Tonight I’m facing a bout of insomnia. Naturally, I decided to get out of bed and blog about it.
There’s something about the approaching autumn that makes me a little melancholy, a touch
homesick. I miss Colorado. I miss my family. My mom, especially. I haven’t lived with my parents in
nearly seven years but there’s just nothing like the beginning of fall to make me feel like a little girl
In a sudden need for comfort, I have brewed a cup of caramel cream tea from one of my favorite
places, The Deep Steep Tea Company in Steamboat Springs (my amazing mother-in-law was
sweet enough to send me a few bags).
I do love the fall…the promise of cooler weather and crunchy leaves and cozy sweaters and tart
apples…kettle corn and school supplies…in a fit of end-of-summer cabin fever, I went into a frenzy
and completely rearranged all the furniture in our apartment (pictures still to come, I promise). I
moved all of our bookcases out of the office and into the living room so that I can have them near me
more often. I find them comforting, familiar, and friendly…
What about you? What little things do you find comforting? And what are you doing to prepare for fall?
love from your friendly neighborhood sleepyhead,
