Is Autumn not the best season of all the seasons? I lately find myself daydreaming about the leaves changing, the smells of cinnamon & nutmeg, carving pumpkins, picking apples, and drinking gallons of cider & fall-y beverages (*cough* chai tea lattes *cough*).

I don't know where this fascination with fall came from, maybe it's because I'm a September baby, but my favorite season is by far this wondrous few months between summer and winter.  The smells, the apple orchards, the bliss of layered clothing... I love it all. Chicago is such a great place to enjoy Autumn and I am so happy to be spending our 2nd fall here. 

One of the best places to enjoy the season is the campus at my Alma Mater;
the University of Illinois. My husband, Joe, and I are heading back this weekend for Homecoming and I could NOT be more excited! Tailgating, Football, the Curtis Apple Orchard, the Arboretum where we were engaged... man, I love U of I! I highly recommend a weekend visit to anyone who has the opportunity to stop by. I hope you all are enjoying the scenes and smells of Autumn!
