Happy Fall Y'All ...

Today, in the Midwest, is the First Day of Fall. What does Fall mean to you? Fall can mean so many different things: visits to the Apple Orchard, or even the Pumpkin Patch; it can mean that the days are getting shorter; lighting the fireplace on a cool autumn evening; or to some, it means that winter is just around the corner.

While all of these things can be true, I know that Fall is my favorite time of the year. It takes me back to the times when I was still in school; getting organized, anticipating that first day of school, new school supplies and shopping for the school wardrobe. I know most everyone else tends to do their organizing in the spring, but I still tend to do my "spring" cleaning in the fall. I can't wait to unpack the sweaters and turtlenecks, clean out the closets and reorganize/redecorate things around the house.
I love all the scents of Fall: pumpkins, apples, leaves falling...even the scent of baking and spices. In my house, it seems that more baking is done; probably because the weather turns cooler and since I love having the windows open, the oven helps to heat the house.
And what about all those crockpot meals? Chili, Chicken Pot Pie and let's not forget, SOUPS! I love making soup in the crockpot: Chicken Noodle, Brocoli Cheese and Potato to name a few. I suppose now you would like the recipes...I think we should post these. What do you think?
Or maybe Fall is my favorite season because we can finally bring out all the decorations that we have collected over the years. The Halloween tree (yes, we really do have one), Carved Pumpkins and all the other fall decor.
What does Fall mean to you? Apple Cider Donuts? The Apple Orchard? Pumpkin Patch? Or maybe, it's Halloween and Trick or Treating with your children? Raking the Leaves into a big pile and then jumping into them? Baking pies? Carving Pumpkins? Decorating for the season? Stay tuned as we take you on a "Seasonal Fall Journey".

  1. Fall is my absolute favorite time of year! I love putting on sweaters and jeans and snuggling around a campfire under a warm cozy blanket. We always take a trip to the pumpkin farm, too, and bring home way too many pumpkins. :) Last year we even had our own real life Pumpkin when Parker was born.

    Fall is great. And definitely post some recipes. I need all the help I can get in that area!
