It's November. Finally. My favorite month. Despite our warm days, humid breezes, and only brief cold snaps (so far!), my internal calendar has started whispering that it's time to slow down, turn inward, and begin enjoying the beauty and home-focus that comes with this season... fireplaces, sleeping garden beds, extra feathers and fur on our backyard visitors, soup, jackets, blankets, dark mornings and dark evenings... we're ready.
