It’s Fall! …
… or so my calendar tells me. I am beyond ready for cooler weather. It’s amazing how quickly we get tired of seasons (although I did hear on the radio that in New Orleans we only have three seasons: this summer, still summer, and next summer.)
Anyhow, at this point all I can think of are scarves, boots, peppermint mochas, autumn colors … you get the idea.
Things I am looking forward to this fall, in particular:
*An upcoming visit from my parents
*Attending a New Orleans-style wedding in late October
*Volunteering with the College Admissions Project & helping a high school senior from O. Perry Walker navigate the admissions process
*Plenty of out-of-town visitors throughout the next few months!
*One of my best friends hosting an 11/11/11 b-day party (she’s been talking about it since I met her 7+ years ago)
*Trips home & plenty of quality time with my family
-*My 27th birthday! (I think I might just be a little wiser this year.)
Hopefully you have some exciting things coming up, too – especially if you live in this area and you are more than ready to wake up to a true, crisp fall morning! xoxo
