one thousand gifts

wine, weather, and cows [401-435]

They say that spring breathes life into everything after a cold, dead winter season. For me, Autumn, especially everything during the month of October, rejuvenates and renews me. Nothing makes me feel more alive than the crunch of leaves under my feet, the smell of wood and harvest plants, warm drinks, cozy clothing, and the nip of a crisp chill in the early morning or late evening. The past couple weeks have been filled with those and oh, so much more.
