Autumn Begins

"I cannot endure to waste anything,
 so precious as autumnal sunshine, by staying in the house."

~Nathaniel Hawthorne
The American Notebooks

Can you smell the pumpkin pies and cookies baking yet? How about the cinnamon scones and cranberry/pear tart-lets? I know... it's the cinnamon/maple pecans slowly roasting in the oven that has your mouth watering! Yeah, I know, it's still hot as blue blazes outside as summer continues to inflict it's opinion on the world, but a girl can turn up the air-conditioner and dream can't she! 

Today, Alan and I are going on a little trip down to the Bay Area. It will be a blend of chores and leaf peeping in some of my favorite leaf peeping places, because who could spend a glorious autumn day in the house when the first day of autumn comes but once a year! And besides, it's time to pop down to Berkeley and grab some cheese, from the Cheese Board Collective. Yum!

Go out today and say hello to autumn.
Grab yourself a pumpkin latte.
Watch the early leaves dance along the street.
Photograph something beautiful.
Take nothing for granted.

It's Autumn!
