Smells like Fall!!

So even though these days have been very very warm in Massachusetts, the nights have been cool and crisp, a sure sign that fall is headed our way. I love fall. The colors, needing to wear a sweater, and the feel of the sun and the cool wind at the same time... and the smell! The smell of leaves and cold

And the best thing about fall I think is that you can still be outside doing really great things outdoors, and you can be inside without feeling too guilty. In the summer it is so hard to be inside when it is nice out (at least in New England where the summer is so short and unpredictable) because you feel like you are wasting a day, a day that could be one of only a handful in the year where it is hot and you can wear a bathing suit. But in the fall you can be outside hiking or gardening or doing a project around the house, or you can be inside baking a pie or reading a book and just be cozy.

But best of all is that it starts to be cool enough to bake and cook comfort food. Mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, butternut squash soup, stews and chili, homemade bread. Those are the smells of my kitchen in the fall, and the coziness of baking something delicious for the people around me is the best feeling of the fall. -Lindsay

Last Days of Summer

Summer is not over yet. The weather is still warm and the sun is still shining, and of course the water is the warmest it will be for the entire year. This is why August is the best and worst part of summer. School is right around the corner for some of you, and that means cold frosts, close toed shoes, and sweaters... but let's not get ahead of ourselves here. I say take the last month of summer to do all of those things that you said you would do later! Finish projects, have a yard sale, go to the beach, or just read a book for pleasure! And throw on those sundresses one last time to go to your local farmer's market or fair. Here are some fun accessories for the end of summer. Enjoy the last couple weeks of it!
