The leaves are changing, theres a crisp edge to the wind, all the clues point to sweater weather!! If you know me at all, you know that I am just not a summer person. Yes I love the beach, ice cream, and the smell of sunscreen. But for me, the changing of the leaves signifies an ultimate breath of fresh air. Talking walks through the park and seeing all the beautiful shades of orange, yellow, green, and brown relaxes my entire body and makes me feel at ease. Fall doesn't only bring with it fresh clean air, it also brings along soup season! Tis the season of throwing veggies together in a pot and letting them melt together for hours until they become a rich, luscious, and deeply satisfying meal. This soup is a perfect throw together soup for any weeknight or weekend meal. Feel free to substitute any veggies you like better, and add spices and herbs that look fresh and green at the supermarket. When you ladle this thick and healthy brew to guests, you'll feel like a green goddess healing the world one soup bowl at a time.

2 cups turnips, peeled and chopped,
