Fresh cut flowers from the garden…and warming up with hot chocolate after picking them. Ironic, huh?

There’s something I enjoy about every season–the newness of spring, all the free time and excitement of summer, the end of winter (😉), but what I love most about autumn is its irony.

There are so many things I love about autumn–apples are my favorite fruit, the trees are gorgeous, the days are warm, the nights are cool, the biting flies are disappearing, it’s *technically* my birthday season, and I get my fill of Halloween. The irony of autumn only adds to what I love about this time of year.
