It starts somewhere towards the end of August, when the sunflowers are really starting to bloom. I just start getting this feeling of complete satisfaction, knowing that the next couple months will bring me more of what I love.
I love this time of year. I don't know if it's the colors that begin popping ~ the beautiful display of yellows, oranges and reds against blue skies.... or if it's the weather ~ cool mornings, beautiful (mostly sunny) days and cool evenings.... or if it's something else.
I don't know what it is exactly, but every year about this time I begin to feel more alive.
I want to be outside ~ hiking, camping, sitting around a fire ~ just taking in the natural beauty of this season.
To see this transition from summer to winter ~ it nourishes me, excites me, warms me. Now if you'll excuse me, I want to go outside for a bit.
What is your favorite time of year?
