The equinox brings autumn today September 22, at 3:44 P.M. CDT. This means the days grow shorter, the nights longer, and the temperature begins to drop. I love this time of year, my soul comes alive in the fall. I love the rich colors of the falling leaves. The crisp fresh air and the fragrance of firewood burning at night are all indicative of this season.
The fall brings with it delicious flavors like pumpkin spice, apple cider and the warmth of hot buttered rum for those cool autumn nights.
This is also the time for the stars to come out in Hollywood, with the highly anticipated releases.
