Fall Is In The Air

It's that time of year again. You can smell it in the air, the smell of the autumn leaves. Comfortable temperatures, football on Saturdays and leaves falling. I can't wait for the trees to start turning shades of yellow, orange and red. Fall is the most beautiful time of year.

County fairs with cotton candy and funnel cakes, YUM! I am so excited! Do you have any favorites for fall? Leave a comment, recipes, favorite locations during the fall months anything. I would love to hear stories from everyone! : )


  1. I love this pumpkin cupcake recipe that I got from I used Pilsbury ready made frosting instead of the glaze. I like to call them muffins so I can eat them for breakfast and not feel guilty! :)
