Officially, autumn started a week ago. But if you ask me, fall doesn't get started until it's October. Now, for the last eight years, I haven't had autumn. I lived in Georgia where it goes strait from summer to spring with two weeks of winter in between. But this year, I'm in Maryland where it's cool and the leaves are changing. That orange smell is in the air; that smell that resembles burning wood and wet leaves and the cold winter ahead. that is what I have missed. Wearing long sleeves and jackets.
I think I'll go outside and take a deep breath.
