Fall has surely found it’s way to Portland. And that’s okay by me.
Yesterday we went to the pumpkin patch and I was struck by the richness in color from all of the trees that lined that highway on our drive out to Sauvie Island. Reds, golds, and greens blending in to what could only be the first signs of the new season.
Ever since I was a child, I have looked forward to this time of year, when the air gets crisp and I anxiously begin to think up lofty ideas and projects for the coming months. I am never without Holiday cheer.
I AM Holiday cheer.
Although my plans always include lots of ways to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas, I have to admit, I forget all about the everyday goals. The one’s that I happily make each time Summer rolls around.
So this year, I’m doing something a little different.
I’m still going to enjoy the Holiday projects I’ve already begun to fill my head with- but I’m also writing up a list of Fall/Winter Goals. Simple plans, the kind that can easily be done on any day.
Read more. (I used to be so good at finishing a novel in two days. What happened?)
Discover new hiking spots. EXPLORE.
Weekend picnics. (easily enjoyed after the above activity).
Make daytime tea drinking a ritual. (invite a friend to join me).
Remember what it’s like to use my film camera. Everyday. No matter what.
Bake often. It makes the whole house smell nice.
Happy Fall, guys!!
