Happy Autumnal Equinox Day, everyone! Or, in other words, HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL, Y’ALL!
So, my neck of the woods is still looking like Summer, but the cooler mornings and nights are helping feed my excitement for my favorite season of all time: Fall! What’s there to not love about Fall?! The leaves on trees changing their colors and fluttering to the ground, the cool breeze sweeping over your skin while it’s being kissed by the sun, getting to dress in a mix of summer and winter layers. If I had it my way the start of the year would be the Autumnal Equinox. As a child, my plan was to have a home in different areas of the world and live in those homes only during the fall season of that area. I had planned that I would live my life in an eternal chase for Fall.
The start of Fall also means the start of the holiday season and very special dates! Halloween, NaNoWriMo, Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year’s, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, and eventually ending it all with Fourth of July! Additionally, I get to move into my new place soon! *twirls in a tiny pile of leaves*
How can you not love Fall when it leads to such exciting days ahead?!
