Fall Reflections

Fall is my favorite time of year at home.
I love the chill in the air.
Everything is crisp and fresh.
You smell cinnamon and nutmeg in the air as you sip your pumpkin spice latte and crunch falling leaves on the sidewalk.
It always makes me feel alive.
It is hard to believe it is the last day of October as I sit here in the muggy 80+ degree weather everyday.
I have been in Liberia for a month today.
4 weeks already!
I can't wait to see what lies ahead.

Crispy, wispy, whirling colors
Yellow, red, orange and brown
Empty, naked,straggling branches
A glimpse of lonely and forlorn

Brisk blasts of fresh air surrounds
Your breath making rings of smoke
A hush tranquility,void of sounds
Grateful for scarves, mittens and cloaks

Pumpkins and pies
Apples and dumplings
laughter and sighs
Autumn happily ever after endings!

All for you Deb!
