It's October 13th, 2009. We're on the climb towards the peak of fall. It's this time of year that I begin to miss Minnesota.
Here in VA it is still about 60-70 degrees, with the sporadic 80-85 degree days. It doesn't feel like fall.
I miss Minnesota.
I miss the crisp fall air.
I miss miss wearing my Northface jackets with my Burberry Scarf.
I miss wearing boots.
I miss wearing my hair straight without worrying about humidity or rain.
I miss going to Friday night football games and cuddling under a blanket.
I miss my Minnesota hair stylist, the only stylist I trust.
I miss turning on the heat in my car.
I miss wearing fall fashion and feeling like it fits in with the environment.
I miss Halloween excitement, dressing up, trick or treating, watching Halloween movies on Disney and ABC Family.
I miss petting my horse, Hawkeye, feeling his white fur get thicker as the air gets colder.
I miss my puppy Ellie, playing in the leaves and entertaining herself as if she needed nothing else in the world.
I miss Holy Family Catholic High School.
I miss Von Maur at Eden Prairie Mall - They have the BEST selection of jeans and I can't wait to find the perfect pair over winter break.
However, I know that come January/February, when MN has 3 feet of crunchy snow and the freezing wind makes you cry, I will feel blessed to be in VA.
