That Autumn Feeling

Autumn is hands down my favorite season. The temperatures finally get cold enough to wear a sweater while enjoying a huge cup of tea with a good book,  pumpkin, apple and cinnamon flavors reign supreme once more and I finally get to layer on scarves and jackets that make up my massive collection.
