Do you smell that?
Its the smell of CHANGE! I love the smell of Fall. In Hawaii its different than the mainland fall smell. On the mainland, Utah, it smells like brisk cool air. The kind of air that tingles your nose because its ALMOST too cold. The air that brings in football games, orange & red leaves and of course Halloween and eventually Thanksgiving. That’s the Fall air.
In Hawaii the air is cooler also, which is so nice because September tends to be the HOTTEST month with the humidity. The smell of heavy rain that last about 10 minutes and then the SUN shines almost instantly making that rain evaporate. I LOVE IT! I love the smell of the wind changing direction, bringing in a new salty air smell…and School Fall events, Halloween parties and of course Brisk Beach days. That’s Hawaii Fall air.
More than the change in weather, I feel the change stir in my heart. The change that makes me more involved in the kids school activities, that push that excites me for SOO many events to come. Change in my attitude towards; the never-ending soccer games & practices, the over-kill of Pinterest ideas on FB, and debate on what costume to be for Halloween. My heart tends to be more patient this time of year…maybe because I’m more of a KID this time of year and not a controlling-organizing Mom.
I love Fall. I’m Falling into a good change….and I can’t wait!
I love that you love Fall too! It's the kick-off of so many happy, good memories to be made as a family. Bring it on!
