First Signs of Fall

Do you know what today is?

It's officially The First Day of Fall!!

I don't know about you, but for us, it's been a long summer.

I'm ready for the cooler temps, warm drinks, and the smell of apples & cinnamon floating through the air.


I've still got a ways to go, but Autumn is starting to make an appearance around our home.

Take a peek:












I'm just getting started and still have lots to put out so beware there will be more Fall to come.

One other favorite thing about Autumn is all of the good food that comes with it.


I saw this on Darlene's blog and thought I'd give it a try.....Taco Soup.

It was delicious (although I did make a couple of minor changes to the recipe).


I highly recommend it if you're trying to mix up your dinner routine.


Yum.

So, tell me......Have you put out your Fall fufu yet?

Isn't that Taco Soup yummy!!! We loved it. I also put some in freezer bags so we will have a quick meal ready when needed.

Hope you have a great day!!!♥

I put all the fall "fufu" out today. I didn't even think about it being the first day of fall. We are celebrating fall tonight going to my son's football game. Crossing my fingers for no rain.
