I Love Fall? I Love Fall!


I have never been someone who looks forward to fall.
I associate the season with football, school, and cold weather--things I dislike the most.
However, I have been having a huge love affair with fall this year.
The streets through our neighborhood are lined with red and yellow trees and there are pumpkins on each stoop. There hasn't been a day in the past three weeks where it was below 60 and I am truly grateful.

Coco and I have been doing a lot of walking (mainly because I love looking at all the adorable houses). We were shuffling through the leaves on the street yesterday, there was no wind, and the sun would peak out from the clouds every 5 minutes.
I was truly present in that moment.
All I could do was smile, take a deep breathe, and thank God for letting me enjoy his creation....and then I yelled at Coco for peeing in the neighbors yard.

It has been a wonderful season.

P.S. If you need some good music to enhance your fall experience, listen to all of the above:
Neil Young, Karen Dalton, Ryan Adams, Tim Hardin, Nick Drake, & The Avett Brothers.

'Til next time,
J.
