Loving Fall & Early Christmas Planning

Fall is my favorite season and it feels like it goes by faster and faster each year. As I write this post, there is sleet falling outside my window here in NJ. Today I thought I would share a few odds and ends before the season completely passes us by.

Leaf Peeping in Vermont & the Adirondacks

This fall has been an unusual one for our family because we were able to spend a good chunk of time in the mountains while Billy was out of work recovering from surgery. Because of the way the Jewish holidays and Columbus Day fell, the kids were also off of school a few days, giving us a couple of nice long weekends. Usually we cross our fingers and hope for some decent foliage on the weekend we go upstate in the fall. This year, we were actually able to see the peak foliage come and go. And, let me tell you, it comes and goes in a matter of a few days. Which I guess is what makes it so special. Come along on one of our fall rides with us!

We have been enjoying some cooler temperatures recently that actually make it feel like fall. It is always a fun day when we hop in the car, head to the store and fill the trunk with hay bales, mums and corn stalks.
