I've missed you.
I've felt a little off at the beginning of the season - but I guess that's not unusual for a relationship where we're only together for a few months a year. I enjoyed summer to the fullest but we both know you're my favorite. I'm sure we'll find our footing soon enough.
I tend to get so excited during this season that I plan every possible moment, to the point where I over-extend myself and trying to enjoy those moments I miss out on others. My goal for September (and one I hope to carry throughout the rest of the season) is to take it one week at a time. I'll focus on this week and the upcoming weekend and only when that's done will I turn my attention to what's next.
You are leaves and scarves, boots and jackets, crisp air and pumpkin spice lattes. But instead of burning my tongue by gulping down those moments, I'm going to sip them slowly, savoring each memory as it's happening.
This will probably be hard for me - I'm a planner by heart. But if anyone can keep me accountable Autumn, it's you. If I'm getting too antsy do me a favor and send a light breeze my way, okay? One that's sweet and cool, that makes me close my eyes and smile - knowing everything is perfect in that moment. I'll want those memories to cling to as you ease away into frosty temperatures of winter.
You and me Fall. Week by week.
I'm ready. Are you?
Your biggest fan
