I'm always a bit sad when the end of summer draws near. I have to say goodbye to brightly colored flip-flops, warm sunshine, wonderful camping in the mountains (which I haven't done near enough of this year), sun bathing, swimming in the cool pond..many things that I love! But for all that I still get excited about the coming autumn. It's goodbye yard work! Hello wonderful vibrantly colored leaves! Hello harvest parties and bonfires and apple cider and cozy sewing days (I miss you, Lizzie!) with tea and scones and beautiful movies! Hello to all my piano students, new and old! (love you guys!) Warm scarves and SWEATERS! And possibly, the best thing about Autumn....Thanksgiving. Turkey, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie. Oh, heavenly!
