Cool bright mornings, sunlight on the lake, cosy sweaters and woodfires...ahhh, September treasures! I have a vivid childhood memory of a pink mohair (soooooo itchy!) sweater, my younger sister and brother, a pile of leaves and an autumn afternoon. We raked and jumped and played until nearly dark, exhausted and full of fun! Last October, my niece and nephew endlessly raked this pile of leaves and leapt to their hearts content. While I often feel a little nostalgic at the end of summer, I do love the leap into this beautiful season of the year!
