Summer is most assuredly my favorite season, but my goodness, autumn sure has a lot going for it. I find myself falling in love with it more each year. This week I've been noticing the overwhelming, amazing, beautiful smells of the season. Outside - the ground, the wet leaves, the chimney smoke in the air; and Inside - a constant fire now, wool, and preserving the last of the season's harvest. I close my eyes as often as I can remember - to inhale and exhale as slowly as I can - taking it all in before it's gone.
Autumn smells so good.
