It is without a doubt my FAVORITE month of the year. When I was younger, it was for selfish reasons--my birthday is on the 23rd. And while I admit that's still a nice attribute, now I enjoy the month more for the smells, the cooler temperatures, the college football, the apple cider, the beautiful colors--EVERYTHING.

On a sad note, my Uncle John passed away this morning. He was a wonderful, loving, caring man, and I will miss him dearly.
