Hallooooo, Twinklestars! It's finally me, back with you as we all start falling into Fall!
In North Florida, the much anticipated, long heralded arrival of the autumnal equinox brought on a rush of 79 degree weather....followed five minutes later by 80 degree weather...now holding steady at 90 degree weather. For now. Until the next storm-and-cold-front. Le sigh.
So, my joi de autumnal vivre is not measured in farenheits. It is a feeling, a kaleidoscope of colors, and heightened senses, and savory calories. It's a happy melancholy pensive magic mosaic of dreamy thoughtfulness. It's dramatic, in a humble way-you know?
I hum Vivaldi, and sprinkle cinnamon on apples, and
hang fall leaves of orange and red across shelves and in crocks. I want to BAKE and clean and breathe deep.
There IS something about Fall that changes my sense of time. And perspective.I want good book reads on the back porch swing with steaming cups of coffee. I want scary movies and dark nights and candlelight. I want caramel apples and candied yams and pumpkin pies. The taste of smoke, the smell of pine. Cold cheeks. Wind kissed lips.
And witchy trips---parties! :) Oh my goodness, I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to the 27th! Will you all be attending our favorite Vanessa the gyspy witch goddess' best annual bash? I will I will!! (And I could not love that owl any more than I do!)
As a matter of fact, the house is transforming itself almost magically in anticipation.....
And cobwebs in every corner! (Well, ok, maybe the cobwebs are less about magic and more about a testament to how much I have enjoyed being outside this summer.)
See you soon! xoxox
