Autumn: The Season of “Me”

September ended and they woke me up. The leaves fell, the clouds came out, the blue of the sky darkened by a few shades and maybe the wind broke a couple of things.

As a 1 year anniversary, I decided on having a major #throwback post to remember all the fun things and posts I accomplished this year.
