I love September because it’s the beginning of the fall season and fall is my favorite time of year! It always reminds me of going back to school: fresh notebooks, the smell of sharpened pencils and giant piles of books. The days get shorter and cooler, but there’s still plenty of sunshine for autumn walks and nature hikes. The perfume of frost and chimney smoke drifts through the air as the nights creep in closer, perfect for cozying up with a good book. Sweaters and wellies and cider, plaid skirts and boots, rainy days spent by the fireside, the soft glow of lamplight in the darkness, pumpkin spice lattes and peacoats, dreams of crunchy leaves and baking cookies . Autumn is truly a magical season.
