So, it’s officially Autumn. Kiss Summer a fond farewell and look forward to Mother Nature’s magic. The leaves turning wild, fiery yellow, orange, and red make me smile. Shuffling and kicking through crispy fallen leaves makes me young again… if even for a few moments. Raking leaves? Well, that makes this stubborn Yankee glad I live in the deep South now. But wherever you may be, inhale deeply and enjoy the warmth of an early Autumn breeze. That frigid chill of Winter will arrive far too quickly, so get on out there and enjoy these lovely days.
“I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.”
— Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804 – 1864)
