Something very exciting happened where I live this weekend:
It actually felt like fall for a whole two days.
Granted, it was also dreary and rainy for a good part of those days. But no matter. Temps didn’t get much above 60. Leaves on a few of trees on property were starting to fall. It was lovely. Of course, they’re saying that temps for the rest of the week are gonna be in the 80s. So if you need me, I’ll be hibernating until the leaves change and the temps drop and it’s acceptable to start wearing boots and long sleeves again.*
*I wish…I have a session of camp to run this week. Bring on the bright blue staff shirts and denim shorts. Sigh.
In honor of the changing season, here’s a playlist inspired by the cool days, frigid nights, foggy mornings, and warm hues of autumn. If you’re on Spotify, I’ve also created it there! And I’m sure I’ll keep adding to it as I find more autumn-y tunes.
