Get into the Fall Spirit

You don't have to wait for Christmas this year to get into the spirit. Fall has arrived and I can't explain how happy I feel!

So many things come to mind when I think of Fall: pretty leaves, warm colors, apple cider, pumpkins, halloween, sweaters, caramel apples, cinnamon, pumpkin spice lattes, apple pie, cold pillows, and the list goes on. It's without a doubt my favorite season of the year. I've already made my way to the local pumpkin patch with Rob and nothing makes me happier!

So make time this weekend for your local pumpkin patch and pick up some pumpkins and apple cider and officially welcome the best season of the year! When you smell that apple cider brewing on your stove, you'll thank me!

Quick Apple Cider

  • Store bought apple cider

  • Mulling spices

  • Orange Peel

  • Cloves

  • Cinnamon sticks

On the stovetop, warm up the apple cider on low heat. Add mulling spices, the orange peel "spiked" with cloves, and a couple cinnamon sticks.

Enjoy with apple cinnamon muffins (orchards usually have yummy mixes) topped with a little apple butter, yum.

NOW do you feel the Fall spirit? I thought so :)
