season of the senses

A chrysanthemum for you on this first day of fall. A gingersnap, too, and cranberry ginger ale to whet your whistle. Though the leaves are a lingering green and we're still waiting for sweater weather, the almanac tells us autumn is officially here. Soon we'll be putting a pumpkin on the doorstep and an apple pie in the oven, wearing jackets the same russets and golds that the trees are wearing. When is the sky ever so blue, the air this clear? Only for a few brilliant, cinnamon sprinkled months each year. Enjoy every minute.

I love fall and I have been loving so many of your recent posts. Princess Problems, A Nice View and Cute as a Bug all resonated deeply with me. Thanks for for my daily dose of inspiration!
