It’s a fleeting season.
Growing up almost by accident.
Colder days are creeping in.
You’ve got it together this month.
Organize the days of your life.
Change is in the air.
This year was supposed to be different.
Use it to autumn-ify your whole face.
To keep track of the cozier days ahead.
From the pages of a seasonal sketchbook.
