To my ears, there is not a more satisfying sound than the sound of colorfully crunching leaf’s under my boots as I bustle along the now self-collaged autumn sidewalks.
To my eyes, there is not a more mesmerizing image than one of once green leaves transforming into vibrant colors of red, yellow, and orange, as they transcend from the tallest trees to the morning, drew droplets of unsuspecting blades of grass.
To my nose, there is not a more sweeter smell that fills my lungs than the one of an autumn wind coated in delicate notes of nature, fresh beginnings, and the calming still right before the rain starts to trickle down from the clouds to the trees to me.
To my hands there is not a more gratifying touch than the feel of a finely knitted scarf as it hugs my neck, providing a secure, warm hug from the chilling morning breeze.
Today is the first day of fall and to tell you the truth, I couldn’t be happier. While summer was a beautiful, chaotic hot mess, I’m ready for mother nature to magnificently shed its former beauty for the trees and the skies to have a fresh start. I too am ready for a fresh start; I am ready to turn over a new leaf and welcome autumn.
For weeks I have been patiently waiting for the temperature to be just cold enough for myself to style stunning outfits with my favorite sweaters. There is just something about a sweater that I love undoubtedly. It’s the first day of fall. So it is also the first day I am cleansing my closet of summer wear and welcoming my cozy, chilly weather wear. It mostly consists of sweaters and boots, but there are a few amazing autumn accessory pieces that I specifically save for this time of year. Just for that special happy feeling, I get when I rock it for the first time in the season. Autumn fashions no matter if they are the latest trends or the trusted classics. There is just something about fall fashions that rev up this giddy excitement within me that is filled with smiles and oh I can’t waits.
Out Look On Life
Recently I had this revelation, not necessarily a new one, but from a slightly new perspective. This revelation you ask? I am never not stressed. Sure I have what feels like peaceful destressed moments, but when I really thought about it, I find that I am always concerned and worried about something. This little fact got me thinking of how this ever going background stress affects each of the joyous moments I live in a day. Does the continuous turning of a stress wheel take away a little bit of shine from an innocent coffee date with a friend? Question and I shall answer for this is my season's mission. I am going to actively try to not stress about the little things that don't need the stress. I am going to try my best to refrain from stressing about traffic; my Pinterest recipe fails, or deadlines. While it might be difficult not to stress entirely, I am hoping that by reserving my stresses for more significant ordeals. I will find that I, as a whole, feel more calmly peace and that each moment contains a little bit purer unforced happiness.
I love to eat good food. I mean, come on who doesn't. Although over the last few months I haven't satisfied the foodie in me with delicious mouth-watering food. I have indulged in a few tasty dishes here and there, but over the last few months whether I make it or go out and enjoy the charming ambiance of a restaurant. I am left feeling a little disappointed or overall underwhelmed. In no way am I implying that I am not grateful and exceptionally thankful for each bite of food that I receive. What I am saying is that something is missing, the lustrous feeling of a damn good bite of flavorful food as been absent from my mouth for longer than a foodie like myself would ever want to go without. After some quick thought, I can't pinpoint where the problem lies. I don't know if it's me if I am in a food funk or if I am picking restaurants or dishes that won't provide to me that sought after feeling. Whatever the problem is, it has got to go. The foodie in me cannot take another dish that is just so so. This season I am going to go for it and find again the perfect magic feeling that only a deliciously flavored meal can give. To my best ability, I am going to cook my old-time favorites, seek out new exciting recipes, give foods I never normally would a chance.
