Last year's snow storm

…like Winter! (ding!)

On an October morning, though? This was so unexpected. I’m not mad that it snowed. I’m just mad that I wasn’t ready. I should’ve been, especially when the weather news forcecaster announced it. Maybe it was because he said it with no sense of urgency in his voice, almost like announcing a cloudy day, so I took it ever so lightly.

Just looking outside made me shiver so I pity those who had to go outside. I pity those who don’t have a warm home to go to even more.

Choir rehearsal has been cancelled tonight, so it’s just me and my warm quilt in front of a beautiful fireplace (ok, I’m lying. That fireplace is really a heater.lol).

Hope everyone is safe and warm. Enjoy your weekend!

Otoño, Frederic Edwin Church, 1875. Museo Thys...

A year of beauty. A year of plenty.A year of planting. A year of harvest.A year of forests. A year of healing.A year of vision. A year of passion.A year of rebirth. This year may we renew the earth

Today is the first day of Fall and I am beyond excited! I frankly was getting tired of the heat waves NYC endured this  summer and I couldn’t wait for this day to come.

I am in looooove with Fall, for various reasons and most unbeknownst to me. I’ve been getting so excited every time I see the degrees drop lower and lower every week and it kept feeding my impatience even more.

It even made me write a requiem to summer which I will gladly share here someday (I will think it through 🙂 ).  But, besides all of the hype, I enjoyed this past summer. I loved every places I visited and will forever cherish the moments I shared there with my beau, family and friends.

Although I can’t seem to put my finger on it, I know it’s besides my obsession with sweaters, jackets, cardigans and boots. It’s also not because I love the different spectrum of colors the leaves turn to or the fact that Fall announces my birthday ( 🙂 ) but there’s something about Fall that makes me prepare myself for a change. Change for all things new, just like the leaves change and fall, to produce new fresh leaves.

I like to keep thoughts of restoration in mind whenever things don’t seem right in my life, and whenever Fall comes, it’s yet another occasion for me to remind myself that change is on the way and soon, I will be harvesting great fruits from my hard labor.
