Fall is the season for brisk walks and evenings nestled by the fire, wrapped in a warm sweater. It’s not too cold to step outside to enjoy the autumn hued leaves falling to the ground, yet the days of summer picnics al fresca are gone. What a perfect time of year to invite a few friends over to share a homemade meal, enriched by fall flavors such as cinnamon, pumpkin and clove! Light a fire, take on a baking project and nestle up with a spiced cocktail in hand. With so many recipes and craft projects available online, there are endless ideas for activities to try out this time of year!
