Will someone please tell me, what is it about this autumn that is absolutely intoxicating nearly everyone I know?? [via pinterest] I mean, autumn has always been a lovely season. But this year? People everywhere are crushing all over again on Autumn and its beauty. Autumn is such a gloriously regal time.
