It's amazing how many people I hold dear to my heart were born in this glorious month. I can't think of a better month to enter this world, can you? How can you beat warm hands held on cool nights, colorful leaves, and cider? Or the homecoming parade, football games, or soups and stews made to stock the freezer for the winter ahead? Or the discovery of last year's most recently purchased sweaters, not worn enough to be tiresome, waiting to keep you toasty? Or flannel sheets?
