The leaves change into brilliant hues, the morning air so crisp, the beautiful sunrise awakening the earth, the stream of steam from my hot spiced tea joining the atmosphere. This is the time of year for comfy clothes, cozy blankets, good books, hot drinks, warm nourishing soups, pumpkins, vibrant shades of oranges, reds, yellows, and gold.
Pumpkin soup, pumpkin pound cake with hot buttery homemade caramel sauce, pumpkin spiced latte, pumpkin cheesecake roll, pumpkin pie, pumpkin waffles drizzled with warm maple syrup….. all a wonderful invitation to sit quietly, cozy in your favorite spot surrounded by fluffy pillows, soft blankets, fuzzy pajama pants, a good book, and soft music.
Maybe listening to the leaves as they playfully chase each other along the road. The laughter of children twirling in the wind. The sparkle of a smile from a loved one. Peace in your mind, joy in your heart.
Take a moment to enjoy your comfy, cozy spot, surrounded by the colorful changing season, a bowl of nourishing butternut squash soup at hand.
