I’ll admit it. My enthusiasm for Fall, my favorite season, came much later than it normally would. The summer sped by so very fast that it left me spinning, completely unsure of where I was or how I got there. But all it took was a few days of that rolling coastal Autumn mist, and I was all caught up in the romance and the comfort and coziness it brought to every corner of our home. I mean, what else could transform the lowly spiderweb into a such a stunning lace shawl dripping with jewels?
Now that the frost is just beginning to set around the edges of the property in the early mornings and those glorious drizzly and dreary days have settled into a more permanent pattern in the forecast, I’m full-out in love with Fall again. So I set out to welcome the shift in season with open arms and rubber boots and a properly decked-out porch. (Is it weird to say decked-out about a porch? Should I say porched-out?)
Bring on the cider, carmel apples, wooly socks and sweaters. The porch, the door, and myself… we’re ready!
