Ahhh…it’s finally Fall. Our days have still been warm (in some cases HOT), but the light is changing, the nights are cool, and the leaves are starting to turn. I am so excited!
Here are some things I’m loving for Fall this year.

I noticed my grocery store putting out pumpkins last week. Mini pumpkins are so inexpensive and last the whole season. I’ll be picking up some soon.
It will soon be cool enough for flannel sheets here. I fell in love with flannel sheets a couple of years ago because they are just. so. soft. I bought these Eddie Bauer sheets for our guest room in a stripe and deer pattern, which I love, but they come in a lot of other great designs too.
I can’t wait to make an apple and cranberry crisp for fall. This recipe by Jenny Steffens Hobick looks like a good place to start.
A little book group I’m a part of just read Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love by Dani Shapiro. Dani discovered through a DNA test (the kind so many of us are doing through Ancestry.com, 23 and Me, etc.) that her father was not her biological father. I loved both the parts of this book where she tries to unravel how this came to be and also the parts where she contemplates what makes us who we are. Inheritance is so well written and offers endless possibilities for discussion. I highly recommend it.
I used up my Pickwick & Co. fall candle last year so I asked for another one for my birthday. I love the scents and classic look of these candles, which are made in Kansas City. KC readers, you can find them at Nell Hills, Pryde’s in Westport, and J’Adore in Brookside, among other places. It looks like Pickwick is also planning an online store soon.
Speaking of my birthday, I asked the family go see the Downton Abbey movie with me to celebrate. Have you seen it? My mom said it best: “It was like seeing old friends.”
What are you loving for Fall?
