Since it hasn't really cooled off at all, I am going to post some fall pictures from last year for a little inspiration.
The good news is, I have heard rumors we are starting to get some Libby's Pumpkin in this area...now I just need to go out and find some!
I mentioned some of my favorite things about fall here...I just love the changing colors, the crunch of leaves beneath my feet, the cool, crisp weather that only requires a light sweater, Halloween decorations, hayrides, bonfires, hot coffee, sitting by the fireplace and the smell of the wood burning, all things pumpkin...and apple...and the cinnamon-y spicy flavors of apple crisp, pumpkin pie and spiced cider. I love homemade soups, chili, warm oatmeal and the other cool weather comfort foods. I also really want to set aside time to carve pumpkins for Halloween this year...and toast up the pumpkin seeds!
For some reason, fall gives me the feeling of a fresh beginning...perhaps because of all those years that fall marked the beginning of a new school year? At any rate, it is a good time for me to re-commit to my health goals and make some changes for the better!
What are you looking forward to during the fall season?
