Keep your pumpkin spice—pass me the apple cider everything!

Boots. Blanket scarves. Pumpkin spice lattes. These are sure signs of fall—as are the grey skies, crisp air, and beautiful golden leaves. For me, fall is all about the smells. The dry, dusty harvest air. Hearty soups in the crock pot. Baked goods in the oven. And while I enjoy pumpkin spice to a degree, there's nothing that quite puts in me in the mood for autumn like the smell of apple cider. Keep your pumpkin spice. Give me apple cider everything!

It's Fall, Y'all! | Autumn Haul from Gordmans

So I just got back from a lovely friend's wedding in Georgia. The bf and I made a road-trip of it—stopping half-way in for an overnight stay in Kentucky on the way there, then making the whole fourteen hour drive (we stopped several times, including for an hour long supper in Tennessee) in one shot on the way back. So excuse me while I hang on to saying "y'all" just a while longer. It's fall, y'all!
