In my dream world:

This blustery afternoon, I relaxed the day away at my local horse stables.  I gallivanted around, surrendering my ginger locks to the Autumn breeze.  In between sipping cider, I frolicked in the nearby pumpkin patch, and devoured charred s’mores around a bonfire with my dearest friends.

But slap on a smile, pose in front of a fake horse stable, and make up a ridiculous fantasy world of Autumn goodness.

And pretty soon, you’ll never know the difference between dream and reality.
