I can't be too sure, but I think that Autumn has unofficially arrived. I cannot tell you how happy I am that I am saying this and it is only September! I was able to pull out this bobble-y sweater today and just felt so cozy in it. I have found myself walking the streets of Philly listening to good fall tunes like Fleet Foxes and Billie Holiday, while drinking a hot drink several times this week and feeling totally comfortable in autumn's breeze. I definitely like Philly exponentially better in this weather. Can't help it, I just get so happy this time of year!
It's a season when cooler morning air kisses our cheeks, the scent of fresh mint wafts along river banks and leaves turn into canvases of yellow, orange, red and rust. These are welcome signs after months of Valley heat. Autumn, with all its splendor, calls us back outdoors. To rivers. To the foothills. To hiking and biking trails. To vineyards and the high country for the fall colors. These are the reasons we enjoy living here.
