I realized something today...fall is coming.
I saw a leaf fall out of a tree.
It was brown and dead.
And as I watched it drift to the ground I got really excited! I can only describe it as an anticipation for the unknown. A little strange, but about 4 times every year I feel the same way. I love being at the doorstep of a new season, it is kind of like a mini new year to me. I look forward to the changing weather and variety in temperature and scenery. It seems like just when I am getting used to the weather patterns, they change, and it's great. Especially this coming season, I am moving to a new house, I have a new job, new room mates, new ward, and new people to meet!
I have never been able to say which season is my favorite...but I am thinking about all the things that make me love fall and (for now) I may choose to declare it as #1! It definitely wins for best colors, and call me crazy, but I even like the chill in the air that bites your cheeks when you step outside...don't tell anyone but I am even a tinsy bit excited for the first snowfall....shhh!
