falling in love

i love fall. i love autumn. i love the wind and the trees; the air so crisp, the scent so soft and clean. i love the sweaters and the boots; the scarves and the hats. i love to wake up early and stand outside on our back porch. i listen to the wind and it fills me up with the magic of the day. i wish i could take it inside with me so the feeling of openness and willingness would follow me all day long.

and even as i sit here with my mug of warm apple cider, i can hear it outside, reminding me that a new season is here.

oh, how i love fall.

i took this picture during a morning run in Kennebunk, Maine. The first of the leaves turning, red.
