Autumn, now

The weather has definitely turned nippy of late, necessitating scarves and proper jackets, less swanning about as if summer were still lingering in the air. I've lived through crazy Chicago winters (forty below, in Fahrenheit, with windchill, anyone?) but as friends with experience of both London and Chicago winters warn me, there's something about the English cold that gets into your bones.

For now, though, there's something invigorating about the brisk evening chill. Walking along the Thames tonight as the wind whipped past, I felt lucky to be alive and here, here and now.

Oh ye, new to autumn. This is the nice part, where the light is sharp and the air crisp. Wait till the damp settles in. Buy a sunlight and book a getaway to North Africa now.

The crisp air and the colours of autumn are certainly unforgettable...just like the magic of the first snow.

It's so heartwarming (no pun intended) to read about how much you are savouring this experience! Go you! :D
