Autumn Glories

I love this season. When I was younger, I loved winter (skating, sledding, skiing, hot cocoa and cozy sweaters) and summer (swimming, berry-picking, berry-eating, sunny day dreaming) the best. The older I get, the more I appreciate the moderate seasons. I’m not even going to try to psycho-analyze that – it doesn’t take a genius!

I do find myself craving spring after just a little bit of winter now, and craving autumn a short way into summer. I miss the light more than anything in winter, but I don’t handle the extreme heat of summer well. AT ALL.

This autumn has been a little bit warmer than my ideal. BUT it’s still been glorious.

    • I still like winter, but I struggle so much with SAD that it’s just not as much fun for me as it used to be. It’s always better when we get snow, though – the years where winter is just cool and rainy are so much worse than when it’s cold and snowy.

  1. I always like the beginning of every season best: catching the first flowers blooming, the first day you can really run around without a jacket, the leaves changing, the first snow– the beginning of Winter is also helped by CHRISTMAS being there…. I figured out that my two least favorite months are February and August– the two months when you’ve grown sick of the extreme season they’re in. So I think I, too, may love the spring and fall that replace those months best, too. Maybe fall more than spring, even. But honestly, it’s really the change of seasons I love more than any particular season!
