NOVEMBER…when nature’s colors get richer, the weather gets colder, and the days get shorter. We enjoy the coziness of home more…scented candles, hot cider, warm blankets, and pumpkin bread fresh from the oven. We look forward to Thanksgiving and gathering with family and friends. We savor this quieter time before the busy rush of December and pause to reflect on all we are thankful for—the people in our lives, the comforts we enjoy, the health we are blessed with, and so much more. The arrival of November not only brings us the beauty of the colorful outdoors, it also brings us special moments to enjoy inside…and time to remember all the wonderful things that warm our hearts throughout the year.
May November be a special month for you as you enjoy the autumn and Thanksgiving season!

Some of my favorite things about autumn are apples and apple cider–and those freshly-made donuts you can buy at some cider mills! But freshly-picked apples are always a treat, and these lovely rustic organic apples come from my friend Alisa’s farm…from a tree planted long ago by her Grandpa and enjoyed every year when autumn comes around.
Happy Autumn to you!
