It’s actually here (!) and it couldn’t be more perfectly announced. Outside my window a gray drizzle is falling slowly, coating the leaves with a silvery shine. It’s like autumn’s equivalent of snow, and very nearly as romantic, in my opinion. Inside, my room smells of spices and oils, and a big cuppa mint tea is calling my name. I can’t wait to dig out my flannels and boots and cozy sweaters. Ah yes, fall has truly arrived, not only by my wishful thinking, but actually by the calendar, and my soul can breathe deeply.
Have a happy first day of fall!
