Fall is upon us! Let’s get excited! It is an enriching and inspiring time of the year. I think there is something about the crispness in the air combined with the vibrant colors all around us that bring out the creativity and enthusiasm of so many people. It certainly did so for the authors featured in this post. I myself am getting very excited about pulling out my sweaters and buying more. Plus, we had a pretty crazy summer in Denver and we are all ready for the calm that fall brings to the area. I thought I would spread the anticipation around by sharing some of the best quotes about fall that I found on the internet. 

Did I leave any out? Add them to the comments so I can include them in the post! 

Stay inspired all year long. If you’re a history lover make sure to subscribe to our newsletter here.
