Autumn is upon us.

by practiceradicallove

This morning, the air was cool.  Abnormally cool, and I can’t tell you how much I welcomed it.  Earlier, I wrote about how autumn is my favorite time of the year, hands down.  The combination of warm sweaters, scarves, hats, and a steaming cup of hot cider or tea is probably the most appealing experience in the whole world to me.  Finally, we have some crisp air!  I made a spice cake for a special someone, with pears, raspberry jam, and freshly ground cardamom.  Toasted coconut on top, and there, all in one bite, are the most perfect autumn flavors.
