"Under the autumn tree. The chair where you would swing. A yard so full of leaves, comfort me."
If there was thing that would make me happy above everything else, it would be if the weather could stay the way it is right now all year round. It's magical, it's romantic and above all, it's comfortable. By that I mean, you can truly take the time to enjoy the little things and embrace them fully. There is more time to appreciate the colors that are so vibrant, and the sunsets that are consistently so beautiful every evening. You don't get those chances any other time during the year, and that makes me really enjoy autumn. The state I live in, Minnesota, offers both of those so nicely during October + November that I really dread when it becomes December.

I say that because, the other thing I really appreciate about this time? There is still the motivation to be happy and want to be outgoing. Winter brings out a really dark part of me, where I tend to be more depressed than I usually am, and I hate that it can affect me so much. It's brutal, I tend to want to isolate myself more because it's so cold outside! At least in fall, your outside view is like a painting waiting to be seen. Here's hoping this upcoming cold season won't be too bad, and then we can go right into spring!
I should probably slow down though, right? Jumping too far ahead, so let's go back to last weekend! My sister and her family joined me on a trip up North, to Gooseberry Falls in Two Harbors, Minnesota. This time of year is so beautiful up there, you get the best scenery of colors and atmosphere. It's beginning to become tradition to go up there, whether it's with family or friends, and I'm quite liking it. The chance to get away, even if for a few hours, is super relaxing and you're still in the same state!

 If you should ever visit the Midwest, I highly recommend stopping by this area and enjoying it like I do. Which area in your state do you enjoy seeing the autumn colors and scenery? Let me know in the comments below, and I hope you have a beautiful weekend!
