How these seasons create their own desire and fulfillment

This morning was the most blissful morning to ever descend upon us. Riding my bike to work today, coasting down hills with the breeze, I couldn't help but wonder if I had just awoken from a two-month long nap. The weather felt like it was sharing a secret - this is what we call autumn, and it's headed your way - and consequently I felt like I was again a grade schooler, passing notes and having crushes. The cool lack of humidity made DC feel oceanside.

Let's hope this sticks around for the rest of the summer. Autumn is certainly my favorite time of year. Crunchy leaves and crisp air! Primo bike-riding weather! Freshly baked pumpkin pies and apple cider!
