It’s hard to believe that tomorrow is the first of September (which, you know, is basically the beginning of fall…). The summer has been a bit of a bummer all around for us, from missing our summer vacation to losing our baby to miscarriage, so I’m really itching and aching for the change of a new season.
Autumn has always been my favorite season — it’s a welcome reprieve from the heat and humidity of summer, a season that begs for coziness, it’s bursting with colors and smells and flavors that I love, and it’s also the time of two of my absolute favorite holidays, Halloween and Thanksgiving!
Perhaps my favorite reason for loving fall so much is because it’s when my husband and I met and started dating (ten years ago this October!). It always reminds me of the start of our relationship, the thrill and excitement of meeting someone new and special, realizing it could be the start of something big. Plus, now we have the added excitement of celebrating our son’s birthday in the fall, too!

I discovered that I'm not a fan of the texture of the cold oats, so I just put mine in the microwave for about a minute and voilà! Breakfast perfection.
