Quickly Becoming My Favorite Fall Quote!

“Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love - that makes life and nature harmonise. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one's very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a perfect anodyne to the restless spirit. Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." - George Eliot

I know we're all being pretty basic lately but I DON'T CARE. I have said it before, and I'll say it again -- a man in a sweater makes my heart beat faster. I love coffee all year round, but it's even more wonderful when your cup is warm and the air is not. This time of year is practically perfect because the afternoons are still pleasantly warm. The sunshine feels good on your face, but you know the cold is coming. And that first step outside in the morning? When you open the front door and feel that burst of cool crispness? Ahhh. It's just perfect, right? I love that we, as humans, get so excited with each season change. In my little corner of the world, at least, the weather lasts just long enough to make it changing a cause for celebration. So bring on the pumpkins and the apples and the orchards and the cinnamon and the scarves. We're ready, right?

Sarah, aka "Plucky", blogs on the reg, unless she's on vacation or there's a Pretty Little Liars marathon or she's mulling over the implications of the phrase "on fleek." She can't live without iced coffee, a portable phone charger, or equal pay. Say hello!
