“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
—John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America
It is always a bittersweet time of year. The nights are getting cooler. The days are shorter. The fields are being gleaned. It doesn’t matter if we heat the kitchen up a bit to make some heartier fare. There is something beautiful about the change of the seasons and with it comes a little bit of sadness too.
I feel most like myself in cooler weather so I adore autumn. It is my most creative and productive time. Also, three of my favorite people, Marita, Jen and David have birthdays today. Happy Birthday! So have a fabulous last day of summer wherever your day takes you.
