Happy Fall, Y'all!

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
~George Eliot

Today marks the official beginning of Fall. The Autumnal Equinox is here and so is my favorite time of year. After today the nights grow longer (does that mean I'll get more sleep?) and, depending on where you live, the days will be noticeably cooler. Here in Texas, well, let's just say mid to high 80's
is cooler and we'll take what we can get. Although, in our defense, temperatures usually remain very Summer-like during the first week of Fall.

One of the reasons I love this time of year is all the fun things to do. Here's a list of some Fall festivities in my neck of the woods:
  • Love Creek Orchards' Great Hill Country Pumpkin Patch (Every Sat., Sun., Mon., & Tues. in October)
  • Oct. 3-5 Fredericksburg Oktoberfest
  • Oct. 10 - 12 Rockport Seafair (crab races, gumbo cook-off, kayaking, kite boarding)
  • Oct. 17-19 Boerne Fall Festival of Art and Music
  • Oct. 25 Boerne Harvest Moon Celebration
  • Oct. 25 Fredericksburg Food & Wine Fest
  • Oct. 31 through Nov. 9 New Braunfels Wurstfest
Wherever you live, I hope you get out and enjoy this beautiful time of year. I look forward to sharing Fall recipes and decorating tips in the weeks to come!

Thanks for the reminders, Nicole! I forgot to come back and mention that we did the grape stomp thing. The girls had the best time.
