Autumn, for me is surreal. A dream that I never thought would come true. Not in my lifetime, at least.
But God in his goodness, made it possible for me. 🙂
Prior to our departure in the Philippines, the news was that the US will have a cold front. John kept on telling me that I am not going to like it because it’s going to be cold. I asked how cold is it? He said open the freezer, that cold. haha
But you know, I never really understood how it is until we reached Minneapolis airport. The weather was 4 degree celsius!
The wind greeted me as I went out of the airport lobby to look for our ride. I ran back inside because it was so cold, it chilled me to the bone. Yes, that’s how it felt. John laughed and said, I told you it is cold. I said , now I know what you mean. LOL
He said that with the cold front, autumn will follow very soon. 🙂 I was ecstatic! I used to see the pictures only from magazines or cards, you know. So I was hoping that I will get to see it while we’re in the country.
True enough, a few days later. The leaves started changing their colors. The changes are so visible in the South, where my husband comes from.
One thing that really amazes me is the fact that the sun is so bright but when I get out of the car, the cold breeze of the air, knocks me off my feet… 🙂 Then it reminds me why I’m wearing a long sleeve shirt , a jacket and sometimes, mittens…
Coming from a tropical country, the experience is sooo new to me. And contrary to what John thought, I am enjoying every bit of it. 🙂
The burst of different colors on the trees are so amazing, it made me reflect how can one not believe that there’s a supreme being who made all these.
There are no skycrapers in the Southern part of the US, but they were blessed with breath taking views of the lake, the river and the forest. It’s so beautiful I have no words for it.
I just want to thank God for bringing me here at the right moment with my husband. 🙂
