Autumn is such a beautiful season. I love where we live in Virginia because the leaves always change into such incredible and beautiful colors. It is amazing to look at the hills around us and see them seemingly on fire with color. The reds, yellows, oranges, and greens combined are breathtaking. Along with fall also come cooler temperatures, a little bit more rain, and shorter days. It’s harder to get things done in the yard but we have fun playing in the leaves as a family (we have several large oak trees in our yard so we have tens of thousands of leaves each year). My favorite part of fall, however, is spending time with my wife. With the cooler temperatures she is more amenable to cuddling with me so throughout the winter and early spring I get to snuggle with her on the couch as we watch movies together. The shorter days give us the opportunity to read more books together since we can’t really do anything outside in the dark. There is also a scenic drive through the hills in our area that we take together each year to enjoy the fall foliage. Despite all of this our spending time together is not unique to the fall. We find different ways and times to spend time with each other year round. Picnics in the summer, going out to dinner and theatre productions in the winter, long walks admiring the flowers in the spring; any time is a good time to spend with your spouse. Just find an excuse and seize it. Go have some fun.
