fall in our neighborhood
I thought a lot about how this fall would be -- Nick's first semester in grad school. for a long time it was a "Pennsylvania fall" complete with the gorgeous colors that come with that area. last year amidst our decisions we thought we'd spend the fall in Brooklyn, taking in the sights at Central Park & trying really hard to keep warm while we explored the city, and spending Halloween in the boroughs.
In a way, it still sort of turned out how we imagined it would. We live in a beautiful house that's everything we need right now. My favorite part is the front porch, something I've only ever dreamed about! I'm so glad fall is still in full swing so I have a little more time to ooh and ahh at all my favorite parts of the season.
Like, I'm totally not that kind of person who listens to Christmas music or puts up any decorations or the tree as soon as Halloween is over. No no, I wait until after Thanksgiving. In my home growing up my mom always played Christmas music the morning of the first snowfall, but after that we had to wait until after Thanksgiving for any yule tide tunes. I abide by those rules to this day!
Classic traditions or nothing!
