Autumn hold such a special place in our hearts. Especially once October arrives and we can finally leave behind the stresses of last minute summer vacations, back-to-school preparation, and other season change induced strife. Fall is really settling in and the more vibrant the leaves become, the more our spirits yearn for the simple pleasures of the season like pumpkin carving by the fire, enjoying a hayride, or sipping on a mug of warm apple cider.
