Okay, Fall. You're Here. Let's Do This.

(pic taken last November, at the Franconia-Springfield Metro station)

The key to Fall is admitting that it is here, and enjoying it.
This is not easy for me. It's harder for my husband.
We are both Summer-lovers.
But, I do love the colors of the leaves, all things pumpkin-spiced, the fact that both of our birthdays are in Fall, and I love being able to wear a hoodie and flip flops at the same time.

I don't look forward to changing the closets out. Both of us have twice as many Spring/Summer clothes than Fall/Winter clothes.
Oh well.
Black pants erry'day it is.

A bonus thing about THIS Fall? Election Day. More importantly, the Day After the Election.  You know, when I will get my life back.
Looking forward to that.
And Thanksgiving.
And, hopefully this Fall will be WAY better than last Fall, which happened to - um - suck - to put it eloquently.

I made my first batch of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies today. Cheers.

Hey! I forgot about pumpkin signifying Fall. For me, I'll eat anything pumpkin all year round. :)
