Turns out, it’s fall.
Yup, autumn is officially here in Colorado. There’s a chill in the air. The trees are radiant shades of orange, red and gold. It’s snowing in the high country (that’s what we call the mountains). Change is upon us.
Daylight savings is probably soon, too. Right?
I’m unsure of exactly when fall happened. In Crazytown (where I spend most of my time), there are no seasons. But in Fort Collins (where I actually live), autumn arrived at some point in the last few weeks and now that I’ve finally noticed … autumn is awesome (as is alliteration).
Of course, fall is just a precursor to the real event (Christmas). But, it’s nice to stop and smell the dead leaves, too. Autumn, just like ever other season, is another chance to start over. Another list to start (you know how I love lists). Another chance to get it right (whatever ‘it’ is).
Lately, life has been a little hectic with a side of emotional outbursts. But, I’m optimistic about the coming months. I’m looking forward to the chance to get it right. I am thankful for the changing leaves that alerted me to this season that’s zipping by at lightening speed. I plan to slow things down a bit and enjoy this time of year as much as possible. (And, I’m thankful it’s almost Christmas!)
In summary, in case you didn’t notice, fall is here. Take time to enjoy it. Happy Thankful Thursday, what are you thankful for today?
