  1. Love it!!! Fall is the very best time of year, without a doubt! Looks like you will be busy enjoying the season🙂 You’ve got some great ideas on there and it certainly looks like your area celebrates autumn. We really have a short fall/winter around here, so we usually head to the GA mountains for a long weekend to get our fall fix. There is an orchard where we buy a bushel (which is huge!) of “ugly” apples and then spend hours upon hours making and eating apple sauce. It is heavenly! Happy fall!!!
