I am insanely shy. Some people who know me well would beg to differ, but if I was meeting you for the first time, I’d be reciting in my head what I was going to say to you. All 22 years of school, I was deathly afraid of raising my hand in class, and the absolute worst was having a professor who was known to just call on people at random.

It's ubiquitous at this time of year - you'll see and taste and smell it absolutely everywhere. It shows up as home and table décor... in recipes scattered throughout Pinterest... carved into spooky designs, lit from inside, and set on the front porch... baked into pies and served with whipped cream... in seed form, roasted and salted... as a candle fragrance...
The leaves are making their transition from green to the dazzling yellows, oranges and reds, and the chill in the air during some of the most recent mornings makes it clear that autumn is here.
