Autumn fireworks

We often spend too much of fall hating life because it only means winter is that much closer. We've lived here forever and the cold never gets easier. But it's not so bad to actually appreciate this time of year when friends in L.A. are complaining about 90-degree days and no seasonal changes. Maybe it isn't so bad up here in the Midwest. Or we just keep telling ourselves that.
