SEASONS



Fall, totally where my head is right now. Wishing time to pass quickly is foolish, it's fleeting by nature. But fall is my absolute favorite time of year, and this year in particular, I'm ready for the seasons to change. This summer has been full of big changes and hard work, both personally with work and for our little new abode. We bought the house last fall with intentions of fixing it up and selling it in 2-3 years. So I thought in an effort to enjoy the house for as long as we're here, we should pound out a bunch of renovations so we could enjoy it before we move. I still stand behind that thought, but I am tired. We finished about 80% of the work this summer. I am over long, hot, sweaty summer days. The impending seasonal change into fall means slower paced days, trips to the mountains and being at home by the fire. I'm a homebody, and I think fall and winter let me be me. I don't feel the push to partake in every social event and use every last second of daylight to work outside in the yard. I enjoy using the cooler months to reflect and just be. And after selling our house last year, moving into a rental, and moving again into the new house, I am so looking forward to slowing down and enjoying the simpler things. A fire in the fireplace, comfy clothes and baking sans the sounds of the television in the background, just music and a crackling fire...
