Growing up in eastern Canada, Fall was always a magical time of year for me. With its vibrant red and orange maples to the yellow birch and all the hues in between.
I remember hiking through the woods, building forts and of course jumping in a huge pile of leaves. Fall has been one of my favorite seasons for as long as I can remember. I even got married in Fall beneath the multitude of golden colors.
With the cooler temperatures blowing through nothing sounds better to me than wrapping up in a warm fuzzy blanket with my best little snuggler, a nice hot cup of cocoa and a good book.
