Jump In The Leaves...






As I reflect on the past year I am amazed at how many things have changed in my life in such a short time. I am very grateful for all my blessings and for this little "jewel" of a home. As the sun began to set this evening and the air began to cool down thoughts of autumn drifted into my mind. I'm saddened that summer has just ended but autumn has always been my favorite time of year. I have always loved the crisp night air, taking evening walks with my dog and feeling the leaves crunch beneath my feet. Autumn is like a new beginning for me, I think it’s because of childhood when we would anticipate going back to school each September. I'd be nervous and excited at the same but it was the start of a new year and I always loved that. Although summer has ended I’m sure we will have many days of “Indian” summer in October. I am going to enjoy every moment of the changing seasons. I love the thought of "Mother Nature" taking her paint brush to the leaves. I can't wait to see her painted canvas in the mountain peaks and in her fields of gold. I want to ramble upon an old country road and happen upon a little road side stand filled with pumpkins and gourds. I want to eat apple cider donuts, drink in the autumn air and walk amongst the rainbow colored leaves. I hope you are enjoying this time of year too!
