Fall is slowly encroaching on Minnesota. The leaves are changing from bright, lush green to a more muted brown and vibrant orange. The air has gone from a sweet, warm musty smell to a sharp, brisk tingle in the nose. The nights are closing in on our days bringing the warm welcome of our beds to the fore front of our thoughts. Activities have transitioned from picnics and the beach to apple picking and big family dinners. This is a season to rewind, to recoup, and to take the time to relax and refocus.
I embrace fall and welcome it’s comforting traditions. The upcoming winter makes me cringe but I try and take the time to really enjoy this glorious season that turns Minnesota into a scenic adventure.
