It seems like every year, the first day of fall is still hot and the first day of spring is still cold. Makes it hard to get excited about the change of seasons. So you can imagine my excitement yesterday when I opened the door to my balcony to find sunshine and a chill in the air!
I said “screw you” to grocery shopping and homework (OK, fine, I did both those things later in the day) and went downtown to enjoy the beautiful first day of fall with my other half. And because the first day of fall actually felt like fall, I went “fall out!” (get it? like all out? but fall? lame? OK.) New sweater! New felt hat! New dark lipstick! All these things have been waiting anxiously for their debut.
They got pretty much the best debut possible. The Sunday Funday rundown: a Starbucks run (for a pumpkin spice latte, of course), a long walk along the canal where we actually stopped to look at some of the memorials, and a scrumptious cajun dinner during which we tried to decide who looked better in my hat. I didn’t win, but it’s my hat and my blog and I get to wear it. So there.
