The Coming of Autumn

October 16, 2012

So it's been busy. Really busy in the best way possible, and I've definitely neglected my blog. But I'm back! And lots of posts are in the wings. (Also, please note the new address…you can update your email subscription and feed reader at the top right. Thanks ahead of time!)

For just a moment though, before this week takes off, I want to pause and bask for just a moment in the loveliness ushered in by the onslaught of autumn. I love fall. I love the sweaters and scarves and crisp weather and colors and cozy evening and everything else that fall brings…

Baking and pumpkins and warm sweet breads.


Rainy Sunday afternoons filled with book-review writing and and football watching while the savory smell of a gigantic pot roast drifts from the stove.


Chilly hikes to Old Rag to take in the clear air and colorful views.

How are you celebrating autumn this week?
