Enriching Lives Through Extraordinary Service
The heat of autumn is different from the heat of summer. One ripens the apples, the other turns them to cider.
– Jane Hirshfield
Isn’t it crazy how Summer can come and go in the blink of an eye? It may still feel a bit like Summer, but Fall is officially here. To get in the mood for some Autumn fun, we wanted to share some of our favorite things about Fall.
Pumpkin Flavored Food + Drink
You either hate it or you love it, but ’tis the season for all things pumpkin spice. This Fall favorite is not limited to just the Pumpkin Spice Lattes… there are many ways to incorporate your favorite flavor. Take a look at 50 Ways To Get Your Pumpkin Spice Fix courtesy of Taste of Home.
It’s the smell of cinnamon sticks and cloves for us… this seasonal favorite not only makes for a delicious mulled wine/cider but keeps the home smelling like pure comfort. Create your own mulling spices blend to make a delicious mulled wine, spiced apple cider, tea, coffee, syrup, or even stovetop potpourri thanks to Julie Blanner.
Oh, Halloween. Of course, when you think of Fall – Halloween comes to mind fairly quickly. Whether you celebrate Spooky Season for all of Autumn or just on the 31st, this list of movies coming to Netflix is sure to satisfy your need for thrill and fright.
Leaves Changing Colors
We couldn’t leave out the LEAVES. One of Fall’s most photographed moments is the leaves transforming from green to the many shades of orange, yellow, and red we all love. A site to see, this seasonal change is one to truly enjoy. Fear not! If you don’t know where to go to see this change, we have a list of Best Fall Foliage Views in the U.S.
