Today, I escaped into the city to study at Starbucks (and to continue the search for the perfect not-too-big-but-not-too-small-bag). On the train as I was fiddling with my I-pod trying to find the songs that I downloaded last night, a woman sit down beside me. I shifted in my seat, glanced up and what I saw made me want to yell out loud. She was wearing a turtleneck. And this morning, I put Sophie in an undershirt, a long sleeved bodysuit, a cardigan and a little knitted cap for good measure. Bailey, that dear sweet boy, even asked to wear a scarf while he waited for the bus. I would have gladly obliged but we were already at the bus stop, waiting on said bus when he asked about it.
Oh, letting us not leave out all the Starbucks-y details- I had a hot white chocolate mocha that I drank setting by the automatic doors that when opened let in the chilliest of breezes.
All that to say, I think we can now officially, safely say that fall has arrived. Remind me of my jubilation when I am complaining about how cold it is, ok?
