"Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past 
or present are certain to miss the future." ~ John F. Kennedy

Although autumn doesn't officially arrive for another week, there are subtle signs of change in the air: Days are shorter, nights are cool and damp, fields are turning golden, and if you look carefully, you'll catch brilliant glimpses of changing leaves. I always look forward to the shift from languid summer to brisk autumn.  Although it has become almost cliché, here's my list of fall favorites: walking through the woods -- the smell and sound of dried leaves beneath my feet, bundling up in sweaters and scarves, warm tights and comfy boots (I feel more "me" at this time of year), Packers football, cozy fires, lovely soft yarns for knitting projects, steaming cups of coffee, tea, or cider, bold red wines, carving pumpkins and roasting the seeds. This year, there is also the prospect of even bigger changes...stay tuned!
