Seasonal Favorites

IMG_0931Lately, I find myself brewing up pots of soup on these chilly evenings here in the mid-Atlantic and as much as I enjoy the crisp, cold air, the thought of snuggling up indoors is my idea of true comfort. But, when outdoors it is wondrous seeing colorful leaves falling to the ground, markets filled with pumpkins and the occasional sunrise that makes this time of year so spectacular {see last post Sunday Traditions}!

I cannot wait to make my delicious marinara sauce this weekend!!

Harvest stylishly,
