Where are you Fall??

I must confess, I have been reading many of your post with extreme envy. I am coveting your fall weather. The weather here is still balmy, humid, and gross with temps in the 90's. Even though we are right in the midst of football season, I just can't seem to get into the fall spirit. Surely it's just right around the corner, right?

In the meantime, I am seriously craving...

{A frothy cup of hot chocolate}



{A trip to the pumpkin patch}





{The opening of Florida farmer's markets. How bizarre is it that our farmer's market season is just now starting?}




{Pumpkin scones}




{Fresh autumn apples...which I can dip in caramel.}

{A trip to the corn maze...I especially love going at Halloween because the maze is usually haunted.}

My list could go on and on. Fortunately, I have some fun things coming up, so maybe it will start to feel a bit more like fall...even if it is still 95 degrees outside.

What are you craving this week?

cooler temperatures (like the ones in Shreveport right now!)

Clam Chowder in a bread bowl while sitting on the patio of Boudin in San Francisco (where the temps are cooler)

Hot Apple Cider

Steaming Pot of Gumbo

Natchitoches Meat Pie ;) (i have not had one in YEARS!)

Lighting my fireplace

Wearing big bulky sweaters

Opening my windows

The scent of crisp, autumn air.

Experiencing Fall like northerners do

Pumpkin scented candles

Pumpkin muffins

I could ramble on and on! LOL

You aren't alone sister. Still melting and complaining about it here in Tampa. Ah ha. And I'm craving caramel apples and can't find them in the grocery store yet. What the heck? It's October people!

I feel the same way, I live in South Texas where the current temp at 11am is 87.
I am craving wearing cute cardigans and boots!

I hope that it cools down for you soon! The pumpkin scone you posted looks delicious.

It finally started to cool off up here and I'm in the fall spirit. I'm really looking forward to a trip to our local orchard to go fruit picking and take a hayride. I also want to visit some haunted mazes/houses!
