I've been thinking about New York lately, even though we were just there a month or so ago. It's just that Fall is the most gorgeous time in that city. And the smells and the colors have stayed with me ever since I went for the first time 18 years ago during the Fall. During this time, we start rolling out the rituals we so much love to do. I take out my favorite DVD, which I insist on watching only in the Fall. I cook and bake certain dishes, like cheesecake, creme brulee, casseroles, and tomato basil soup. I unearth a few blankets and switch up the throw pillows, and basically redecorate with more color and put more scent around the house. It's part of the transformation and the search for beauty one craves during this time. I've have also been thinking about the things I want more during this time, hence the snapshot above with affirmations to help me get there. How about you friends, what are you searching for this Fall? Above, all, enjoy this time of year.
