For the first time this year, autumn was in the air.
Part of me relished the coolness. I felt the exhilaration that always comes with the changing of seasons. Fall is one of my favorite times of year with its fiery colors, its crispness, its cool evenings that beckon sweaters and bonfires, friends and music. And, of course, its wardrobe. My boots have been getting lonely in the back of the closet all summer…but I’m not quite ready for them.
As I stood in the driveway, breathing in the fresh crisp air, I felt myself resisting. I wasn’t prepared to give summer up yet.
So I did what I always do when I want to make myself feel better. I made a list.
My end-of-summer list
Make wine-and-berry popsicles and eat in the hot afternoon sun
Then, I'll be ready to go digging for those boots.
