autumn

when the bold branches
bid farewell to rainbow leaves -
welcome wool sweaters.
- b. cybrill

fall is here. this morning i woke to a brisk breeze wafting in through my window, and as i walked from my car to my office, shielding my eyes from the bright sunlight, i folded my arms into my chest to create a little extra warmth. even though i say summer is my favorite season, there is a soft spot in my heart for autumn. if only it weren’t followed by winter!

love it. love love love it. love the apples, love the leaves, love the fireplace burning (what fireplace? not my own, clearly, but i'm sure the ones being lit all over the suburbs smell divine), love it all. :)
