Bouquets of Newly Sharpened Pencils

“Don’t you love New York in the fall?
It makes me wanna buy school supplies.
I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils
if I knew your name and address.”

~ You’ve Got Mail

Watch this clip and mentally transition from summer to autumn with me, will you?

I have been fighting it.

But yesterday I bought a bag of candy corn.

And there is a pumpkin scented candle in my kitchen.

And today I’m wearing fleece lined moccasins.

Autumn is already upon me.

Although, as usual, I feel like the throes of summer are being ripped away from me, I’m ready for fall.

Now I just need to get a Pumpkin Spice Latte and a maple scone and I’ll be well on my way.

(Does it count that I still have two beach trips planned in the next few weeks?)

  1. Beautiful blog, o kindred spirit! I have a centerpiece and several other clusters of colorful school supplies and apples, including tiny ribbon-wrapped bouquets of pencils, decorating the house. Pennants cut from 25 cent scrapbook paper in gingham and primary colors make the hearth and kitchen window and front door look all festive, with a nod to football season. If it weren’t 100+ degrees here each day this week, I’d be baking some apples. Can’t wait to go get the Walnut Spice candle from Williams-Sonoma this weekend. I hear you loud and clear! Fall is on its way! Pumpkin Festival is on my calendar. Perhaps this will be the year I venture into a corn maze.

  2. Oh i love this post in your blog! I love You’ve got mail and everything about the film especially what you have quoted here, we visited New York in December I mean do you still class that as fall or winter? you know once thanksgiving is over? I also love this film because apart from a large apple in a box, the dvd to this film was also given to me as a clue to a magnificient 3000 mile trip from Manchester, England to New York so everytime i watch this film and sleepless in seattle i am just nostalgically transported back in time to visiting NYC and we did actually visit Cafe Lalo’s on west 83rd not once but twice, WOW that place is definately worth multiple visits!
