I do love hot and humid summer days, sunsets at 9pm, drinking cold wine on the hot porch until the wee hours of the night. But there is really no season I love more than fall. The crisp air, the crunchy leaves underneath your feet, the beautiful light for photographs, the feeling that everybody is going back to school, even if you're not actually going back to anything but another week at work. September and October are my favourite months, no contest. It's also the perfect time to sit snuggled on the porch in blankets, with mugs of tea, listening to music while the sun quietly slips over the horizon, earlier, and earlier.
This is what I'll be listening to as it does.
