Fallin' in love with Fall

Every day for about the past two weeks I have made mention of the fact that I absolutely cannot wait for Fall to arrive. The weather around here has dipped into slightly warm with a cool breeze blowing. It's been almost perfect! I hate hot weather with the bees and the mosquitos; I must confess without shame that I hate summer. My favorite time of each year is about to be upon us and I am so excited! Fall brings much cooler temperatures, which allows for more opportunities for snuggling with my hubby. There's nothing more comfy than putting on a slightly-bigger-than-you sweatshirt and a pair of jeans! Fall also gives me the chance to be outside where I can actually enjoy all that God has created.

It also brings the season of the year I love most- preChristmas and then all the way through Christmas. Almost everyone is in a constant state of excitement, leading up to the holidays. I have a true excuse for inviting both sides of our families to get together over lots and lots of traditional comfort foods (Thanksgiving!). Then the real fun begins!

Sigh... I can't wait!

I beg to differ on the best time of the year, summer, by far is the most wonderful time of the year. The hotter, the better--there is nothing better than to feel the hot sun on your face and back, to feel the sweat dripping down your back, to watch the vivid colors of foliage as it grows and blooms all summer and stretches to the hot sun and drinks in the humidity. Nothing feels better on your skin than a hot breeze in the late afternoon or a cool early morning breeze coming through the windows as you awaken.Summer is the time of life, full and vibrant.
