It's Coming!!

I'm getting very excited about AUTUMN: that great, great reward for having survived through the smells, the sweating, and the skin rashes of the oft-celebrated season called summer. It is finally, nearly over. Mere days away from September, I've already noticed the subtle changes: the slowly waning daylight hours, and a slightly cool, fresh feeling in the air. Perhaps it is a sign that I spent too many years in school, but as September approaches, I begin to make plans and feel ambitious again. My mind, dulled by the August sun, smog, and heat, reawakens.

Things to look forward to (in no particular order):

1. WOOL. Wool sweaters, coats, gloves, skirts, tights! And especially scarves. Scarves for everyone!

2. Red wine.

3. Hot chocolate / Hot apple cider.

4. Pumpkins, carved or baked.

5. Hearty, meaty soups.

6. Staying in and watching movies.

7. Celine and Burberry Fall 2010-inspired wardrobe improvements.

8. Bike rides.

9. Falling leaves.

10. Two turkey-themed holidays in three months.

Goodbye summer!!!!
