September through December is my favorite time of year.  The oppressive heat of Summer dissipates into the more comfortable temperatures of Fall.  Leaves begin to change colors putting on a spectacular show before dancing their final act through the air in a random spiral to the ground.  Halloween comes and goes and before I know it, Thanksgiving and Christmas are around the corner.
