When you feel that first crisp breeze, you know that summer is gone and fall is in the air. Every season has its upside; however, autumn has a particular beauty to it. Lovers of the season revel in its unique ability to turn the world into one big canvas with nature’s paintbrush. From warm apple cider to camping trips, there are so many reasons to enjoy fall.
One of my favorite fall activities is taking a drive up a tree-lined street or going on a nature hike. To see the canopy of red, gold, and orange leaves is so enchanting.
Fall fashion is the best. Woolen scarves, puffy vests, long sleeve, and equestrian boots… There are so many options to layer up and stay warm during the autumn months. Plus, fall clothes look good on everyone.

Late November kicks off holiday time – when you find yourself gathered around the table more often with friends and family. In particular, Thanksgiving is special because you not only get to spend time with loved ones, but you also get to reflect on everything you have and show your gratitude for it all!
In a Dutch oven, saute the apple and onion in butter until tender. Add broth; bring to a boil. Stir in cooked squash; cook for 5 minutes. Add the evaporated milk, salt, pepper, nutmeg and cayenne pepper and heat through. Cool slightly. In a blender, process soup in batches until smooth. Return all to the pan; heat through (do not boil). Ladle into soup bowls and garnish with a dollop of sour cream!
