So my dear B, this was the day. As it was the first of many more to come I was actually pretty excited to stay inside, put on my favorite wool sweater that has gotten me through the past two winters, and be excited about rain. To celebrate I made my favorite autumn soup. It's so yummy and it's gluten free and vegan so you can eat it!!!!!
