366 Project - Day 268 - "Autumn"

September 24, 2016 - "Autumn"

Whenever people ask me what my favorite season is, the easy answer would be to just say "Autumn" or "Fall" - but it wouldn't exactly be accurate. I find most of the weeks that make up Autumn to be kind of on the depressing side. Once all of the leaves have fallen and everything is just bare and gray and empty and cold. That's the way it tends to be here for the month of November and the weeks of December that lead up to the beginning of Winter. So for me it all comes down to a very specific time... which typically runs from the final week-and-a-half of September through most of October. The air is crisp... not too warm... not too cold... and there's a certain scent that just feels so welcoming. The leaves begin to change... and apples and pumpkins are everywhere. We shift from the iced coffee days of Summer to the warm cider nights of Autumn. This truly is a magical time of the year... especially here in New England. During the years that we lived in the South THIS was pretty much the only thing about the North that I actually missed - "Autumn in New England".

There's just nothing else that could compare to it!
