Dreaming of Autumn

Now that Labor Day has come and gone, signs of fall are all around us. The leaves have started to get that light yellow hue, signaling that they’re getting ready to turn. There’s a lovely crisp feeling in the evenings after the sun sets, reminding me that jacket weather is just around the corner. My mind is focused on sweaters and boots, hearty chili, apples, roasted chicken and slow cooked homey meals. I’ve had so many desires recently to just curl up on the sofa with a cozy blanket and my Kindle and a hot cup of coffee.

We have so much to look forward to this fall – the weddings of three wonderful friends, our trip to Breckenridge and a weekend getaway with friends in Leavenworth. While the days continue to grow shorter and the rain becomes abundant, I’ll be spending more time in the kitchen whipping up some good fall comfort food and counting down the days until ski season. I can’t wait!
