the fall

As fabulous as Caribbean vacations are, one of my favorite things is when the seasons start to change. It doesn't even matter which season - I love them all. But if I had to pick a favorite, it would definitely be fall. The change from summer to fall is by far the best, because 1, you are still tan but you get to wear pants (finally), 2, because after 7 months of summer in the ATL it's refreshing to not sweat as you walk down to the mailbox at 9am, and to wear pants and sweaters instead of swim suits all day long, and 3, because it looks so beautiful when the leaves change colors and everyone buys pumpkins and drinks hot apple cider.
Other than a college interview today at Starbucks (I'm becoming quite the coffeehouse connoisseur) and some AP Macro homework, we went to the pumpkin patch today and had an utterly wonderful time. We bought pumpkins, frolicked through the greenhouses, and had such a wonderful day. It's like the quintessential fall thing to do, and it's my favorite time of year. Especially since my absolute favorite holiday ever is in the next two weeks!
Who would have thought that seasons could make a girl so happy?
Well, even if you don't think they can, the weather can make you happy. Even if it's just a change from the old grind. Just step outside and take a look at what the world has to offer.
