Well it's been another great summer here in Louisiana, long days filled with boating, swimming and grilling. But what I love most about our move here is that we do get season changes and my favorite time of year is fall. I have never been a big Halloween person much to my kids dislike each year. We always handed out candy and the kids went trick-o-treating but my decorating focuses on harvest scenes instead of ghosts and witches. We have already had a few slight cool snaps here this year, just a tease though! Its a great time for the change of summer fare and sun tans to Jambalaya, cozy sweaters and of course SEC Football!!
My husband's famous Pastalaya!!
Oh and how I love going to the mailbox each month and discovering my new Southern Living magazine...its like a gift to me, from me each month. And my latest October issue did not disappoint. Inside it is filled with great Fall decorating ideas, seasonal recipes and total inspiration. But one article in particular totally amazed me, it was an introduction to the Dallas Arboretum for their annual Autumn at the Arboretum.
Not sure I will get there this year, but it is definitely on my "bucket" list!
