Fall is here! I really enjoy the changing of seasons. When I was a little girl growing up in the Chicago suburbs the fall air was cool and smelled like burning leaves. Everyone would rake their leaves into piles by the side of the road and burn them. One of my greatest pleasures was walking home from school and crunching the big piles of the brown super crispy leaves with my feet. A few things I love about fall...
-harvesting herbs from my garden and knowing I will use them in my Thanksgiving Dinner
-gathering pumpkins to line our front walk
-gathering seeds, pine cones and leaves with my kids for fall art projects
-harvest foods such as corn chowder, winter squashes, apple pie, pumpkin pie and beef stew
-crisp cool Autumn air
-sweaters, I have always loved sweaters
-fresh apple cider
-crunching fall leaves
