I love finding new sites/blogs that encourages creativity. I'm not a baker. I can cook just fine thank you but please don't ask me to bake! Check out this wonderful blog that has me actually considering baking a little homemade pie! Too cute!
I'm already longing for cooler temperatures to visit us here in the Houston area. I love Fall and Winter weather. Watching pumpkins make appearances on front porches and table settings makes my heart sigh. There is something about those wonderful gourds that warms me to the core and stirs excitement deep within me.
Maybe it's all of the festivities of the seasons that are behind this, I don't really know, but I enjoy it thoroughly. I think some it has to do with the fact that we get to wear sweaters, sometimes, during this time of the year. I gladly move my much loved cardigan sweater out of it's drawer and put it nearby. I smile as I slide my arms in it's comfy fabric and breathe in the wonderful scent of our fabric softener mingled with the scents of Fall. I feel like I get a gentle hug each time I put on my beloved cardigan.
With thoughts of Fall come thoughts of fabulous meals shared with family and friends. And, of course, when you share a meal with those whom you love you think about dessert. I want to make batches of those adorable pies-in-a-jar and keep them ready for impromptu visits from loved ones. I think they would even make adorable little gifts for Christmas. Put them in a sweet little basket with some cute napkins, mabe add a sweet candle, and you've got an adorable, one-of-a-kind gift.
Oh Fall, please don't delay. Please join us soon.
