Around this time of year, every year, I tend to get a bit nostalgic for where I grew up. The bonfires on the weekends with the suns rays warming you through the day and a slight chill in the air as the sun sleeps for the evening, making it perfect sweatshirt and jeans weather. Though I migrated West into the desert, most people forget there are huge mountains out here, with trees that change colors, lose their leaves and SNOW! As I drive the boys to school in the morning I am stunned by the amazing colors showing up on the mountain as the trees are well into their fabulous Fall display, all seeming to try to out due the other. But there will always be something missing here where I have made my roots, and I think maybe, for everyone, no matter where you are, it’s never quite like home. I love being able to wear the same things I have all Summer with a sweater added on top, or a pair of leggings on underneath. It’s the perfect time of year for layers, and if you don’t like to dress that way, you will learn, because it’s the only way to get through a whole day in Northern Arizona because the weather tends to change very rapidly this time of year. The peaks have already had a dusting of snow, the wood has been split and stacked for the Winter and the flowers are making their last dying effort to provide a little brightness before the bleakness of Winter comes. No matter where I go, from October to November, I will always miss those Missouri Autumn evenings, growing up in the Boondocks.
