Autumn Hibernation Time

October 22, 2015 0 Comments
Ahhh it’s that time of the year again.
It’s officially reached the South.
It’s cooled down.
The humidity is gone {thank goodness}.
Our grass is finally recovering from the terrible drought.
The leaves are changing color.
The skies are brilliant blue.
It’s the season of Pumpkin everything, wonderful boots, and coziness.
It’s also that time of the year where the mornings are so darn dark and cold
that I cannot bear to get out of bed and into the shower.
I love that in the South, summer seems to last for 6 months of the year
and spring and autumn last for a couple months as well;
winter is the shortest season.
It was one of the BEST discoveries I made the first year living down here.
The simple fact that we get adequate warm months,
makes it easier to survive the change of seasons.
With that in mind,  I still find it funny how I turn into a complete bear this time of year.
Walks at 5:00am with the dogs are not so bearable.
It’s totally dark and cold,
and getting dressed takes more effort and more layers.
Pippa, our eldest fur baby, is just like me.
Alarm goes off and she is straight under the covers.
Adamantly denying that it is time to wake up.
The struggle is real.
I remember in kindergarten we were instructed to all bring in a little stuffed bear,
and in an effort to teach us about animals that hibernate
our stuffed animals had to stay in our little cubbies until spring.
{Except during nap time.. then our bears could come out and cuddle.}

This will be my little cuddle bears and me until next year…

On a bright note… I heard it snowed in New York last weekend.  haha 🙂

I'm Rose. Nice to meet you! :) I'm a Southern transplant from the Northeast. I have two fur baby pups, Pippa and Watson, and the best partner a girl could ever ask for, Paul. I'm a believer of making the most of every moment. As much as I might try to slow down, busy seems to me my word. I'm a busy person, with a busy mind, and a ever growing list of things to do, places to go, books to read, recipes to make, and things to learn! I started this blog in the winter of 2013 as a way to allow family and friends {800+ miles away} to be a part of our lives. It's also served as a creative outlet for me to share projects, photos, travel, passions, thoughts, and a couple recipes. Being a first time home owner, we've been on a quest to transform our cookie cutter house into a home. ❤ I hope you enjoy this creative space.
