Your Turn Thursday: What’s your favorite time of year?

I love the change of seasons. It’s one of those things about growing up in Michigan, I guess – the weather and the mood outside is always changing, and as soon as I’m a month or two into a season I start itching for the next one. In fact, I always love the upcoming season so much that it’s hard for me to choose a favorite. Is it the warmth and light of December and impending winter? The green promise of spring? The long, lazy days of summer?

Well, I do love all those times of year, but I’d be hard-pressed to rank them above autumn. There’s just something about the promise of crisp fall days, the excitement of back-to-school, the smell of freshly-sharpened pencils…oh, and boots and sweaters. I am seriously craving some boots and sweaters right now!

The weather has been cooler over the past few days, reminding me that autumn is really just around the corner. Well, that and my son’s “meet the team” night for JV tennis. Wait, I have a high-schooler?!? It’s true, and something tells me that fall will be even more active and exciting than usual this year.

So, your turn! Do you have a favorite season? Or do they all hold a special place in your heart?

Psst! I now have Facebook comments installed, which means you can quickly and easily comment via your FB account if you’re logged in. I’m still trying to figure out how it works, but I think you can also comment on other people’s FB comments either here or on FB and it’ll show up both places. If you DON’T want to comment via FB for any reason, just scroll down a bit further and you can still connect the old-fashioned way! Thanks!
