Most of the tourists are gone so I can enjoy going down to walk on the beach, the crisp air in the morning and evening, leaves changing colors, and even the sky seems to take on more color with each sunrise and sunset. Not hot, not cold... sighs.. ahhh Fall!!!

What I love best about fall is that it is an opportunity to start fresh. Most people say that New Year's is when you can have a new beginning, but I believe that it is a lot nicer of a time to "turn a new leaf" when all of the beautiful fall leaves are changing along with you!

Fall is a great time to share with your family. Sharing time, hobbies, & activities. Cooler weather allows time to get back to your hand crafting projects that were put aside for all the summer sun and fun.
I love Fall for all those reasons but also because life always seems to mellow out just a bit before winter set in and so do I!
