And even though it was fall, I don't really remember noticing the beauty like I do now.
It was probably because of all the sobbing.
Once that subsided and I conceded that we were here to stay ... at least for a while, I began to warm up to the notion that autumn was more than just a vocabulary word and a date on the calendar.
All those things I read about in science about leaves turning different colors and the temperatures dropping (and staying that way) actually happen here in Virginia! No pool parties at Thanksgiving anymore ;)
Don't get me wrong. I love my Texas.
Forever and ever.
But these fall days in Virginia are something to behold ... and I am so thankful to have them!
