The pleasures of fall

Fall is a great season! The crisp weather, beautiful leaves and the fact that it is still warm enough to get outside and enjoy the weather without melting into a puddle means that autumn is the top season in our book.
Here are some of our favorite things about fall:
- Getting out cozy blankets. There’s nothing like cuddling up in a warm throw blanket to watch a movie. Try this one from Pottery Barn in an autumn-appropriate plaid.
- Time to bake! Now that summer’s heat is over, you can finally turn on the oven again without sending a heat wave through the house. And all the fall foods! Apples, pumpkins, other root vegetables — yum! Here are some ideas from The Kitchn for fall cookies.
- Fun fall activities: Going to an apple orchard or pumpkin patch. Picking a Halloween costume. Jumping in a pile of leaves. Going on a hayride. Building a bonfire. Carving jack-o-lanterns. Have a ball with fall!
