The one thing I miss most about Seattle and the Pacific Northwest are the seasons, especially my favorite - autumn.  I love the rustic colors and how the glow of the tree outside my apartment would cast brilliant shadows of yellow, orange, and red across my bedroom.  I always love seeing a pile of crisp leaves on the ground, only for me to kick them up and throw them around.  The weather was brisk enough to feel cozy in a light sweater and scarf and I could sit in a coffee shop sipping on a latte and people watching all day.  I miss this so much!
