It’s bonfires (though this year we’ve been so extremely busy that camping is just a dream) and hayrides, apple pie, AND it’s my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving. Indira and I just took a nice little walk in the woods and she loved the movement of the leaves and the sounds of wind on the crisp branches. I think she also liked the colors, but her nose got too cold so we made it short. Cheers to autumn!

Aaaaand, coming next: freezing cold weather brrrrr, snow (and lots of it – poconos!), hibernating bear, mittens, hot cocoa and Christmas trees, but I am totally getting ahead of myself.
