The most wonderful time of the year....

I know that everyone thinks of Christmas when that phrase comes around but for me fall is the most wonderful time of the year....leaves are turning colors, the days twine by in ever-changing skies of brilliant blue and cloudy gray and the smell of rain hangs fresh on the air. Fog lies gently on the fields in the morning and low-hanging clouds climb the nearby mountain peaks....peaks that this morning revealed their first coat of snow! Its this time of year that makes you feel all snuggly-warm, listening to the rain on the rooftop, drinking warm cocoa while bundled up warm on the couch. I don't know about the rest of you out there but for me, fall is not a time of death and endings, but of laying the old aside, and pulling ourselves together to become something new in the spring.
