Here's to a Happy & Healthy Fall

Summer has long since faded into the background. I no longer feel the need to jump out of bed and seize the day. I can say goodbye to my swimsuits and sunburns. Why you ask? Because FALL 2009 is HERE! While simultaneously sloughing off summer, I am whole heatedly welcoming fall into my life. I am giving myself permission to slow down, take time for one more cup of coffee, steal a moment more under the covers, read one more page in my book, grab one more snuggle from my kiddos, lounge in my pj's for just a moment longer, and steal my husband's covers for warmth because chilly fall air is wafting through the open windows. So, I raise my Spiced Pumpkin Latte and say, "Here's to a happy & healthy fall, slowing down a bit, and savoring the small moments in life" To properly welcome Fall 09 I made my apple cinnamon muffins this morning and realized I have never shared it with you.
If you make these muffins, be warned : your home will smell so delicious you may become delusional.

Yum Yum YUM. I need some of those muffins please. I love that it's Fall but I hate that here in Texas it's still in the 80's and 90's. We had a couple of 70 degree days last week, but they didn't stick. I feel like I'm still running around like a crazy person...and now that the grade school kids are back in school, the traffic is worse when I take my two to preschool twice per week. GRRRR. On the upside I am fully loving the pumpkin spice lattes...and hoping with all my might that we might see weather that resembles Fall sometime soon.
