Welcoming October with My Girls

I love the fall.

Yet I start to feel a bit of anxiety this time of year as the warmth slips away, because I never know how many months will go by before it returns. It isn’t unusual for it to snow here in June, and eight straight months of cold weather can be tough on this desert rat!

But, I will live here for the foreseeable future, so I am trying to be proactive about how I handle the chill.

First, I will be investing in good thermals this year and will perhaps always be wearing two layers of clothing.

Also, I am going to do my best to get outside each and every day, even for 15 minutes. Fresh air really does keep my head above water when it comes to my moods and depression.

And so, my girls and I have started going for walks. I didn’t snap any photos of Marley because she was strapped to my chest, but check out my big girl in her twirly dress!

Oh, that light. The light this time of year truly is magical.

What do you do to make the best of weather you don’t enjoy?

Today at home, it was rainy and grey. It may be great for ducks, but not my favorite. Finally prepared with boots and a raincoat with full coverage plus a hood, I don’t mind walking through puddles to get where I’m going. And, it smells so fresh outside! There’s always a balance to find. :)
