If I had to pick a season to be my favorite, it would be fall. The choice would be a little difficult, yes, because there are so many things about each season that I truly enjoy. But it’s the fall that I have a good skip to my step, and where I feel my soul has the best verve.
I love the warm days and the cool nights; the bright colors of the trees and the spray of mums on porches. I can get lost in the colors of the fall’s twilight, and I relish the inspiration this time of day gives me.
With school back in full swing, and sporting events almost every night; open projects to complete and new opportunities to entertain, life stays hectic. But the beauty and the smells of fall bring a welcome calm and excitement.
I wanted to welcome the season properly, so I brought in some fall to our porches. And as you know, we spend a lot of precious time on our porches. Surrounded by mums, pumpkins and gourds, sitting in a rocker, and wrapped in a flannel blanket certainly can be the perfect salve. Even if the escape is brief, the time is needed.
It’s beautiful watching fall unfold. And invigorating.
And truly my favorite time of the year.
