October is here! Fall reminds me of growing up in New England. I miss the leaves changing colors, the cooler (not cold) temperatures, the smell of wood fires burning in the air, high school football games, hot chocolate, warm apple pie with a dollop of vanilla ice cream melting on top, making scarecrows with old clothes and stuffing them with hay, baking bread and all sorts of treats, and carving pumpkins. One of my favorite snacks are homemade lightly salted roasted pumpkin seeds.

This time of year always makes me homesick. So hubby and I get a couple of pumpkins and decorate for the many trick-or-treaters in our neighbor. I love seeing the costumes the kids come up with every year!

Do you have a favorite fall activity or ritual you’d love to share?
