Yes, I am perfectly aware there is still a month left before it's actually fall. However, that's one of the Fall junkie symptoms. Do I ask my family if it's ok to burn pumpkin scented candles in late July? No. Do I ask them if it's ok to fill the candy dishes with candy corn? No. Do I care if I embarrass them in the store by squealing the first time I see the colors orange and black lining the aisles? Or when I hear the costumes stores are open? Nope.
They've learned to love me through it, particularly because there is no chance of my being rehabilitated.
The smell of spice, pumpkins, and apples lighten my mood.
The creativity of costumes and decorations make me feel young again, even for a short time.
The family meals warm my heart like no other time of the year.
As I sit with my A/C on high, and drink cold ice tea instead of coffee while my pumpkin candles burn in the background, I thought I'd share with you some of my musings that make me excited to be a Fall junkie and keep me motivated and on my author game.
A SAUCY HALLOWEEN PLAYLIST
So, yes. As some are dreading the loss of summer and will miss swimsuits and amusement parks, I shall be bouncing around the house in anticipation. Of course, shorts and flip-flops are year round in this house, so some things will always refuse to change with the weather.
What are you looking forward to as the seasons change?
