The Smell of Fall

Topic: Uncategorized| 2 Comments »

I love the fall.
I look forward to watching the leaves turn red, orange, and yellow. I look forward to watching them fall. I look forward to watching the wind caress them and blow them all over the yard. I look forward to raking them into giant piles.
Fall seems very peaceful to me, it seems wise.
I adore pumpkins of all colors and sizes. I can never have enough of them around the house.
I cant wait till David takes me to buy our hay bail.
I love the smell of fall. I love the way the the cold mornings nibble on my nose. The magic in the air. I take a deep breath. I want it to permeate my whole body. Every single cell even in the tips of my toes. It calms me.
I love going on walks in the fall and getting just cold enough that I can feel my cheeks and nose turning red. I love coming home to the warmth of the house and the smell of apple cider, pumpkin pie, hearty soup, and beef stew.
I live for the first time I open the storage containers of fall decorations and the smell of pumpkin, cinnamon, and cranberry candles that has been locked inside for 12 months rushes out. I just stand above the boxes sucking in the moment. I am so caught up in it. I want to stand there forever.
Decorating for Halloween and Thanksgiving is a sacred experience for me. Spiders and turkeys. Gosh, I love them.
I got married on the September 23–the first day of fall.

    I am totally with you on the Fall being the best season. It has always been my favorite. There is something in the air that makes it feel magic.

    There’s no such thing as fall in Phoenix, and it makes us mighty sad.
