As the last days of summer quietly slip away like sand through toes on a beach, I have stopped to notice the change in the light and temperature that has subtlety come upon us - oh summer, why do you leave us so soon?
Even the air is changing from the "smell of summer" to the transition of crisp, fresh morning breezes and cool evenings that still carry that hint of warmth left behind from the sun's rays that heated the earth during the daylight. Fall is my favorite time of year, though I'm never in a rush for it to arrive, as I've learned to live each day to the fullest and in the moment, never looking too far ahead any longer to what "might be"...
With the thoughts of hunkering down and lighting candles during upcoming fall evenings, as darkness befalls my little home at a much earlier time now, I'm very anxious to read more and more and COOK more and more...and, to purchase Shauna Ahern and her hubby's (The Chef)new cook book that just came out titled, "Gluten-Free Girl and The Chef." Shauna, aka...Gluten Free-Girl is a great writer. I love her blog and really enjoyed her first book. At times, I felt as though I was reading my own life-story and struggles with Celiac Disease before my diagnosis. I've been lucky enough to "friend" her on Facebook and we've chatted a few times. She really seems like a quality person doing a lot for the advancement of Celiac Disease, while making many tummies very happy along the way.
Enjoy the last few hours of summertime and be sure to look UP! The change of light is too beautiful to miss.
