Ah yes, the waning days of Summer stir in me both melancholy and anticipation. I really love the super hot temps we get here in Vacaville (average days are in the low 100s) because my garden grows beautifully with all of that sun & heat. I also enjoy all the cute Florida-style clothes I get to wear for a few months. Plus, we can only use our jetski during the warmer months so as the cooler months roll in, it gets stored away in the garage patiently awaiting another year when it can roar to life again.
On the up side, I find myself excited to be watching another football season rolling in. The sound of a football game in the house and that oh-s0-familiar Monday Night Football tune (dun-dun-dun-dunnnn) filling my ears brings a terrifically wide smile across my face. So many good memories!
Most importantly, as Autumn draws nearer, so does my November trip to Florida! My heart leaps with joy at the anticipation of seeing, hugging, and kissing every single member of my amazingly loving family. I giggle at the thought of hearing the melodious chorus from my nieces & nephews -- "Aunt Bethie!!!!"
On that note...I bought my ticket tonight & will arrive in Orlando on Tues, 11/24/09. I am blessed to be staying with my brother Chad, his sweet wife Steff, and their three adorable kids in their beautiful new home in Harmony. See you guys soon! Love, Beth
Tis The Season
