Truly, autumn is my favorite time of year. The gorgeous days have sun and warmth like summer but there are also luscious chilly days that encourage tea-drinking, enjoying a fire in the fireplace, and snuggling. Granted, it’s been a long time since I’ve enjoyed a fire in the fireplace but I like the quiet introspection of a rainy fall day. To me it is better than the bone-deep chill of winter; that cold doesn’t make me want to relax and contemplate. That cold makes me tense and weary.
I also love autumn for its flavors. I do a lot of baking and cooking. I love the abundance of the summer harvest but I deeply enjoy pumpkin in all its incarnations. Plus, more excuses to cook with cinnamon.
What is your favorite part about autumn? :)
