Not for me.
I grew up with seasons. I spent the first 26 years of my life with seasons. I heart seasons.
But, alas, for the last 8 falls I have been living in places that are nicknamed "The City of Eternal Spring", or even worse, places like Small Town Mexico where I could count the number of times I could comfortably wear pants in 2 1/2 years on one hand.
And now we are here in Brazil. South of the Equator. Opposite seasons from the States. So, let's see, this year I've had:
- One (eternal) spring in Mexico
- One summer in the States
- One Brazilian winter that felt suspiciously like summer in the States
What's worse, I've had to "spring forward" with daylight savings twice this year. Once in April and again a couple of weeks ago. I am not a good "springer." I'm a much better "fall-backer".
Sorry, I hate to have a whiny blog, it's just that I'm reading all of these posts about wonderful fall-ish things and I am a little sad.
So have some cocoa or wassail* for me and enjoy the changing leaves. :)
*I actually hate wassail. But I miss the idea of Wassail. And how it smells.
