OctPoWriMo Day 4

 Welcome to Day 4! It's the start of a new week in the new month. As we settle into Autumn, I find myself preparing for all the changes that brings - cooler weather, Fall activities, and the approaching holidays. It's my favorite time of year. What does the change of seasons mean to you? Depending on where you live, you might be pulling out the sweaters and the apple cider like I am or maybe you are about to move into Spring. Maybe you are somewhere that doesn't experience these differences. I find that even beyond weather patterns, my feelings and expectations adjust with every new month. What does this time of year mean to you?
