Spring & Summer Flashback

We have officially entered my favorite season of all time…FALL….! I just love everything about this time of year, from the clothes, weather, food…just everything. If I could live in the fall season all year around, I would be absolutely happy. Personally speaking I do not like extreme hot or cold weather…that’s what makes fall perfect…

Except for today…we are welcoming fall weather with a high of 85 degrees and Sophia is sick, so with that in mind….it does not feel like fall, but I am hopeful in the coming weeks that the weather will be cooler.

Sophia woke up with a fever with no indication of the night before that she would be sick. I have been keeping her hydrated, she has no desire to eat anything and I am monitoring her fever…just hoping this Motrin kicks in soon..poor kid.

Anyways, I have decided to do a Spring and Summer roundup of unseen photos and links to older blog posts…

So let’s dig in…..

Candy Corn Inspired Drinks!

I love candy corn..wait let me rephrase that. I love the way candy corn looks, but I really dislike the way it tastes. I love the way it looks in a candy dish..maybe even used as a decoration on a cake.

They’re adorable, but I personally don’t eat them.

I thought it would be really fun to do a Candy Corn inspired drink. Non-alcoholic of course, but I am pretty sure we could make it a little more fun! But we are making it kid friendly this time!

Hot Apple Cider

Have you gone to any apple festivals yet? My mom and I went to one about two weeks ago with Sophia. It was so much fun! At the festival they had a barn filled with these huge, deep crates filled with Apples.

With Sophia being an apple lover, we went home with a bunch of apples! Too many actually, but then I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to make homemade apple cider.

My friend Emily shared this recipe with me several years ago, and every since then I always  make it for the house around fall time.
