in july, my parents moved to Florida. they've been spending the past 5 or 6 winters in Florida, and they finally made the move down there. my father's not retired, so he still comes up every couple of weeks from spring through early winter, but then they're in Florida until around late march.

it's hot. it's cold. it's hot, not humid. it's cold at night.
welcome to the beginning of fall. it's not quite bundle-up weather, but it's also not blistering hot. it's basically the hardest time of year to look cute, because you're constantly sweating or freezing because you're forcing either cold gear or savoring summer when it's too chilly to savor.
