There’s just something so exciting about the fall! The freshness in the air, the scents, the chill, the soft sun in the afternoon, the colors… everything. There’s something to be said about the quote “life starts over again in the fall”. I believe in this. This summer for me has been full of ups and downs, full of excitement and anger. It gave me many firsts, some that I will never forget. It was a long, hot, crazy summer… in more than one way. It was the summer I will never forget, my most favorite one even though some parts of it were terrible. I grew up in this summer, I learned, I took risks, I laughed until I cried, I cried until I laughed. Everybody has that one summer that will always be in the back of their minds. The one where they took adventures, where they got their hearts broken, where they broke hearts. As autumn comes though, these things fade out. The tans fade, the hair gets darker, summer romances slowly burn out. Things start all over again and everybody gets a fresh start. The cool air sweeps away the heat of the summer. It sweeps away everything that happened, as it all just becomes a memory. I will forever cherish this summer, but as autumn comes I find myself growing up even more. This summer taught me a lot, I’ll admit. However, autumn is my favorite season. Things are just perfect. Whatever happened during summer is just a delicious memory now.
Autumn brings out something in people, I believe. It brings out hard workers, soul searchers, lovers and a peace. There is something to be said about those gorgeous, peaceful autumn nights where everything is just so. Autumn is magical. Everybody changes, we all grow up. We all have another summer full of memories under our belt. We grow older, more mature, some wiser. Others fall in love in the fall and everything goes out the window. The love that begins in the fall… it is so beautiful. Everything is just better in the fall.
With all the love in my body,
