Falling into Autumn

  Autumn is here. My favortie season of the year. A time where the sun shies away from the intensity of Summer, and nature wraps everything in gorgeous amber tones.   Some of my most important memories are stored in this autumnal light: my anniversary, New York City, my birthday, and my father’s death.  So, it is […]
