Moving in the Right Direction

Fall has always been my favourite season. The clear blue skies, wool socks and warm apple cider of fall will always beat the sticky humidity, dusty road work, and stinging, biting bugs of summer for me. There’s so much pressure to enjoy the short Canadian summer, but fall changes things. Fall is all about relaxing, snuggling up under a big blanket with the person you love and watching the leaves change so slowly, you’ll hardly recall when it actually happened.
