Autumn!

I love autumn! Simply walking out in the crisp, cool air brings a flood of memories for me--Tennessee football games at Neyland Stadium, traveling to volleyball tournaments in college, jumping in leaves, bonfires, back to school excitement. I feel that autumn more and more represents my time in life. To me, Spring represents the newness and growing time of childhood. Hot summer days full of activity and play remind me of youth and early adult years. At thirty-three, I feel that I still have the energy of summer, but am moving into a more peaceful, settled time of autumn. Peaceful and settled in a sense of being comfortable in my own skin, not having to search for who I am. I feel grounded in who I am, and that feels great. In many ways, this is the most exciting time of life!
