“And the sun took a step back, the leaves lulled themselves to sleep, and Autumn was awakened.” ~ Raquel Franco
I found this beautiful line on an Instagram friend’s post a few days ago, and it spoke to my heart. I subsequently discovered Raquel Franco’s writing and I love it. Mostly short and sweet, and very descriptive.
I said before that I love autumn. It is the slow turning of the leaves (it happens very slowly in South Africa), the gradual drop in temperatures, the shortening of the days that makes me so happy.
It is not a spectacular season here as in, say, Canada, but sometimes in some areas, it can be very beautiful…
I am planning to enjoy every moment of this changing of the seasons, and to get my home ready for the colder weather to come.
