I've been home from Iraq for nearly a month now and all I can say is that it's great to be back home in lovely Central New York! There are so many things that I missed about CNY, from the people to the festivals, I even missed the snow! There's something to be said for a little deprivation here and there, because it certainly makes one appreciate the little things in life that much more!
Fall in CNY is my favorite time of the year as well. The leaves are changing, with a broad spectrum of bright colors on full display. Pumpkins and goblins abound as Halloween approaches, and festivals are a'plenty as communities celebrate the Fall season. Oktoberfest in Baldwinsville, Pumpkinfest in Oswego and Applefest in Lafayette are three of my favorites and I missed them last year!
It's great to be home!
