My pumpkin spice candles have been burning nonstop the last few weeks.
I busted out my fall boots and have opened the windows to let the crisp air in.
There’s nothing better than snuggling under a massive pile of blankets and sleeping with the windows open.
I wake up to a feeling that I can only describe as Fall.
A feeling of nostalgia that brings back memories of OU football games, leaves twirling copper, mustard, and crimson, and chilly nights eating comfort food.
I cherish the memories of Autumn’s past.
But more than anything I look forward to the memories waiting to be made with Jackson as temperatures continue to drop and the last leaves fall.
Like baking Apple Oatmeal Cookies on a Sunday morning.
An easy recipe that you might enjoy, too.
