Why I Love Fall

I’m taking a little break from blogging (1-2 weeks) because I’m switching over to WordPress finally.  Yep, I’ve made the decision to give Blogspot the much-needed boot and start using WordPress instead, which from what I hear is much better (and to be honest, from what I see on other blogs).  There are actually three other reasons I’m taking a little break from blogging; my feed isn’t working (super annoying), I’m going on vacation soon, and I just started a new job that seems to be keeping me quite busy lately (the vacation was planned before I started my job, wahoo!).  But don’t you worry (because I’m sure you are very, very worried) I’ll be back in no time at all!  Until then, let me share with you some of the reasons I absolutely love Fall.

The Holidays are officially almost here.

I know, I’m crazy, but now that I don’t work in retail I may start to LOVE the holidays again!

I married the love of my life in the fall.  

Yep, our anniversary (one year) is September 29th.

  It’s butternut squash harvest time!  

I hope you love butternut squash as much as we do in this house because in the coming months you will be bombarded with butternut squash recipes.

It’s college football season.

Need I say more?

And here are some of my favorite fall recipes from the past….

  Alright friends, I’ll see you in a couple of weeks.  For now, it’s time to celebrate one year with the man of my dreams!  Thanks for reading, and enjoy this beautiful time of year, ok?!
