most people that know me know that I love fall. a whole lot. maybe an unhealthy amount.
fall is incredible. it’s the time of year that everything has an added warmth and spectacle to it. it’s a cue for scarves and candles and mulled wine and fog and pumpkin picking and jackets and just… the best colors showing up and brilliantly falling to the ground all around us.
but more than that, it’s a time of change. a time that reminds me of going back to school and knowing that i had the chance to get to know people on a deeper level than I did before. and acquaint myself with new faces. and hearts. and learn more things than I could imagine.
i miss those days a lot, but fall is a really lovely reminder of how great certain times in my life have been. and maybe that’s enough. having a season that reminds you of beauty by blatantly laying it out in front of you…. and letting you know that change is ok. that it’s good.
and that it can be pretty beautiful if you let it.
one time a girl biked past my car with a striped backless shirt. I walked into my apartment, found it, and bought it within 5 minutes. one time it took me 25 minutes to decide what wine to buy. I’m strange.
