I'm Wishing...


I love the fall. September 1st I set to work putting pumpkin decor around the house, bright colored wreaths...apples and harvesty things- and bust out the smelly good candles that fill my house with the smell of baking (which I need practice at...the only thing I make that I like is buttermilk pie-YUM) I wish the outdoors could match...crisp, cool air that fills you up and smells of tree and clean. Having to wear a light sweater...warm treats feeling toasty in your belly. But no- this season doesn't exist for most Arizonans. It will be summer until like December...then it goes straight to 'winter'...which is colder, windy, and dead everything. No baking- it's too hot, unless you're a trooper like a few of my sisters. No glistening snow. (though I'm glad for no frozen anything too!) Anyone who knows me knows it was a good while ago I left the fashionista part of me behind- but I long for a cold month and a closet full of fabulous coats and knee high boots...and a REAL reason to wear a beanie. Maybe I'll get to have a real fall when I get bigger... or maybe next year I'll runaway to Amanda's... you have fall right 'Manda? I wish I could this year... but the bump will pretty much keep me from going far- though I tried to be sneaky and hint to M'Adam that a trip to Julian, CA wasn't a terrible early birthday gift... apple fest is going on... the fiddlers will perform nightly soon... and we like pie!!
