Fall Reminiscing: Have I Peaked Already?

I love the fall. Who doesn't? Summer is oppressive and heavy and thick. Honestly, I kind of hate it. Fall is heaven, cool and crisp and energizing. 

Everyone says this Oklahoma summer has been mild.  I guess? But moving from Boston to Oklahoma in June was just rude.  I routinely check Boston's weather on my phone and feel a constant pang for the cooler weather.  

It's funny how much weather affects my mood, today the high is in the 50's and I feel like I'm floating on a cloud. I won't get too far ahead of myself, it's supposed to get into the 80's again next week. Ughhhhhh. 

Sidenote: the air was so refreshing this morning I thought it might be nice to introduce some jogging into my and Shep's usual walk.  I should've known. She's a neurotic herding dog and we never jog, I ended up being shrieked at and jumped on until I slowed down to an acceptable crawl. 

Anyway, in honor of this first cool day I thought I'd do a little fall montage. Get ready for some grainy iPhone pics: 

Maine in October
This wasn't a pumpkin patch, I guess you could buy pumpkins if you wanted, but this thing was just parked alongside the road. Adorable. 

Ogunquit, Maine

^^Nothing really to do with fall, but look at how emo Shep is being.

More dog pictures. Obvi.

We also got to go to Germany last October: 

Neuschwanstein Castle

And this is the real reason we went...

Oktoberfest 2013, Munich.

Our tent, Hippodrom, at Oktoberfest.

It was so fun. A few weeks later the Whole Foods down the street from our apartment had its own Oktoberfest. Gahhhh, if I'd have known about that beforehand it would've saved us so much money. Oh well. 

So until we move back to the northeast or into that castle, neither of which seems very likely, it looks like my best fall days are behind me. So sad to have peaked so young.

I'm off to drink a PSL. Basic.
