Fall has arrived

posted on: Friday, September 23, 2016



It is finally here and thank goodness, because I need a new season. I seem to get antsy towards the end of each one, ready for a change. Of course, I’m also excited to be in this city during my favorite time of year. Even people who love summer can’t help but admit how amazing the city is in the fall. Although, it seems that autumn is sleeping in at the moment as the temperature today reached the high 80’s and I sweat my way right through another shirt. Ugh! In my head, Fall arrives tomorrow because the temperatures will be dropping 15 degrees (cue the hallelujah chorus). Someone once mentioned that there’s rarely an ease into temperature changes here and it seems they were right! Its been warm all of this week and next week the temperatures aren’t even going to reach the 80’s.

Cooler weather is like instant happiness for me, almost like I get a rush of endorphins every time I feel the cooler air. I have this theory that it’s because I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale where fall anywhere else was as cold as it ever got in my hometown. I remember feeling like it wasn’t really winter until everyone wore hoodies at school and that was as much as we ever needed to bundle up. I love the chilly weather, getting cozy, wearing sweaters and layers, and it’s almost time. So, here’s to a beautiful first fall weekend. I hope you have a great one!
