Yep, It's Fall!

I walked to work today, coffee in hand, song in my head, enjoying a cool, crisp breeze. Leaves fluttered around me as they quickly evacuated their home trees. They're falling faster lately. A light fog draped herself sleepily on the mountain, reluctant to wake and head home. The sun is low, the river cold, the colors bright in the trees as the sun turns them to stained-glass. Was it Fall? Almost. But as I continued my steps toward work something caught my eye. On the side of the path. In the brown dirt, there lay, a bright piece of candy corn. All alone, dropped by a passer-by. I smiled and thought, "Yep, it's Fall!" Officially. Candy Corn Season. :) Mmmmm.

  2. This is fabulous! Isn't it lovely to be able to walk to work? To live that close, and to do so with coffee and hand?

    And your spied candy corn is just like the spring cherry on the top of your morning! :) Candy corn is such a funny thing. I've never liked it, but at the same time there's something so deliciously nostalgic about it!

    Happy autumn!
