Smells like Fall

We've been having the cool nights and mornings for a while now but for some reason, this morning was the first time it really smelled like fall outside to me.

Do you know what I mean?

A crispness in the air....All the leaves and grass are still green but you can smell it coming. I don't mind so much- I do love fall. But we have had such a very mild summer this year that I feel we barely had time to enjoy it before it is leaving. (When the summers are super hot and muggy I am generally just as happy to see them go. Not a fan of extreme temperatures.)

I sort of felt that way last night actually. This morning still seemed to have a "summery air" about it...maybe I just wasn't awake enough when I went to get coffee.

I know exactly what you mean. On our bikes this morning, I commented to Stacy that this was the first morning that made me think September is here.

Totally! I got a little sad because I have really enjoyed this summer.

It is very sad to come to Chicago when this is happening...you can just see the Chicogans starting to mourn the inevitable loss of warmth.
