Hello, Autumn, we meet at last. I’ve been waiting for you.
I am an Autumn baby, so this time of year has always been dear to my heart. It starts to get chilly and foggy, but you can still go out for a stroll and sip on a mug of hot cocoa or chai tea. There has been so much to look forward to this autumn – I can’t wait for our annual trip to the pumpkin patch, watching scary movies, and cuddling by candlelight.
The days are growing shorter, so candles and soft light are my preference during the longer evening hours. This is also the time of year when grape harvest begins, so my fiancé will be working longer hours in order to press the grapes and start the wine making process. I always love to visit him after I’m done with work to see how the process is coming along. This year, it will give me lots of time to work out and work on getting ready for our wedding that’s coming up this April.
Autumn is crisp and fresh and brings in the harvest, and it truly is a magical time of year. As Raquel Franco once wrote, “And the sun took a step back, the leaves lulled themselves to sleep and Autumn was awakened.” I’m so very excited for Autumn to awaken! Happy September, everyone, and I hope you have a wonderful autumn!
