The Tiniest Hint of Fall

Posted by on Sep 9, 2009 in Uncategorized

67907473_925f0cb5b6Did anyone else wake up and smell that tiny whiff of autumn in the air? I swear, no matter how old I get, that particular smell will remind me of school. Of crisp pieces of Big Chief tablet paper, boxes of 24 number-two pencils, Trapper Keepers, rubber erasers, and ham-and-cheese sandwiches on whole wheat with mayo. Of a butterflies-in-the-stomach excitement (and a little apprehension) to meet new friends and wear new fall shoes.

Anyone else thinking fall thoughts? Are you starting to make plans for an autumn getaway or anything cool like that?

    Oh, how I love fall. I wanted to get married during the autumn so I could have those burnt orange, fire-engine red, and golden leaves in photos (but the military had other plans). I’m mostly looking forward to an annual trip to Red River my family and I take every year. That trip, for me, signifies the beginning of fall.

    Lexi, I like all the seasons here in New Mexico — but, without a doubt, fall is my favorite. Hmmm, I think a trip to Taos might be in order!
    But, I have to ask you a question. Trapper keepers?

    Michael: yes! Trapper Keepers! Glorious, velcro-bound ’80s relics!

    And Jess, I’m with you on the fall love. It’s my all-time favorite season.
