I think you know that the beginning of Autumn falls each year around the third week in September.

It truly does.

But for me, I really feel like it’s Fall when we get a week or so into the month of October.

So many good things happen at this time of year: the temps begin to moderate; that’s a really big deal for those of us here in the Sunshine State.

A few weeks in the season, NFL games begin to matter. Not to mention the start of the Major League Baseball playoffs.

Here’s a big one: we start to feel a sense of anticipation about all the holidays which we know are just around the corner.

There are many more good things I could mention here. The list is pretty long.

The bottom line is that I truly do love and take great delight in this time of year.

And I sincerely hope that Autumn brings a lot of wonderful things to you and yours.

  1. After many decades as a ‘Northerner’, I often wonder what it would be like living in the southern hemisphere as the holiday season comes around. A Christmas barbie on Bondi Beach would be very strange indeed.
