Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter.
every year around this time, i fall in love. just before seasonal affective disorder makes me sad for the cold, dark duration of winter, i find myself in a transitory state of bliss and calm. i think i'm waiting for the leaves to fall.
in the meantime, i'll be enjoying the 1.2 mile walk to work each morning, sans sweat or humidity. i'll be enjoying a couple pumpkin spice lattes per week (i've had only three so far). and i'll be enjoying sleeping with big blankets on the bed while my window remains open post-season.
i kinda wish i enjoyed football. but. never gonna happen.
