I am enamored with autumn, and I have been counting down the days til fall since the beginning of August! Today marks the official first day of my favorite time of year. The leaves have begun to blush, the hay has been rolled into bales, and the nights are crisp with the promise of hot apple cider and hearty stews.
The old farm house is heated entirely by wood, and as the nights begin to bite, my husband went out yesterday and chopped down a small pine. We were glad for it the next day, for we were caught in a cold rainstorm as he tried to get his truck to start! Tell me, what do you most treasure about this transitional time of year?
