View from my Window

Although it's depressing to think about the short days and cold weather of winter, I love fall: the vibrant colors, the dry, cool weather, the return of routine. Autumnal hues are warm and healing-- the reds, oranges, yellows-- all fiery before the drab browns and dirty white of winter that follow the first pristine snowfall. If only we could hang on to fall a bit longer, but the brevity makes me appreciate it all the more.

Amen I love the Fall. Love love love it. Makes me want to bake and rake and flake. Not sure about the flake but rhymes with the others. It is gorgeous out there. I especially love in the evening when you can smell someone has a fire burning mmmmm cozy
