Fall came with the rain

As most of you on the east coast know, it's been raining for days...

And by raining?  I mean down pouring!  Not that we don't need it.  I can't even remember the last time I had to open my umbrella since we came back here.  And I love wearing rain boots, so I'm okay with a little rain every once in awhile.  But today it finally cleared up.

And it seems that with the advent of all this rain, fall finally came.  I love fall, but I'm always sad to see summer go.  I've been enjoying the bit of an extension to summer for the last couple weeks.  Unfortunately, this weekend they closed the pool and today is the first day since last school year that I've worn pants to work - so I think it's safe to say that fall is officially here in central Virginia.

Now I just have to find a good time to unpack my sweaters, go apple picking, get a pumpkin for Halloween, and dig out the crock pot.  I think I can finally get excited about fall since October is here!
