Those who know me won't be surprised that one of my go-to items for a "hit" of autumn is an edible -- well, drinkable -- one. For years now, I've been addicted (potential 12-step-group-addicted) to Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Lattes (or, as I refer to them, "fall in a cup").
This fall-inspired playlist is filled with chill indie songs and acoustic tunes to help you unwind. Hopefully you can take some time to curl up in your favorite sweater and savor all autumn has to offer.
Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably noticed pumpkin products are popping up everywhere. One thing is for sure: I'm loving the trend! Act fast -- pumpkin is only in season from September through November, so start stocking your pantry now.
When you're throwing up your pumpkin pie vodka and all you have left in your pantry to refuel is Pumpkin Jones Soda and Pumpkin Pringles, we hope you think twice next time you fuel the insatiable pumpkin-flavored market.
Whether in a tiny kitchen or an endless field of fruiting trees, you can still experience the familiar chords of every season strike through rituals with seasonal produce. You don't get the full experience of this from the largely hands-off ritual of dining out.
Let's pack up our trail mix and slip on our waders for a long day's journey behind short-term bottom lines with the hope of discovering some wild thing on the loose, here in this season when almost nothing ever happens by accident.
Relax and calm your anxieties. Stop pushing for things to happen. Stop worrying that things won't happen. Detach from the outcome you so vehemently hold on to. What will be, will be. Everything has its time and everything has its course.
Up here at altitude you can not only see the late autumn, you can feel it, too. It wasn't at all like Lake Tahoe, where summer still seemed to be raging as we drove the winding road from our mountain chalet.
