‘AUTUMN ON THE COAST‘ COLLECTION NOW AVAILABLE.
Unlike many of my friends, fall is not my favorite season.
Mid-September my friend Susan puts on a cozy sweater and
heads to Starbucks for a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Buys an rusty-orange mum, and those little squash things that look like baby pumpkins. Gets a candle named ‘Cinnamon Bun’ or ‘Pumpkin Pie.’
Me, I refuse. At least until mid-October, and now November is right around the corner.
It can’t be fall yet.
I love the summer and I’m not giving in. I still want to wear my flip-flops. And drink coconut water. My house is full of male football lunatics who love the fall and want me to start cooking chili the day after Labor Day.
I get there eventually.
I realize that it IS nice to have cooler days. And I like boots, sweaters, and jeans. And the smell of a real fire in the fireplace. Unlike my kids, I ENJOYED buying school supplies.
So why the kicking and screaming into fall? Shorter days, the colder weather? Probably.
But I do like way it feels like a fresh start.
So, I get myself a new planner and art supplies. I put on flannel pajama bottoms and a college sweatshirt and curl up and watch Netflix. I have to admit, it’s kinda cozy. And peaceful (until the football lunatics return). But I feed them chili and it gets quiet for a little while.
Maybe I just move slowly and adapt to change a little reluctantly?
