Fall is definitely one of my favorite seasons. I can’t seem to decide if I like fall or spring better though. They seem pretty equal to me but fall brings my favorite flavor and scent, pumpkin!
I love pretty much all things pumpkin; baked goods, decorations, candles, etc. In preparation for fall, I’ve saved a lot of pumpkin recipes over the past few months. But I thought it was pretty selfish of me just to keep them all to myself.
