Thankful Things

Aside from all of the things I mentioned before, I really love fall for the way it seems to make life slow down. Summer, although I love you most of all, you really make me feel like there is absolutely no excuse to stay in and hang out. And most of the time, that's cool with me. But sometimes...sometimes I want to wrap myself in my blankie (yep, I still have one) and read for hours; or watch a movie or HGTV (those are the three "chilling out" choices) and not feel guilty. Other times, it's just nice to be down at the beach watching the birds and riding the waves without all the commotion of snack shacks and airplane ads. 
     Summer isn't the only busy season, though. The month of December seems to rush us along as well. The holidays, as joyful and special as they are, have a tendency to put pressure on people to do and buy certain things. But fall is just a season there for anyone who wants to enjoy it. This week I'm thankful for the simpleness of this season and the peaceful moments it brings.

  1. So true! And I have two blankies and no shame. I am definitely enjoying the down time between seasons and surely am not looking forward to the Christmas Chaos here in NYC.

  7. Fall is my favorite season of the year. I'd be perfectly happy to live in a place where it was fall all year round.

  9. I just found your blog. I am so incredibly in love with it. I went to Santa Cruz for the first time this summer and surfed my very first wave. It was one of the most invigorating experiences of my life. Around the same time, I gave up meat and seafood for good. I have never felt more in tuned with myself, or with the ocean.

    I look forward to reading much, much more!!!
