September is well underway and I’m already counting down the days until October. The autumn is one of my favorite times of year. Like other autumn lovers I adore the cool air, the turning foliage, college football, warm colors, when the heater is going, peppermint, cold cheeks, sweaters, Barbours and Bean boots. More than anything, I love that the next few months bring celebration and family time.
I have so many great memories from the autumn. One memory in particular stands out. In high school (sophomore year, maybe?), my class went to a pumpkin patch for an after-school activity. Along with the corn maze, there was a “haunted forest” you could walk through. Two of my girl friends and I decided to go with two or three of our guy friends. Strategically, we thought protection. One guy was a tough football player that we all thought would protect us from the chainsaw or whatever they were trying to scare us with. Uh, no. He was screaming and hiding behind us girls! We screamed and laughed and sprinted our way through the haunted forest. I think at one point one of the guys fell down and we all took off without him. The boys acted so tough before we went in, but when push came to shove it was the girls leading the way. Typical. I remember finishing it and being so out of breath yet still laughing so hard I was crying.
Until the cool front sets in and the haunted forests open, I’m going to try to enjoy the last taste of the summer warmth I have left. Soon it will be time to bust out my favorite autumn fashion staples and put out the pumpkins. For now, all I have are these pins.
