Happy Fall!

Happy First day of Autumn!


Well, Autumn has officially arrived and it's a beautiful crisp day here in KC with temperatures in the low 70's!
Soon the air will be filled with the smell of smoke coming from people's fireplaces, crisp autumn leaves and weather that makes it ok to wear a hoodie and shorts at the same time!
I Heart Autumn

The smells.... fresh pumpkin bread cooking in the oven, cinnamon, crisp air, bonfires, roasted marshmallows...
The sights... scarlet red, burnt orange, goldenrod, chocolate brown cascading leaves, fresh butternut squash and chubby pumpkins ripe for carving, golden sunlight...
The sounds... the crunching chorus of leaves crushed beneath my feet, the screams of children jumping into piles of leaves, the whistle of the winds blowing the leaves from their branches...
The feeling... that amazing feeling of beauty and color surrounding you, ready to take off on the wind at a moments notice, an icy cold breeze brushing your cheek while the sun is still there to warm you up, the warmth of a blanket after a nice hot bath....fall is all around us!

Tell me a story... What does fall mean to you!?
