Happy October!

I hope you are wearing scarfs and boots and drinking hot chai tea lattes. Even though it may only be 60 degrees, live a little and throw on a cardy. Usually not a big fan of colder weather myself, I was pretty much begging for it this year. When I visited my friend Mollie in Portland, Oregon before the semester started, I kept telling her how lucky she was to live in a place where she could breathe. Living in Texas all summer was like a never ending sauna that wasn't there just after you worked out, but all of the time, even when the stars were out. When I got to Portland, I let out a long breath that I think I had been holding for two months.

When I think of fall, I think of Boston. It is the only place I have traveled to in the fall where the leaves actually change colors and there are fruit stands and regattas. See proof of leaves here:

Fall at Baylor is one of my favorite times. The football, the homecoming, the weather, the pumpkins, the thanksgiving, the pigskin. And even though I always expect the seasons to change, it is still refreshing when they actually do because it reminds me that I can change too. That God can change me. He can help me to trust more and stress less and to stop talking so much and just listen sometimes.

So fa-la-la-la-la. Happy that fall has come because it has brought along a lot of goodness with it- like this new Coldplay video. Thankful for the little "paradise" that is Baylor.
