We “fell back” last night and I woke up at 6:45 this morning, only to realize it was actually now 5:45, so I smiled and went back to sleep. Darkness still filling our room and the sound of the radiators singing to life to keep us toasty. It was blissful.

We have now truly moved into Autumn. I am ready for big fat orange hued pumpkins, crunchy leaves, hot apple cider, silky pumpkin pie, walks in the woods hand in hand, flickering candles lit everywhere, scarf and hat kind of weather that only Fall brings.

P.S. My Sunday surprise was a Halloween Krispy Kreme Doughnut! It was orangey, chocolatey and delicious!
