"and all at once, summer collapsed into fall"

Had a really good Halloween spent watching ridiculous movies and snackin' on donuts/popcorn/candy/Cheetos while it stormed outside. Seriously though, what a perfect sorta holiday. Now I'm just counting down the days until we get to spend Thanksgiving with my family for the first time since we moved—I'm also totally dreaming about food like sweet potato pie and fried turkey and shrimp & mirliton dressing (something like cornbread dressing but even better!?). I mean, food is kinda always the best part of holidays...right? right.

All of the leaves are already changing colors here and I've never been sure exactly what it is about autumn that makes me always feel so much more sentimental. I think I like it though.
