I'm looking forward to fall this year, probably more than other years. Maybe because our summer was unseasonably hot this year (still, I love the heat so I'm not going to complain but it was excessive this past summer) and right now, we're still having unseasonably warm temperatures. I love it, but the heat makes it rather impossible to wear slacks or jeans, or even a 3/4 length sweater. It's been nothing but shorts and tank tops this summer! I love that, but sometimes you just need a change, you know? Evenings have cooled off a little, making sleeping a lot more comfortable (we don't use air conditioning in our house), and mornings are cool but by 10:00am it's warm enough for shorts and tanks again.
Or maybe I'm just looking forward to it because we hope to make a trip to Florida (late October, early November-ish). Florida is pretty new to us. We were there earlier this year (February, March) and although it was the place I wanted to visit the least, we both fell in love with the city of Lakeland, and hope to go back this year (and next year).

Whether we get there or not this fall will depend on the state of my mother-in-law ... she's got needs and my husband and I feel like her needs have to come before what we'd like at this stage. We won't have her forever and looking after someone you love shouldn't be considered a sacrifice, or a duty ... but a labour of love.
