Dear Fall...

Dear Fall,

Where are you?

Have you forgotten about me? Down here in Mississippi?

I have read about people turning on their heat.

I have seen people bundled up in their warm, comfy fall clothes.

What about us?

I am still cranking down my air conditioning like it's summertime.

I sweat (only sometimes) when I drink my fave Starbucks drink....a nice, hot pumpkin spice latte. Topped with a mountain of whipped cream. Yum.

I put on jeans yearning for a cold--or even a cool--front to come blowing in. Instead I am greeted with sweaty legs stuck to my jeans. Classy, no?

You are my favorite season. Ever.

Not too warm....not too cold.....just right.

So, Fall, if you are reading this?

Please come my way. I will not complain about cool, crisp mornings. I will not complain when I have to turn on my heat.

Instead I will embrace you with a warm cup of homemade hot chocolate, a warm pot of chilli, and if you're extra nice and come earlier?

I may treat myself to that warm, fuzzy pair of slippers.

All my love and dedication to you,
Chelle
Your #1 Fan

I hope FALL makes you happy and comes to you soon. Oh, and forgets to bring the nasty colds and such with it :)

Fall made an appearance in San Diego for the first time tonight. We came out of a restaurant after eating dinner and there was a slight chill in the air! I have no idea if he's here to stay, but I hope so. I love fall. Hopefully he'll make an appearance down your way before too long, too. Sticky jeans are the worst!

It will come:) Fall is just a little slow this year. Don't give up on him to soon!

Hope fall comes your way soon. I am utterly confused right now being in opposite seasons from the states. We are supposed to be experiencing Spring right now. Then summer at Christmastime. I just can't get used to it.

Our Fall started here but it has been COLD! I hate to complain, but our summer was short this year...Hang in there!

Oh Chelle, I am so with you.
I got up to go running at 5:45 this morning specifically thinking it'd be cool outside while still dark. But no. It was hot. Living in the south can stink this time of year, when we're ready for the cool weather to come in.

Wish we could share some of our wonderful fall weather with you! It was warm today, but it didn't even reach 80 degrees. Hopefully they won't have a heat wave in Indiana when we're all there in TWO WEEKS! (YAY!!!) & we're REALLY hoping for no rain so we can all hit the pumpkin patch together too, . . .

Love you! Hope Bella's party went well today!

Fall was here but it went away. And, I had already put away all the kids' summer clothes. You suck, global warming!

I hope fall comes soon!!! That totally stinks! It is supposed to get hot here this week, in the 80s and I am so bummed. Because it was finally getting cool!

Shannon said...

I hope Fall arrives on your doorstep SOON! It was very warm here this weekend, totally un-Fall like!

Isn't it the pits to be hot? yes, "pits" as in arm"pits." It is really hot down here, too!
