It seems that while I was out, fall crept in. In fact, I’m slightly suspicious that it may have followed me home. Hot humid days have given way to crisp fall mornings and the bluest of skies… and folks, that is just fine with me.
The only odd thing about fall in Frederick is that our county fair, which to me (have I mentioned I was once a fair and rodeo queen? that might be a story for another day) will always be synonymous with the hot summer sun, doesn’t take place until now.
But the more I think about it… caramel apples, apple dumplings, fried things on sticks… all of those things are totally appropriate for fall. And the fair is always fun, no matter when you go. Which if you’re us is multiple times (what? you don’t spend the whole week there?).
I hope you’re enjoying the crisp fall air and feeling the spirit as much as I am… it’s just about time to start firing up the apple cider and pulling out the pumpkins! Not to mention the fact that it’s just about time for my wedding (!!).
Here are a few things I’m loving this week…
The audience — who booed.
Five fresh (and yummy looking) fall salads.
Chelsea and Tec’s anniversary film.
Plums in wine and honey.
Jose, with a hasselblad, in Malaysia.
One last dose of summer.
