Sounds a little ironic to say since school has already been in session for several weeks, but according to the autumn equinox, this is it. I know, crazy word. It basically means the day when the sun travels directly over the equator before it tips the seasons forward, lending to those nostalgic falling leaves and crisp morning air.
Can you tell I’m a little excited? It’s our favorite season around…Autumn. Even the sound of the word makes me long for pumpkin spice lattes and smoldering mulberry candles on the mantle. YEAH!
Swimming at friends’ before the pools are frostbitten
Roasting a lot more marshmallows
