Who Knows Where the Time Goes?

I have often thought that there is a time when the seasons "click"--especially when summer turns to fall. I could not help but feel that we had a taste of fall this week in Richmond. I needed to wear a long sleeved shirt Thursday evening. We needed a light blanket on the bed that night. Mums and pumpkins began appearing at our local grocery stores, and students are heading back to school! On the soundtrack of my life, the Judy Collins standard "Who Knows Where the Time Goes" is one of my "fall," autumnal songs. Coincidentally, I happened to hear that song by chance twice this week, both the Judy Collins version and a version by Eva Cassidy. Like fall itself, that song always makes me a bit wistful for the past and leaves me wondering what the colder months hold in store. Soon, we will be planting mums and pansies around the house and lighting the fires in our fireplaces. We opened our doors at Maury Place to our first guests in October 2008, and here it is almost one year later! I cannot believe how quickly time has passed! It has been great fun, and we have so enjoyed meeting so many great people! Thank you to all for your support, and we look forward to another beautiful fall at Maury Place.
