Happy Autumn Equinox

Autumn Equinox

Happy Autumnal Equinox!

Today is the first day of the fall season. This morning, the girls woke up to a couple tiny tokens and nature treasures from the autumn fairies, an equinox and solstice tradition in our house. The leaves have barely started turning (this photo is of an arrangement I made last year in late October), but it always happens fast. Autumn can be a busy time of year and I hope you’re able to find some solace, even if it’s only for a moment to enjoy the glow of an autumn evening. Maybe even catch a glimpse of that mischievous Harvest Moon.

As a reminder to slow down and take pleasure in this time of year, I wrote a to-do list for myself for these next several weeks.

Take a long walk with only the trees as companions.
Jump in a leaf pile.
Listen to records in the evening twilight.
Write a postcard to a friend.
Attend a fall festival.
Visit a pumpkin patch.
Play outside with my babies.
Be patient.
Stargaze often.


What’s on your autumnal to-do list?
