I'm settling in again. That's how I know Fall is just around the corner. Summer seems like a risk-taker, so I chop off my hair, cut bangs, and wear crazy patterns and bright colors. But very soon, Fall's coming to town like an old friend, to hug me tightly and remind me of who I am--the girl dragging out the oversized sweaters, comfy boots, and corderoy pants. The girl longing for cozy neutrals, cool breezes with falling leaves, and pumpkin flavored things--all the pumpkin flavored things. Fall will get here and laugh at my half-grown-out bangs and the meager ponytail my hair barely forms. Then we'll look back over my free-spirited summer and curl up together under a heavy quilt, ready for the comfortable return to quiet normalcy.
