Year after year, there's one thing that never gets old… stepping outside on an autumn morning, feeling the brisk coolness in the air, and realizing that for the first time since the long summer started, you just might need a sweater today, if only for a few hours. It's a little like sunlight cracking open the clouds after a week of horrible stormy weather.

This morning was like that… bright and cool and lovely and alive. But I suppose serious excitement at the first real signs of autumn are a side effect of living here in the Land of Sunshine.

Nice day to be off to working the Southern Women's Show in about an hour. Let's hope I don't get lost on I-Drive…. :P
