friday: dance party u.s.a.
As much as I love summer, fall is my favorite season. With so much texture, color and coziness all around - our house always feels more like home in the fall; probably because we're inside more. Woolen blankets are at easy reach, a bowl of winter squash has become the centerpiece of our dining room table and soups and stews are working their way into the weekly menu.
Pumpkin picking is in our future and lots of apples (eating, cooking, baking) and maybe some homemade cinnamon ice cream. We're going to tackle some furniture rearranging this weekend to better establish a landing zone in our house now that coat season has arrived. Pickle wants to make caramel apples, to which I cannot say no.
p.s. here's a song to start the weekend. Get your dance party going!
p.p.s. seven lovely ideas for au natural halloween decor.
p.p.p.s. As a former Dairy Queen, I loved Amy Poehler's essay on her first summer job.
p.p.p.p.s. oh my goodness.
Happy eating, -s.
