I found this lovely fall photo on pinterest and thought it the perfect photo to announce that fall is JUST around the corner! We had some lovely cool weather yesterday and today here in the heartland, and the air conditioning is OFF and the windows are OPEN! Definitely my favorite time of year. And soon we will have crisp mornings and evenings and the crockpot will have something yummy simmering just waiting for us to arrive home to enjoy! Hope you all are having a fabulous holiday weekend! We had 30+ relatives arrive at our home yesterday with potluck dishes in hand. Hubby made his famous baked beans, and we had a large honey ham and red velvet cake as our contributions. But oh my goodness there was a bounty of yumminess to be had! Deviled eggs, hamburger cheese dip, fresh salsa and chips, two different potato salads, coleslaw, hot milk sponge cake with broiled coconut icing (one of my personal favorites!), and so much more! My immediate family is coming over today for a nice lunch of leftovers, as there is a plethera (love using that word) of goodies to be enjoyed!
