Fox and Bear like sweaters too

DSC_0060

Put away your whites and start sipping Chai Lattés - Autumn is knocking at the door and wants to come in for Banana Loaf (and judging by the amount of brown bananas in my freezer, it's gonna be a LONG season people). The kiddies have stuffed their pencil cases, the forecast calls for rain, and I officially don't care whether or not I have a sun tan anymore.

But you know, I don't really mind that summer has come to an end for now. I like Halloween and pumpkin pie and crunchy leaves too much to mourn the warm season for any length of time. I love that day, the Equinox, when the season officially changes and the sun's passage is marked in the sky. You notice a chill on the breeze, less people at the beach on a Sunday, and a general golden hue. You know a familiar change has come, persistent in its subtlety. An ending dependant on a beginning, and a beginning dependant on an ending.

Welcome Fall, and all your cozies.

I'm a fan of Fall and all that it has to offer. I just hate how it leads into Winter (and ice and snow and cold wet grey days). I wouldn't mind if glorious Fall would just be shouldered by summer and spring. That would be grand!

Andrea,
with you on the dreaded winter part. Take comfort in the fact that egg nog lattes will warm us up on dreary days!

Beautiful post Sarah. Along with Easter, fall somehow reminds me of you too. Must be the new girl at school memory. That and your long sweater and tights--so fashion forward and aghast!-no pants!
