I'm so thankful that fall is just around the corner.
Yes, I know that the calendar says that fall is officially here, but we're on a bit of a time delay in the sunshine state.
Fall and spring are my favorite seasons. I love Christmas, but winter seems a little useless without snow.
Fall means I can cook stew and chili - the only recipes I get excited about making. It also means I can start dressing the kids in their cozy clothes, making my already huggable kids extra snuggly. I love the smells of fall: fireplaces, pies and applesauce in the crockpot. Fall = Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving = stuffing and green bean casserole... yes, there' s a food trend here. I'm not ashamed.
Above all, Fall is the kickoff of the holiday season so I get to look forward to two months of lights, decorations, family, and of course pie.
I had a bit of a false start this week because the weather guys were forecasting a cold front for this weekend. Now it's a "cool front".
I don't care. I'm busting out the candy corn.
