. . .
I could never live anywhere that didn’t have Fall as one of the seasons. I’ll gladly take blizzards in the winter, and sticky hot humidity in the summer, if it means I get to experience the in-between.
The past few days when I’ve gone outside, it’s been… chilly. Not cold, but enough to wear layers and long sleeves and still feel perfectly comfortable. Taking long walks is more appealing than usual, and I feel so lucky to live in a town that is beautiful and full of such history.
This morning I am positively giddy about what this change of the seasons will bring:
- butternut squash, pumpkin, apple and cinnamon everything
- creepy 1970’s books
- CARDIGANS AND BOOTS!
- the way orange and yellow and brown leaves smell
- pumpkin patches with little shops that sell apple cider
- apple cider in general
- neutral milk hotel records
- the 4million festivals in the Lehigh Valley
- a good excuse to have a backyard firepit any night
- reading on the couch while Ryan watches a football game (a display of domesticity that I love and count on)
NOTE: Literally as I’m on the sidewalk typing this, a car pulls up by the curb and yells out “Save the Kales!”, and here is is my former internet-only friend Amy! She’s been a reader for a long time, and I’m not sure if we first bonded over this blog or her excellent choice of eyewear, but nonetheless, we finally got to meet and MAN IT’S REALLY JUST THE BEST DAY! (Hi again, Amy!)
