Autumn is my absolute favorite time of year! The colors and smells, the crisp, misty mornings and evenings, the pumpkin spiced lattes, NFL -- I love it all!
I plan on embracing the autumn (now that it's actually arrived) with open arms. I look forward to making fresh apple cider and fluffy pumpkin bread, eating the lovely seasonal vegetables, and enjoying the sounds of crunchy leaves under my feet.
What makes this time of year even better is my birthday, the day before Halloween, which gives me the opportunity to be super festive. I dress up just for the little trick-or-treaters up the road -- all four of them. I also carve some pretty fab jack-o-lanterns. This year I'll be 30 but I'm not at all emotional about the concept. I'm actually a little excited!
