Every year I wait for fall with such anticipation that it's a wonder I survive the rest of the year at all. Most of the outfits I plan or devise and then never wear are thought up with the idea of fall weather. And yet, when it arrives I panic. I am afraid I am wasting the days! I feel as though every outfit must live up to the expectation of the weather, leaves, air, pumpkins, and food. I am convinced that the season is constantly slipping away from me. There is a sense of urgency in the leaves the second they start to change, the visual confirmation that it is all going to be gone very soon and it will be bitter bitter cold. It is all gone so fast, slipping through my fingers before I can enjoy it! I feel like I ought to be out in it every day and that moments not doing so are lost and pointless.
The wonderful Andrea of A Cat of Impossible Color (don't you just love her blog's name? It's just too perfect!) gave me a wonderful award! This is very exciting because I feel as though her blog is big and important, and I constantly agree with so much that she says, not to mention admire her glorious style!
I would like to give my piece of this award to:
Thumbelina, who I believe has already gotten this award, but her posts and blog fill me with envy and love! So it is important and necessary, you see.
And also, Plain Jayne, because her thoughts are so mind-bogglingly thoughtful and inspirational! I am constantly raiding her posts for ispiration!
