i don’t know how it’s gone by so quickly. standing up on the roof last night, staring up at the stars, we were freezing. in a cardigan i couldn’t wrap tight enough around my body, trying to find warmth in the arms around me, i shivered. the cool breeze is pulling fall in so quickly, i don’t know if i’m ready for it quite yet.
but fall? oh, fall. i know a few of us have been screaming about our excitement on twitter for crunchy leaves, scarves, boots, and layers. the colors and the brisk air? favorite. it’s another september i’m thankful to not be packing up and moving. another september where i buy new pens because i miss the back-to-school shopping days. it’s the month where i celebrate turning another year older, another year wiser, and curse time for passing so quickly. i’ve felt like my grandmother a lot lately, whining about how quickly things come and go. wasn’t memorial day last week? i’m embarking on my 30th year, my 29th celebration. i don’t know if i’m ready for it, but i will start with embracing the change in the air.
