Autumn Gift Exchange
As the crisp air of fall forces me to think about putting away the flip flops, a sadness sinks in. I can't stand letting go of summer. I try to hold on to it until I don't have a choice..usually around the time of the 1st frost some time in early to mid-October. Once I do let go, it's full steam ahead, because I adore fall. Picking out pumpkins with our kids, decorating with mums and cabbages and kale...raking and raking and raking the leaves from our 2 huge maples...crisp air that lets you pull up the comforter at night or lets you throw on your favorite snuggly cardigan to take a walk...the smell of neighbor's fireplaces, picking out costumes...I love it all.
So...as much as I hate...ok...we don't say that in our house...dislike saying goodbye to summer...LET'S CELEBRATE AUTUMN!!!
