A perfect fall day consists of a sweatshirt, scarf, and a big cup of coffee. I love hearing the fallen leaves crunch under my footsteps and the feeling of a gentle breeze to make the leaves dance. With the changing of the seasons, it offers a time for renewal and rejuvenation of nature and our souls. Autumn seems to have a special and magical element to it. As summer draws to a close, autumn brings the family back together for quiet evenings at home and fun weekend festivals with friends. There is not much about autumn that I do not love. Everything about it makes me feel warm inside, even if the temperature outside tells a different story.
The last days of summer are bittersweet, but since there has to be a replacement, I am happy to see autumn to follow. The bright summer sun’s splendor is temporarily overshadowed by the golden palette of colors found on the trees. Scenic trips all around the mitten state are gorgeous, and the back roads lined with trees offer a resemblance of majestic oil paintings. It does not get much better than that. Living in a picturesque state has its perks, and autumn in Michigan is only one of them.
This is the perfect time to go outside, jump in the leaves, take long country drives, and bask in the crisp bliss.
