It’s the Most Wonderful Time

Day 25: I am half joking and half serious on this one. This saying is often attributed to Christmas and the holidays, but I really think that autumn is the best time of year. It’s not too cold, not too hot, the air smells great, and the food… the food is on another level.  With this time of year comes a rush of due dates. Papers are due, group projects emerge, and the deadlines that seemed so distant lurk like a peeping tom.

Even though today was a rest day, it was non-stop. But it’s okay, because it’s fall. I love fall. I love fall food. I love fall leaves. And today was a productive day AND I got to make my most favorite meal that I make every fall.
