Happy First Weekend of FALL!!






With the start of Fall just a few days away, I’m reminded of why this is my FAVORITE season of all.  I love the crisp feel outside when I walk out of the house in the morning and the smells that fill the air.  Every year when this wonderful season arrives, it makes me want to slow down a bit and enjoy what is my life.  I get this overwhelming urge to put cinnamon on everything and bake until my oven goes out!  Fall also makes me want to curl up on the couch with my family and watch a movie while sipping hot chocolate (sprinkled with cinnamon, of course!)  There is something wonderful about just being together.  You don’t necessarily have to be on an elaborate vacation to be having a great time and making memories.  So this is what I want you to do . . . go grab your family, make one of these hot chocolate recipes below courtesy of Lady and the Blog(the Mexican hot chocolate happens to be my favorite),and curl up and watch a movie together!  Your kiddos will love that this was your idea, after all who ever said no to a movie night??

Happy Fall,

Diane Hawkins
