I miss long walks outside. I miss feeling a chill in the air. I miss drinking my coffee hot. I miss opening the bedroom windows while we sleep and huddling under the covers. Not only do I have our normal fall memories to look forward to but this year, we have a whole new set of fall clothes in the house.
Pink polka dots. And ruffles. I die.
I want to see Lila's eyes grow wide at the changing of the fall leaves. I want to see her roll around in the grass in a sweatshirt. I cannot wait to see her smile as she touches the baby chicks at the NC State Fair. This year's fall will smell so much sweeter than I ever could have imagined.
I cannot endure to waste anything as precious
as autumn sunshine by staying in the house.
So I spend almost all the daylight hours
in the open air.
