30 August 2007
My absolute favorite season of all is fall. My birthday is in November, Ashley was born in October, my grandpa and uncle both have November birthdays and my dad was born in September. I have always LOVED the start of school and the smell of a new box of crayons.... oh my.
That being said, I also hate to rush the end of summer. Fall is such a short season and I do dread winter, especially since I commute to work every day. Soooo, even though many of my friends begin to decorate for fall in August, I have the distinct urge to hold on to summer, to make the warm weather last for as long as it can.
September 1 marks the time when I can get out my fall things and begin to enjoy the season. I have wreaths, candles, decorative items and the infamous fall village to place this year. I am eager to see what other blogsites do for fall, and perhaps even borrow an idea or two...
These photos were taken last year. The highway scene was taken between JC and Columbia on the bluffs where the mountain goats are said to live. The single tree photo is from Stephens College, where Ashley attends. Both speak "fall" to me, loud and clear!
