I love the fall.

I love the colors.
I love crunchy leaves.
I love the extra briskness it adds to my step.
I love when my cheeks sting a little.
I love seeing my breath in the morning but not needing a jacket later in the day.
I love how it makes my little boy pink cheeked.
I love how it makes me want to bake Mr. C. cookies and big dinners.
And this weekend, I loved how it rained and rained and rained.

This Southern-Midwestern girl loves her some rain.
So when the desert I live in rains, I get a little giddy.
And on Saturday, I even heard thunder.
No tornado warning skies, just thunder... and it was fabulous.
