I couldn't ask for a better beginning to fall. With breezy cool temperatures, I've wasted no time getting into the spirit of my favorite season. Last night I brought home a few Cinderella pumpkins for the front porch and tucked in some of our autumn colored hydrangeas and cut boxwood - similar to how I decorated our urns last fall. I also brought home all of the ingredients for my favorite cider recipe that was given to me by my Aunt BJ. Each holiday when we arrived at her house, she always had a large pot of this simmering on the stove. It made the house smell heavenly and it's just as delicious. This recipe is said to have originated in 1619 in Berkley, Virginia. Enjoy!
