Happy October, Darlings!

I think every year I forget what autumn feels like. I remember that the leaves change, sweaters emerge from the back of closets, pumpkin spice everything goes on sale everywhere. But I'd forgotten the way the season smells, that crisper breath of air, the scent of dying leaves that makes a city or town feel as if it's been magically transformed into some place else entirely.

I'm being reminded now of this amazing transformation and the leaves haven't even started changing yet! This town of mine is beautiful and I'm enjoying it immensely. Possibly like I always do every year.

How are you enjoying your autumn?

so i love ...

The heat is winding down in Atlanta, hot days cooling down into scarf-worthy evenings. I've been settling into being back from my long trip pretty nicely, making connections with people I've enjoyed from afar and hoping meaningful and fun friendships form as a result.
It's not all anticipation of turning leaves and cool, rainy nights though. With the recent news of a well-loved colleague's renewed battle with cancer, my thoughts have become introspective even as I send her love, healing, and all the positivity in my entire being. The fight isn't an easy one and the love and positive thoughts of those around you are just as important as the drugs they pump into your body and the instruments used to cut danger from the flesh. Those of us who've dealt with it know all too well.
With all this movement going on in the universe, there is still the book tour going on. Next week, I head to Chicago then it's Philly, NYC, and DC. Miles to go and all that.
Have a beautiful September, darlings. Love well.
