I'm a lover of all things fall! Today is extra special because it marks the first official day of fall for the Northern Hemisphere.  According to The Old Farmer's Almanac, we turned from summer to fall at exactly 2:50 a.m. today. Fun fact, it's also the 266th day of 2019. Those negative Monday vibes can't get a fall lover down today.

The leaves are going to start changing a lot fast than normal and it's not due to the temperature. It's actually in part due to the amount of sunlight and photosynthesis. Days are getting shorter, so leaves will start changing faster--neat, huh?

There are so many wonderful things to celebrate and look forward to. Fall in love with these fall dates!
