Fall in love

Fall in love (pun intended)

You may meet people who fell in love during any and every season, people are getting married every day, but the second most common time to be married is October. The epitome of autumn is October. October is when the weather really becomes crisp, when you want a scarf as warmth and not just a fashion statement. Bundling up with a book a cup of hot tea is a good day, any day. October or Autumn in general is when you usually do not have any choice but to put on a jacket and a pair of boots.

Some people though trade in those warm aspects of their wardrobe for a day and wear a white gown that took hours to pick out, a black suit and bow tie which probably took about 30 minutes to pick out in all seriousness. The colors of fall for weddings are perfect. Orange, yellows, reds. Having leaves falling down and piles of leaves in the back ground of your wedding pictures. I personally am not engaged to be married or even dating anyone, I mean this is a college blog, I am in college still, but when the time comes I hope to get married during this time of year, end of September beginning of October. Perfect time in my eyes.

I am in school to become an Event Planner so I cannot wait to plan these types of weddings also, not just plan mine. With all of the gorgeous colors and scenery’s.

Many people talk about this time of year, enjoy this time of year. Some even post them on other blogs. Go check out this blog to see exactly what an autumn/fall wedding can look like. Also to learn about why fall/October is the second biggest time to get married or to fall in love click here. Maybe you will think about this when you are planning your wedding whether it is next month, next year or 5 years down the road, which is probably where I will be.

Tell me about your wedding, or if you are like me then your ideas for a wedding. When would you like to be married or when were you married?

Who doesn’t love Pie? Apple, peach, blueberry, custard, pecan, pumpkin, they all sound so good. A lot of people bake pies around this time of the year, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and it is starting to get nippy out. A lot of blog posts are dedicated to this some subject of pies. And times like these I am just like everyone else.

I have found two blog posts that are dedicated to the thing that I cannot wait to eat this season, pies. Click here for one that is strictly all about apple pies and here for apple cranberry ginger pie. Both sound amazing.

I think my favorite pie around this season is my mom’s apple crumb pie. It is filled with crunch, soft, sweet Macintosh apples and a crumb top that when you take it out of the oven it is crispy and crunchy and yummy.

These blogs both have apple in the pies that they discuss. One is strictly apple while the other has cranberry and ginger mixed in, doesn’t that sound delicious? The straight apple pie is a mini pie recipe. They are simple and elegant and I wish I could eat them right off the screen they look so good. There are only 9 recipes for this recipe, how easy could that be? They cook for about 30-40 minutes then you can eat the delicious mini apple pies right up.

The other post has a pie that I would have never thought mixing the ingredients. Apple, cranberry, ginger. It seems like a very fall pie to me, I mean apples AND cranberry’s, if that doesn’t scream fall I do not know what does. This recipe had 14 ingredients which is more than the other, but I bet it is quite worth it. These pies also only have to bake for 20-30 minutes which means the faster you can eat them!

The amount of pies I make a year or at least the time that I am home from college is a little insane. I bake in general but there is just something about a pie. I especially love the nights my mom makes spaghetti and a home-made sauce and then a warm pie for dessert. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Go check out the full recipes of those pies and tell me what you thought about them.

Everyone has a favorite pie, what is yours?
