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.
