California Fall

The palm trees are changing color! Yay!
Finally! ;)

I love fall. Leaves change color, temperatures drop, colors in fashion and style change, pumpkins are out and pumpkin patches are a fun thing to go to, and I can finally wear funky looking socks. Hmmm...this was pretty much fact last year here in southern California. It was cooler. This year? It's a tiny bit different. We had 104 degrees on October 1, and the following days were pretty much 90-degree-hot-and-dry. Though by the end of last week and this week it cooled down a little. Thank Goodness. I thought the weather needed a special lesson on what fall weather really meant. I wanted to give it a D- just because it failed to notice it needed to slow down and let go of summer.

This definitely changed this week. I cannot believe we're having temps in the 70s. Yes. All of you out there not living in this area of the world and experiencing a cooler and wetter fall season...embrace it. Really. I miss rainy days. Just one, not a ten-day rain day. But one gray day per week that lets you wear a sweater and cuddle up with a hot drink in your hand without making you sweat just by the thought of it would be terrific. I'm so happy fall decided to return to southern California. Sooooo happy. I can finally wear different clothing. Hahahaha!! I know, I'm so dramatic!!

I'm still in the middle of all kinds of tests (really, what was I thinking?!!) but I'm enjoying life, education, and southern California. My midterm today got postponed due to my prof having had a terrible car accident last week. She's fine but on meds and couldn't come in at all. One day we had a sub for one part of our midterm but today she couldn't manage to find someone. I feel bad. Then again, more time for me to sleep in, study, get prepared and get healthy (stress makes me sick!).

And I think rain is on its way...literally people...it is!!
Will I remember how to open or even use an umbrella?!?

Hope you are having a fabulous, cooler fall day.
And I hope you embrace it no matter what.
I'm off drinking apple cider. 
Just felt right. ;)

xoxo

That's the only thing I didn't like about Cali was the lack of seasons :/ My friend the other day who was out there with me was talking about how much she missed it! I used to joke around about the depressed people on the random rainy day there. "Uh oh! It's raining! They're ready to jump!" haha :P Glad it fall like for you! :D

I had no idea palm leaves change color. The seasons aren't drastic enough for them to change color in Cambodia. I hope rain is on it's way. I'm loving the cooler weather, but soon enough the cold will be here.
