i'm ready for lightweight blouses layered under warm sweaters, jeans, booties and scarves.
i'm ready for tights and wool skirts, capes, gloves and hats.
i'm ready for shorter days and the romance of san francisco glowing in city lights.
i'm ready for evenings sitting outside peet's with a cup of steaming hot milk flavoured with honey and a generous sprinkling of cinnamon.
i'm ready for days of football and pots of chili simmering on the stovetop.
i'm ready for the fragrance of autumn lingering in the air and the sound of leaves crunching underfoot.
i'm ready for more nights in, cozied up on the sofa in a homemade afghan, with toast, tea, movies and cooking shows.
here's to fall--my favourite season.
f. scott fitgerald said it best: life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.
fall, please hurry and get here. i miss and adore you.
