“Wild is the music of the autumnal winds amongst the faded woods.”William Wordsworth

This past Saturday, September 22nd, brought the Autumn Equinox to all of us in the northern hemisphere. Though it doesn’t quite feel like Fall here in Alabama yet (almost), the changing of the seasons has us looking forward to savory meals, cozy outerwear, crisp air, and a mosaic of colorful leaves. In honor of the first day of Fall, this week we share a few of our go-to cool-weather wardrobe pieces, favorite recipes, and a bit of history on Autumn holidays from around the world.
