I don’t know what it is about the season, but something about fall soothes my soul. I get nostalgic and think about all the happy places, people, and events that I’ve known in my life. There’s a particular feeling and scent that comes with fall that awakens my senses.
I understand that this is false fall, that temporary blip on the calendar when it gets cooler outside and the breezes get crisper. I know next week will be warmer and less fall-ish. Still, my hope for real fall remains alive. Plus, I get all things fall — like pumpkin spice — and as a reminder.
At least it’s not 95 degrees and sweltering outside.
