It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year…

No, not that time… at least not for me. ;) For me the most wonderful time of the year is right now. Fall has added a crispiness to the air that give me energy and makes me feel a kind of “fall fever”. I’ve been this way as long as I can remember. Spring is wonderful, but it brings Summer after it with the oppressive heat and humidity, and unless you live within walking distance of a beach, leaves something to be desired.

I recently read an interesting book called The Power of Place: How Our Surroundings Shape Our Thoughts, Emotions, and Actions ┬áby Winnifred Gallagher (I also recommend her other book, House Thinking. Fascinating stuff!) I found that there may be a scientific explanation for the burst of energy and giddiness I feel every autumn. Apparently, research has shown that cool temps are an antidepressant. And just as some people are affected by the darkness of winter (I am), a phenomenon known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D. for short), some are negatively impacted by hot weather and especially high humidity. Maybe I’m living in the wrong state! I love Georgia but the summers here really affect me.

Anyway, I’m sitting here in my new office, which for the next several weeks will be outside on my front porch, so I can enjoy every moment of the weather until it gets cold. Sadie just came up to enjoy a little “mee-mee side” and her head didn’t produce drops of sweat running down my arm. How nice! The boys are running around climbing trees and my 4 year old is chasing after them.

Now it’s time to get to work. I have articles to proofread for mine and Tiffany’s new private label rights membership site for wahms targeting the natural mom community. Talk with you later!

    I threw up an opt-in page on the site real quick.

  2. I’m going to miss those cool crisp days. I LOVED fall in the mountains where I lived.

    But I always said I’ll either live in the mountains or at the beach so here I am at the beach lol.
