Oh to have seasons...

So I live in Southern California, land of sunshine and summertime all year 'round. I wonder what it would be like to live in a place that changes with the seasons. The cool, crisp autumn air. Watching the leaves change and fall to the ground. Sweaters, scarfs, and jeans. The smoke of fireplaces and Pumpkin Spices. Football weather, college sweatshirts. Backyard football games (without sweating profusely), diving into a raked up pile of leaves. Harvest festivals, hayrides, pumpkin carving. Hot chocolate at a Friday night football game. Light jacket requirement.

No....I go back to the tank top wearing, sunglass wearing, hot and sunny, southern California autumn. Where I walk outside after a long air conditioned day and gasp at the warmth I feel in the middle of October. So I turn the AC on, get under a blanket, make some spiced tea and dream of seasons to come.
