Yes, it's that time of year again. Time for me to blog about fall. That contradictory season when I'm part-enchanted, part-depressed.
And focus on the fun seasonal things like Halloween to distract me. Check.
Here you see a sleeping Juju wearing her princess crown that we prepared for our little Halloween/tea party where she was Rapunzel.
But it wouldn't be me without a little dose of fall blues. I think this year has been better cause I've been very conscious of how great it is to have time to myself again after last year's studyfest. But it's biological too. As my coworker and friend Marine says, we're all beasties after all. The inner animal in us can't help but be affected by the changing light and decline of the plants around us.
Something makes us feel like we've got to shut down or at least slow down a bit. I can't help but get downright nervous about winter and the cold and the potentially grey days ahead of us. That's why I've got to keep myself busy and find things to warm my soul.
What are your favorite anti-blues fall activities? What's your favorite season?
