I tell ya, with all this back to school talk and the 90 degree temps we keep experiencing, I've caught myself thinking about fall more and more lately. I even went to weather.com the other day to see when it typically starts cooling off around here. (Keep in mind I haven't spent a summer in the south in a long time so I needed a reminder.) If we were in Jersey (where we lived for the past 4 summers) cooler temps would be around the corner. Not-so-much down here. At least the evenings and mornings will start to be more pleasant soon!
Fall really is an exciting time of year for me. I could stay outside all day long when the leaves are pretty and the air is crisp. Ah, heaven. Just thinking about it puts me in a good mood. But I have to say, I wouldn't appreciate fall as much if it weren't for these hot, humid summers. As miserable as they are, they pave the way for some serious relief and thankfulness come autumn.
