Autumn is my absolute favorite time of year, season wise. Usually from September to November the blue of the sky changes hue, the sun light turns more golden and the air becomes crisp and clean.

The changes are very distinct and specific and I always noticed them in VB, especially at the beach. The ocean looked a deeper blue and the sand a darker gold during this time. It’s also when the tourists would stop coming and I would go to the beach at least once a week, if not more. Having spent the majority of my life by that beach I truly miss it, it’s a part of me that is missing when I’m not there.

Today, October 1st, it FINALLY looks and feels like Autumn here in the UK. Luckily for me, I can sit next to my window and look at the crisp blue sky and golden sunshine and feel the cold, clean air and reminisce (and cry) without anyone seeing me because I’m working from home.

It makes me realise just how much I really do miss VB and now that I’ve been granted UK citizenship I’m wondering if I really want to stay. Right now I think no, I miss it too much and want to go back. We’ll have to see what happens.
