Well, summer is definitely winding down. Nearly all the schools have started back, and the first official day of autumn is just a few weeks away. While I will miss the lazy afternoons spent by the pool, I’m not too heartbroken, since fall is far and above my favorite season of the year.

Valentine’s day is coming up, and I’ve been thinking about gifts I’ve given or received in the past from significant others.
Christmas and New Year’s are now several weeks’ removed, and it’s given me some time to reflect.
