Do You Remember?
The older I get, the more I love to reflect on the people and events of my past. I wonder if you have some of the same memories I have?
I‘ve always loved fall. I love the colors and the smells and the cool nights. Do you remember how fun it was to play in the fall leaves?

Growing up, we didn’t have the sophisticated toys that kids have today and so we spent a lot of time playing with simple things. I remember how much I loved it when the leaves began to fall. We would spend hours raking the leaves into huge piles and jumping into the piles.
I also remember loving the sound of the leaves as they crunched under my shoes. But even more than that, I loved the way the leaves crunched as my mom walked on them in her high heels and I could hardly wait until for the day I too would wear high heels.
Do you have childhood memories of playing in the fall leaves?
