Not all Obama-y.

October 1, 2009

This morning when I woke up I could tell something was different. Maybe it was the fact that Henry let me sleep till 9:45, or the fact that it was a refreshing 80 degrees outside, but something was different. I could tell by the way the sky looked through my window that today was going to be better. And since nothing says "Hello fall" better than navy blue nail polish & a manipedi with your best friend I was on my way. I don't know what it is about fall that puts everyone in a better mood. Maybe it's the fact that while everywhere else in the country is having to deal with actual cold weather, we're blissfully enjoying 85 degrees with a slight breeze, or maybe it's the fact that the holiday season is on the brink and everyone is starting to smell the pumpkin and see the christmas lights. I can't put my finger on it, but I think I might have a clue. Maybe it's the fact that it's kind of a celebration. We've made it through another year. In a year (or a couple) that have been miserably hard for people, through trials&tribulations, through fears, through hardships, through moments that seemed unbearable - we've made it. We're almost there - we're almost through another year. We proved that while sometimes life gets so hard it sucks, that we can get through it. We can get through the 110 degree summers with the hope that fall is going to bring the cool. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to get all Obama-y on you here but it's as if, with fall comes a subtle change - a hope that everyone needs, a skip in everyones step. Throughout the course of a typical calendar year, life can really bog you down and fall is kind of like the pick-me-up.
So smile, fall is here, hope is here - we made it.
