We're about to celebrate our Thanksgiving holiday here in the States. Families are gathering, and soon the beautiful colors of gold, amber and rust will be giving way to seasonal red, green, blue and silver. But since autumn is my favorite time of the year, I want to hold onto this time just a little longer.
I adore the colors of this season, the aroma of favorite foods baking in an oven, and the smell of burning leaves. I love the feel of donning a sweater when it's chilly and the weight of adding an extra blanket at night.
I love the crisp sound of biting into a fresh apple, the snap and crackle of a wood fire, the sound of leaves crunching underneath my footsteps, and a cool wind brushing my cheeks.
Whether or not you're celebrating Thanksgiving this week, I wish you a day filled with joy, gratitude and many blessings!
