Recently, I woke up early. My window fan was drawing in the cold morning air. I heard the faintest sound of raindrops tapping against my window.
The clouds were hanging low, and the air smelled like damp leaves.
It was as if Fall were whispering a secret to the world, that it was almost here.
I just lay there, breathing in the heavenly scent of earth, and coolness. The signal that the book of seasons were about to turn the page.
A list of things I love about Fall:
1. Damp mornings, and cool days. The sky brilliantly blue, set off by high white clouds, touched with gray.
2. Pumpkins, gourds, squash, oh my. I stopped at my favorite little grocery store (Trader Joe's, gotta love them!) and they had bins of pumpkins. My heart skipped a beat at the sight of orange, and fall flowers in buckets, and piles of winter squash for sale.
