Fall comes every year, and every year, no matter where we are, no matter what kind of summer we’ve endured, no matter the emotional states of our lives, there is that first cool day that feels fresh. Like a new start. Like a breath of fresh air.
New Years is a time for resolutions, Spring is a time for cleaning, but Fall is a time of renewal. I’m not sure how you feel about fall, but at least for me, it’s time to open up the windows and clean out the closets. To mop and wipe down the baseboards. To fill up bags of old clutter to donate and bring home new (slim cut) baby jeans for the growing babies.
To get outside.
And so, at the beginning of this southern Autumn, I’m cleaning out closets and mopping floors. And I’m spending a lot of time outside with my baby… feeling the breeze, touching the leaves, smelling the sea. It’s so fresh (and so clean, clean).
