It was dark when I woke up this morning. A cold rush of air rustled the window blinds as I slipped out of bed. I padded across the chilly slate floor – barefoot – into my office and started getting organized for the day ahead. It felt like fall. When I wake up extra early I always feel like I’m cheating – in a good way. While everyone else is asleep I’m getting a head start on the work I want to accomplish for the day. Still in my pajamas, I checked my email and made breakfast. Then Kosta, who wakes up the earliest, called to ask if I could take some photos for him today so I agreed and showered while figuring out what to wear. I decided on jeans and a sweater. I actually started putting on socks (and I can’t stand wearing socks) because my feet were that cold. And that’s when it hit me. It’s the first day of fall! (Or tomorrow is..) and if I have to wear socks you bet I’m dusting off my Uggs. Even if they’re anticipating high 80s for this weekend’s weather. Even if I can only wear them today.
Happy first day of Autumn!
