The smile that wont fade

Monday, September 22, 2014

Ah, this weekend. Today, I am happy. The weather screams of fall: brisk, cool air. The smell of leaves changing. The feel of a dull sun on my lightly wind blown face. The feel of autumn. I love the midwest in the fall. I cant get enough of the colors, the smells, and the tastes. Apples and cider. Caramel apples and pumpkin everything. The colors of burnt orange, deep reds, and bright yellows cascading the tree-lines, making driving anywhere a site of pure joy.

Yes, days like today, I love Ohio. Days leading into October are quite a gem. It makes me really happy to wear a scarf, and a sweater and drink a hot coffee to take off the chill of the day.

Oh, and its football season. My favorite season by far. Chili cookoffs, tailgating, fall beers. Man, this time of year just really makes me happy!!

Ah, and its my birthday in a week. Hello 32. I'm embracing coming into my thirties with grace and I dont mind getting older.....as long as I dont look it or feel it, that is all that matters. It is simply a number!


Happy Monday all! Peace and love.

    I love fall too for the very same reasons that you do ! We are not quite that far into fall ..more like late summer at the moment in northern Illinois.
    My birthday is the day before Halloween !

    Embrace every moment as it comes! There is something enlightening about everything!

    I too LOVE Fall!!! Wish this season was longer!!! Here in Canada, it lasts about a month, if we are lucky before the snow starts to loom near! I hope it lasts well into November this year!!! emoticon emoticon One can hope!!!

    Enjoy your 30's, they are the blessed years that you have both wisdom and youth! :)

    Yes, a number indeed. We hit 90's yesterday here in beautiful Oregon, but today is suppose to be mid 70's with a 20% chance of rain which we have had very little of the last few months. Fall must really be here now. I hope your week is great and enjoy the 30's. My daughter will be 28 in December so we shall see how that hits her since for some reason 27 was a tearful one. emoticon
