Hello, Fall!

No longer can I deny that a new season is upon us.  The first day of fall has arrived on the calendar.  Summertime, which I have grown to enjoy with every ounce of my being, has officially come to an end for 2011.  Playing off of a Dr. Suess quote, my facebook status for yesterday read, "Not crying because summer is over, but smiling because it has been a great one!!!"     
As I spent last weekend in Indiana with my family, I saw hints of fall that will not be evident in Georgia for many more weeks.  I was reminded of the beauty of the fall season.  This must be the reason why my favorite time of the year used to be fall.  Hands down, it won above all the rest.  Fall in the midwest is simply beautiful. 
My heart softened toward fall's arrival with the reminder of its beauty.   
Clean, crisp air. 
Colorful leaves. 
Harvest time. 
Popcorn and apple cider. 
Jeans and hoodies.
Hayrides with friends. 
Pumpkin yumminess.
Warm memories, good times, remembered.
Hello, Fall!  


  1. While Fall is not my favorite season, I do enjoy the beautiful colors and all the fun outdoor activities that the season brings.

Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
