I have lived in New England for a better part of five years. After living in a one-dimensional climate in Florida for years, I’m thrilled to have all four seasons again.
This time of year takes your breath away in New England. The vista on the back roads of Connecticut is vibrant and the skies are the truest blue. The chill in the air gives you a charge that lasts almost long enough to get you through winter. Halloween and Thanksgiving are just around the corner. Football is on TV, soups are on the stove, and fires get lit for the first time in a year. Autumn in New England lives up to its billing and makes me nostalgic for a season I haven’t even experienced yet.
