I love the amber colors that are autumn.
The golds. Reds. Yellows. Browns.

Winter crops.
Crispy, juicy apples. Winter squash baked with brown sugar.
Baked goods.
Pumpkin bread. Pumpkin desserts.
A second cup of coffee on a dark and dreary day.
A potpourri of oranges, cinnamon, cloves,
simmering on the stove, filling the room with its sweetness.

Plaids. Sweaters.
Scarves wrapped loosely around your neck.
Gloves to keep your hands toasty warm with the colder temps.

The slight glimmer of a candle or amber light glowing in the dark.
Enjoying an evening with good friends or relaxing with a good book.
These are some of the things that make wrapping our arms around the upcoming winter just a little easier.
