Fall quotes are always in season, especially when observing changing scenery. That’s why I compiled a list of my 25 favorite passages that you can use with your Fall social media photo posts.
I love how October includes bold colors and wardrobe changes along with its subtle signs of a steaming hot drink or the smell of something baking in the oven.
