Bring It On

Summer lingers, it warmth still kissing the air. But Fall is coming, breathing a cool crispness in its approach. I've been incredibly aware and appreciative of the seasons this year, since the birth of Spring. While I've loved Summer and the warmth and sunshine it brought, I'm ready for Fall. For the crisp freshness and the beautiful leaves. I'm ready for desert season and learning to ride the 400 with a clutch. I'm ready for pumpkins and Pilgrims, followed by colorful lights and good cheer. The bf and I have already nearly worked out the holiday situation, which is pleasant and enjoyable. Still working on the particulars, but we are on the same page, cordial and thoughtful. I'm gathering my supplies to begin all my Christmas projects. The goal is to have things done before December so that I can soak in the joy of the season instead of pulling all-nighters to finish gift projects. Bring on Fall. I'm ready.

September is just another summer month, only with more football.

Trooper-That, and my birthday! :)

You've perfectly described why I like to start Christmas shopping early -- so that I can get it done and then not have to spend the season in a shopping frenzy.

Autumn is my happiest time of the year. Beautiful post Jaina!

Bunchy said...

No!! Wait!! I'm not ready!! I want summer!!

Great post, by the way...well-written. I just don't happen to agree with the sentiment. lol

Jaina said...

Jen - Exactly. That coupled with all the art projects I do, it's just so much easier to get it all done ahead of time. I still always seem to be down to the wire (literally), but I'm trying to not do that this year.

Kim - It's quite a lovely season. Thank you so much!

Bunchy - Haha, I definitely love summer too. And thanks :) It just feels odd that I'm so ready for it this year...usually I'm not.

Jaina said...

Yaya-So do I this year. I'm loving it :)

What a perfect post as the fall season comes upon us! :)

I adore fall, and like you, I hope to get some things in order for the holidays before we're in the mad rush of December.

Kelly - Thanks! Here's to us both getting things together before the mad rush of the holiday season is upon us!
