Full Of Good Things.

The season I love most has always been - and always will be - autumn. And every year, toward the end of summer, fall starts seeping into the air and it makes me crazy with delight. I put on courduroys and sweaters far too early. Also, I fill my head with thoughts about how fast time flies... and I wonder if it's just me or does everyone get so reflective around the coming of this season. I love that it isn't distinguishable by the tree's color change yet, but you can still smell its subtle approach - especially in the mornings. It's in the air somehow, and it grows, this feeling...

And it's full of good things.

I'm waiting for the perfect day to make this... and am excited about squash, pumpkins, sweet potatoes... all the yummy fall foods that are rolling in. I'm not quite ready to let go of the summer foods yet (I might cry when tomatoes are gone...), but right now is that perfect in-between stage, where you can enjoy a little bit of both.

Anyway, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite thoughts on fall, by George Eliot, who was actually a Georgina, but no less poetic.

"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns."
- George Eliot

Delicious Autumn indeed.
Happy weekend, happy Fall!
