There’s nothing quite like fall: the familiar hues, the cool weather, and the return of early nightfall. The season is marked by family gatherings, tradition, and celebrations as the world puts the finishing touches on the current year and prepares to transition into a new one. This year, I decided to commemorate the return of one of my favorite seasons by grabbing my best friend, heading to my favorite city, and taking lots of pictures. As the smell of sweet potato pie gets ready to overwhelm our collective nostrils, I encourage you to smile more, remind your friends and family that you love them, and appreciate all of life’s small blessings. I pray God’s peace and favor abide in your life this season.
