I did forget, did you? In Illinois, spring is envigorating, summer is sublime, winter is the worst, and fall, that's an epic love story told in these 20 photographs.

Hello Fall, you look amazing!

The older I get, the more I realize that my soul was created for the peaceful, easy feeling of fall, just like the song says, I know the season between summer and winter won't let me down.

'Cause I got a peaceful easy feelin'
And I know you won't let me down

#FallInIllinois

From my seat of consciousness, no season inspires me as fall does. My wife and I share 4 children and summer can get a bit over-the-top busy, so the transition to fall has a way of just washing over you like taking the perfect shower, or getting underneath the softest blanket.

Whether or not you have a significant other, or kids, we're all moving through life at a pretty high rate of speed. That's not good.

What could you do right now, to slow down at this moment, just for a few minutes? 

What's below is how I spent the last few minutes slowing my life down a little, to change my thoughts today. What I said earlier is true, I forgot just how beautiful fall in Illinois looks.

Keep that song from The Eagles in your head as you look at these photos shared by other Illinois fall lovers.

'Cause I get a peaceful easy feelin'
And I know you won't let me down
'Cause I'm already standin'
I'm already standin'
Yes, I'm already standin'
On the ground
