The lovely late Summer has given way to the warm drizzles of Fall. Now is my favorite time of year to light caramel biscotti scented candles in their oversized glass jars and watch the flickering light dance across the walls and glisten off all the buttons and baubles splayed across my bedspread as I knit snoods. October brings the perfect ambiance for a rainy day playlist and drinking massive amounts of hot chai tea... Eating pomegranates and crunching through fireworks of fallen leaves in the dappled twilight... Best of all is the fresh smell of the nighttime; it's crisp and alive as you draw it into your nostrils and stare up at constellations pulled across a dark velvet sky.
I'm happy to share my Rain mix; it's best when played on long drives out to the coast, or sitting in a warm house wrapped up in a fur blanket and a deep read — preferably when the rain is pitter pattering on a front porch or lawn outside your window.
