i don't know about you, but when september rolls around, i think of leaves changing colors, cooler days and even cooler nights. apple cider and the smells of cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg floating in the air. guess what folks. i live in the south. my dream of the perfect crisp air and smell of the first wood being burned in the neighbor's fireplace [i say neighbor because i don't have one -- next house, yes, it's on the list] i just love the smell of burning wood. mmmm mmmm gives me the warm fuzzies. so, in honor of yearning for the cooler weather i will be posting in a "fall" color...burnt orange. love this color. love.it.
i get happy knowing the holiday's are just around the corner. kid's parties at school are coming up, fun festivities will be happening soon. all the time to meet other parents and hang out with new people and parents we haven't seen since last year. it's just an all around fun time. except the shopping. i do not enjoy the shopping. i'd rather just skip that. crowds bother me. a lot. like a lot a lot. to the point i get sick a lot. gives me the heebie jeebie's just thinking about it right now. i get the sweats and nauseated. i guess i get clausterphobic. i bet i would do horribly in a big crowded city like new york. i've always wanted to visit there too.
so, although i live in the south. and it seems that the heat will never leave, it will one day do just that. and when it does, the cooler air will take it's place and i will then be pulling out my scarves and wool coat and boots and i just can't wait. you just have no idea. i'm looking forward to the day that i can put my makeup on and not be sweating by the time i am either heading out of the house or even before that. [mind you, i do have pcos -- if you have this syndrome you know what i'm talking about -- so i am hot all.of.the.time]
so i leave you with this. are you ready for the season to change? is it just me or does it seem that this summer has been the longest summer e-v-e-r???
