I miss the FALL!!!!!

So, all around the country, it's FALL. Fall is lovely. Fall is cool, a breath of fresh air. There is no fall in Florida. Sure, sure, we had a "cold front" pass through this morning and it was 69*F at 7:30am instead of the 79*F it was yesterday at the same time. However, at the end of the day, it was still summer. I believe our cool front brought us down to the mid 80s. It is beautiful here, but I want to feel FALL. I want to be cold and to wish I had a sweater. I want to see leaves (notice I didn't say palm fronds) that fall off of the trees. I want to see the children pick up different leaves and acorns and ask me to hold them. Fall, I heart you!!! Fall makes me miss my friends and family from home. I am going to miss seeing mums and pumpkins and pansies and goodness gracious, the State Fair and its turkey legs!!!!!!!! So, if you're experiencing fall, and longing for the long days of summer, take a deep breath of that cool air, and know what a blessing it is!!!!

Oh Hugs.... I am sorry. We are in the throws of fall and it is indeed lovely. We've even had cooler than normal temps, upper 50s low 60s... and I am loving it!

Your cool weather soon will come! Meantime, can you all take a trip somewhere and get a little "fall"?

So sorry that you have to miss out on fall...thats SO wrong because you sound like you love it and miss it so much! Seems like it has started to cool down really fast this year so maybe it will be a really cold winter and travel all the way to Florida for ya. Hope your having a great day so far! = )

I will be jealous of you come January! The last two years we have gotten over 120 inches of snow each year. I will be scraping car windows, listening for school closures on tv, and hoping for a temp above zero, and thinking of you.
