Fall is my favorite time of year.

There is just something about when the
air gets crisp and the leaves begin to fall.
It makes me want to start baking and decorating.

It makes me want to have a good cup of tea.

"If you are cold, tea will warm you;
if you are too heated, it will cool you;
if you are depressed, it will cheer you;
if you are exhausted, it will calm you."
