"But then fall comes..."


“But then fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.” 
― Stephen King'Salem's Lot


  1. I LOVE fall, but I am always so tentative and stressed that it won't stay long enough for me. We've enjoyed blissful (football!!!) weather lately, though it feels likes it is changing far too quickly. It just arrived! I'm never ready for fall to be over. The trees are turning here too!

    P.S. Love the quote!!!

  2. Fall is my absolute favorite season. I always feel this sense of excitement, which I'm pretty sure is because it takes me back to my childhood and starting a new school year and all the excitement that that entails. I also love the leaves and the crisp weather that makes you put on a sweater.

    If only fall didn't lead to winter!!

  3. What a great quote! It seems like we go straight from summer into winter sometimes though. I'm trying to enjoy the few truly Fall-ish days that we get.
