    Why this Introvert loves Autumn

    September, October, and November truly bring out my best-introverted self. The leaves begin to change, the temperature starts to drop, and I’m living my best life in cozy sweaters. So here are a few reasons why this introvert loves Autumn, plus a few fall activities that introverts actually enjoy. I can slow down and take a breath before the hectic holiday season.
