welcome to autumn.

dear readers,
today is the first day of autumn.
the leaves here have begun to change color and fall
although many are still clinging to our
warm (but crisp) weather
and remain green on their limbs.
the weather is still temperate,
although the breeze has noticeably cooled
over the past week
and my cardigans are folded neatly on shelves
ready to be used
while in my front hall,
ballerina flats have replaced flip flops
as the go-to shoe of choice.
the grocery and the farmers market
suddenly abound with acorn & butternut squashes
as well as adorable mini pumpkins & decorative gourds
(several of which now adorn my kitchen table).
my head is constantly preoccupied
with the thought of what comfort foods
i'll cook or bake each day
(today was popovers with a dinner
of barbeque chicken and acorn squash fries,
and right now peach shortbread is cooling
on the kitchen counter).
i've suddenly grown content spending an entire afternoon
cuddled in our cozy new brown throw
on the couch, absorbed in a novel
while the golden sun peers through the window.
i love watching summer change to autumn.
