autumn

Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.
— The Great Gatsby

I am unbelievably excited for fall.  I haven't been in Vermont for autumn since 2006.  just thinking about that makes me feel old.  but this is a place that draws leaf peepers by the bus load to just drive through the valleys, gazing up at the burnt sloping mountainsides.  last year, living in Denmark, I was wearing my winter coat in September, but this fall i want to ease my way into sweater weather, take my time pulling the scarves and mittens out.  I want to sip hot (spiked) cider sitting around a fire and feel the crunch of leaves under my feet.  I have a feeling I'm going to get exactly this very soon.
