Hello Fall.

I usually have mixed feelings about fall. Yes, I love the cooler weather, changing leaves, and fall holidays, but these are all reminders that winter is just around the corner. And I am not a fan of winter. This year, however, I’m welcoming fall with open arms. Sophie is just old enough to enjoy some of our favorite fall traditions and I think she’ll get a real kick out of Halloween. Last weekend we spent an afternoon out at one of our favorite local spots – Homestead Farm – to pick a few apples. They also have bales of hay for kids to play on, along with a few dozen goats, chickens, pigs, and a very disapproving alpaca. I can’t wait to go back for pumpkins in a couple of weeks!
