Labor (of.love) Day

Labor day is finally upon us, the official last hurrah of summer! BBQs, picnics, parks, swimming and being outside are great ways to celebrate. It’s a time for reflecting on the great summer that has come to pass, and the amazing autumn that is before us.

I for one, and extremely excited for autumn, as it is my FAVORITE season. My two favorite holidays, Halloween and Thanksgiving, are the highlights of this season, as is stepping on brilliantly hued crunchy leaves while taking a walk in the crisp weather. Coats, layers, boots, and scarves all start to make an appearance. Hair becomes darker and richer, the summery highlights no longer needed. I was particularly thankful this past summer was not one of the hot ones, and I got to enjoy autumnal temperatures unseasonably early, but there is nothing like the bite to the air that can only be found in November. Living in Northern California, we don’t get to experience all of the seasons in their purest form, but we do get a spectacular autumn, however short-lived it may be, wedged in between the dry, dusty summer and the wet, cold winter. Welcome, the most glorious season of autumn!

Some of my favorite things about autumn:

Celebrating birthdays! Lots of friends, family and my hubby all have fall birthdays
