Le sigh. Following the brutal winter of 2011 I definitely discovered that I am a girl of summer. It was a good one, with trips to NJ, Cape Cod, and lots and lots of boating on Boston Harbor. I don’t quite get why people are excited for chilly air or to wear sweaters again; we’ll be wearing them for the next eight months. I’m still sick of my winter coat from last year.
But, as life goes, I don’t have control over the change of seasons, so I thought I would bid summer farewell with this very silly video, with yours truly commentating.
And now I can welcome fall. I do love fall, I just loathe what comes after. For now, I look forward to my first pumpkin beer (I held off this long!), all sorts of food and drink made with pumpkin, cinnamon, and maple flavors, apple picking, cool nights after warm days (not cold nights, mind you), the smell of woodburning stoves, long hot bubble baths with a glass of red wine, wearing my new boots,and of course holidays.
Fall is looking busy already starting with the Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival, dinner with friends at The Brahmin, a potluck dinner, a Boston Blogger Bash at M.J. O’Connor’s, a dinner party with Ted Allen (!!!!), Boston Brunchers birthday brunch, and lots more.
Trips to Sonoma, Ireland, and hopefully Italy round out the season in November. It looks like there is definitely a lot to look forward to. Happy first day of fall and happy weekend, everyone!
What are your favorite things about fall, and what are you most looking forward to in the coming months?
