Turning Over a New Leaf

Happy Official First Day of Fall!!

Here on the East Coast the brisk wind has feverishly picked up blowing on the trees that are turning into the most beautiful shades of oranges and reds, and appear to be on fire as you drive by. Warm scents of pumpkin, apple and cinnamon fill the air comforting any troubled soul. For once, I’m actually excited about this season and all the great things that it brings. It might be the fact that I’m leaving for Portugal next week that has me sad I’ll miss almost a month of watching Fall come into life. Every season I create a set of goals for myself of simple things that I want to do, they’re sort of my yearly resolutions broken down by months. They don’t have to be life-changing goals, the simpler the better. It’s a rewarding feeling being able to achieve your goals in just a few short months. Even though I’ll only be back in the U.S. at the end of October, I still wanted to share my wishes for this season in hopes that it would inspire others to do the same. {It actually becomes fun, it’s like a game where you challenge yourself to accomplish everything on the list}

Hope you take advantage of this great season and remember that the goal of this is to “See new places, meet new people and experience new things. Get out there and live your life to the fullest!”

“Fall is exciting. It’s apples and cider, it’s pumpkins in bins, it’s burrs on dog’s chins, it’s wind blowing leaves, it’s chilly red knees, it’s nuts on the ground, it’s a crisp dry sound, it’s green leaves turning and the smell of them burning. It’s clouds in the sky. It’s fall. That’s why…I love fall.” – Unknown
