Feelings and Memories of A Northern Fall

I was just thinking about how quikly the days pass, and how much different it is in the fall with the kids in school and all. Here in Florida we do not have the privledge of seasons, and one of the things I miss the most about PA is that when seasons change there, the leaves turn this beautiful color of orange, red and yellow, and the wind that passes through makes this snarly hooing sound. Its so much fun as the energies of the first days of school come through the towns, all the kids with their new schools and supplies. The sound and smell of the school buses that had been on hiatus for the last few months, blend in with the smell of dead crumpled leaves that fly across the street. As the fall months pass by, the the trees only get prettier and prettier while football season runs its course. You hear the faint sound of highschool bands practicing their trumpets and drums through the surrounding woods, echoeing off of the mountains. Closer and closer it comes to Halloween where masquerade is ok, and children get to swim in the best kinds of candy! A secret society of children speak of “which houses are giving the best sweet goods” and the parents and tweens pass by on the street. Excitement of great scary movies and insane adrenaline rush make the blood circulate quickly waiting at home beside the freshly buttered popcorn. A mere month later, Thanksgiving approaches, gathering all kinds of friends and family to go around and enjoy delectable goods that can only be enjoyed once a year. Ensuing conversations of memories of that passing year, and everything to be thankful for. While all full and tired, you retreat to the couches to watch the years best football games, napping in and out of each quarter from all of the turkey. I love fall as it, as a seaason passed almost in the blink of an eye. here in Florida, they all try for the same concept, but most locals have a hard time understanding what the true feeling of fall is like. They miss out on the leaves gorgeous shine off of the cliffs the leaves give in the crisp cold air, as they are given palm trees and 90 degree heat. Most costumes for halloween are light and thin, so that children do not overheat, and complexes run so close together that a child finishes their trick or treating even before it gets dark. The heat proves exhausting. The chocolate melts as they walk, putting a flame under them to make it home to enjoy its solidity. You still get to enjoy haunted houses, as it doesnt matter where you are from and the boos and ahhs still run fluent. Disney right around the corner, hosts a Horror night expedition that is sure not to miss. Special effects and fake smoke covers the neighborhood of Universal Studios. A secret pass enables you skipping line privledges that ensure you are able to see every house and all of their themes. Masquerade a favorite still amongst adults, however most would rather sit at home with air on high, waiting to pass out candy instead. So the fall brings something different for everyone, something personal from every attatched memory. The new line just unveiled yesterday, is an product of the personal feeling that fall gives to me. Years and months pass and it seems my memories of up north never change, they just get more vivid, as the feelings of fall down in Florida are filled with beach visits and seashell themed dishware. I tried to bring the old ,charismatic colors that scream out their holiday, their season, and overall charm. The warm scents and festive coloring display the energy and passion you would expect from the above… first day of school, the adrenaline from all of the candy, and the crispness of the air passing by your nose. I chose the colors in representation of a Northern fall, yet a southern charm. I hope that everyone is able to enjoy the wreaths personal affects, as the feelings rub off in the pictures almost. make sure to visit, and look at the line at WWW.WreathConnection.Com
