Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall…????

Sweater weather has begun. I love fall; the smells, the changing color of the leaves; the sharp crispness of the air. The temperature fluctuates back and forth with the cooler evenings perfect for an outdoor fire. Autumn is a feast for the senses!

There are pumpkins and apple cider and lest we forget caramel apples! In the past I struggled to make caramel apples at home. No matter what I tried the caramel always pooled at the base of the apple with the barest amount clinging to the sides topped by a small pool at the stem where the stick protruded. Thankfully, grocery stores wised up and sell them ready made wrapped in wax paper.

Don’t get me wrong I love summer and spring and winter; I’m a child of the seasons finding the joy of every season. Though come Summer I’ll tell you that I’m a Child of the Sun. Even with the passing of time I still view the changing of the seasons with a child’s eye. I feel the pull of summer’s invite to swim and bike; the magic of autumn’s leaf piles; winter’s thrill of sledding and skating; and spring’s promise of fragrant flowers.

But fall whispers in my ear with promises of wonderful things to come. It wraps around me offering up the possibilities of unparalleled change. For me personally, I find the transition from summer into fall a somewhat meditative time; a period of reflection, a pause to contemplate what’s next and where to go. And this fall is especially meaningful as Katie & I share our journey and how we started over…

Hello Fall! ????
