We are officially in fall and have been for about two weeks now and at least where we are, there is a crispness in the earlier mornings. The change of seasons is slowly becoming evident, though we haven’t had any changing of the leaves yet and I may have to mow the grass one or two times more this year.

Saturdays in the South. Makes my heart happy. There are other reasons I love the fall too, the leaves changing, the cooler mornings and nights, the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Fall is perfect for cuddling, fire pits and hot chocolate.
