What is it about fall that makes for such a wonderful season?
Cool air and short days that make you feel more able to curl up indoors with a great book?
The smell of freshly fallen leaves, the inside of a pumpkin set for carving, or a pumpkin spice latte or hot apple cider?
The taste of apple cider doughnuts? Apple pie? Pumpkin pie? Delicious fall confections?
Flannel quilts and a wood burning fireplace?
Yes, yes, yes, and yes. To all of the above.
This weekend we had our first cool temperatures, I had my first apple cider doughnut (heaven!!), and I took at least two naps under a homemade flannel quilt. Please don’t judge, I am napping for two. 🙂
Aren’t you so glad that fall is here? Or right around the corner?
I have unique memories of childhood falls in Michigan, where I took countless walks with my dad through our woods and had the rare opportunity to enjoy the smell of fall leaves with the sound of Lake Michigan crashing on the beach below.
If you missed the post last fall, this soup is just incredible and remains my fall favorite. Well, unless you count apple cider doughnuts. Have I mentioned those already???
Stay tuned for a post on my new obsession-easy peasey homemade applesauce, as well as a list of great fall reads.
We missed you dear friend.
