Fall

I miss the changing seasons...
{via}
In Phoenix we have two seasons: F*n Hot and Not Quite as Hot.

Back home in Georgia they will soon be feeling a slight chill in the morning air - the first sign that fall is imminent. Those mornings were my favorite growing up.

Fall in South Georgia is one of the simple things in life that brings me immeasurable joy.

I miss those muddy South Georgia rivers & creeks...
But my real reason for loving the smell of that crisp Georgia air was that it meant the Albany Autumn Classic Charity Horse Show was right around the corner.

that's not me by the way...
Then not long after that - the annual AHAF Thanksgiving Arabian Horse Show in Florida. Showing and training Arabian horses was my passion - briefly my career - and now a fond memory. I hope to one day have it back in my life.


Another thing from my childhood I miss greatly is our yearly family vacations in the mountains of Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

  1. Gee....that's kinda weird. When I lived in Valdosta (about as southern Georgia as you can get) I didn't really notice much of a change..LOL But then, I'm from Ohio and didn't really appreciate my seasons until I moved to awesomely hot FLORIDA...Ugh.

    Love Arabians. My second fav. They are just a little delicate for my fat ass !

    Have a great weekend.

    My favorite season is Summer, but I found the beginning of Fall really beautiful. The amber-colored leaves, the cool breeze...
