The End of Summer

It is a week of change. Summer has officially ended (At the Autumnal Equinox. The Autumnal Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere is around September 22nd) and autumn is here. The trees in our back yard know this and have begun to shed their first layer of leaves.

I LOVE AUTUMN! It is hands down my favorite time of year. Sweatshirts, nostalgia, pumpkin patches, Halloween, apple cider, trees, the crispness of the air... I could go on - maybe I will for a bit... mums, hay bales, squash, corn mazes, competitions for the largest pumpkin, harvest moons, Oktoberfest, Weston MO's applefest, AND Songbird Cafe's Chili Contest!!!

There is a lot to enjoy and look forward to in these upcoming months.
