Former Fall Fashions, Food

Jackie Jacqueline Kennedy webFALL
What does “fall” mean to you? We know, at this age, that word has medical connotations. But we mean “fall” as in “autumn,” the only season with two names. For homeowners, it can mean raking leaves.

If Only Our Porch Could TALK!

Porch Picture webOne of the changes my family experiences in the fall is that we don’t hang out on the porch as much. Once in a while, when there is a warm winter day, we bundle up and head out to one of our favorite places.
