Fall is here!!!

So, if you can't tell by my overusage of the exclamation points, I LOVE FALL. I love everything about it, and it seriously gets me so giddy just thinking about it. Although, thinking about it now makes me wish I could go visit Boston (or some other city in that area) around this time. I would love to just be able to experience a true fall, and visiting there at this time would allow me to enjoy the crisp weather before it gets freezing up there.

Well since Monday was the first official day of fall, Jason and I have begun a tradition that we hope to continue for many years to come. On Autumnal Equinox (fancy word for first day of fall!), we bake pumpkin bread. Jason's dad, Steve, used to make it all the time. He was an amazing cook and we miss him dearly. While the recipe calls for pumpkin and helps us get into the fall season with its delicious smells arising from the oven, I see it more as a way to remember my awesome father-in-law. I look forward to the days when Jason and I can cook this recipe (and his others too) with our children and tell them about their wonderful Grandfather. We can't wait to teach them about him and to let his legacy live on.
Welcome Fall.....
