84, 82, 91, 81, 90… Hardly feels like fall equinox here in SoCal. The vacationers have gone back to wherever they’re from while the locals are quickly reclaiming the beach and waves. There is little other visual evidence that fall has arrived. No Uggs, no pumpkin spice lattes, no changing leaves, no rain boots- nope, none of that in sight.
Instead for us SoCal locals, we’re eating guavas, riding our bikes to the farmer’s markets and I’m still telling everyone to drink their sunscreen ;).
Thankfully with equal parts sun and moon, we’re reminded to find that balance, possibly reassess or transform our thinking, launch a new project… And while everyone is talking about change, fall is an awesome time to simply reassure ourselves that the seeds we planted back in the spring are still worth working hard to harvest now that fall has arrived.
If you’re here in SoCal, I’m helping keep life cool and immunity in-check at The Chalkboard Magazine next week during yet another wave of hot, high temps. Click over to Pure Mamas for my stay-healthy pro-tips if you and the kids are illin from the back-to-school rush.
Happy fall equinox!
