Rain….most people have a love hate relationship with it.  We need it to survive but it often ruins plans and causes a lot of unexpected complications.  Sunny days are fun and invigorating for most but I have to say I love a good rainy day.  I love the smell of rain and the invitation it gives to just relax and enjoy.

I celebrated new beginnings.  I feel like we are starting a new chapter and although I feel like resisting it I know I have to embrace it.  So tonight I cleaned my slate.  I opened my mind to new possibilities.  I am ready and so are they.

Tonight we saw a glimpse of the changing colors and the fallen leaves.  I am still missing the sand between my toes but welcoming cozy evenings in front of the fire and afternoons sipping coffee and eating fresh pumpkin bread.

Here is to new beginnings, starting again or maybe just moving forward.  It is time.
