Gettin’ On Autumn

I had the rare opportunity to drive home at dusk with my girl after a late meeting.

This time of year, us Alaskans start to see things we haven’t seen in quite a few months.

Like stars.

Pitch blackness.

Snow on the mountains.

Aurora borealis.

And she tells me, sometimes at night, when it’s starting to get dark like it is right now, me and Colton just like to go outside and take a big gulp of nighttime air.

And when it’s crisp and it’s sharp and it smells like cranberries….

…that’s how we know it’s Fall.

And there in my truck…holding her sweet hand…watching the stars twinkle over the dusky mountain…

…she reminds me what it’s like to be a child again.
