Fall is my favorite time of year. hands down. I love the foods, the colors the weather. I love that i can dig out my favorite sweaters and wear jeans without being hot. I love turning on the heater for the first time and smelling the fireplaces in t he neighborhood. Coastal California in the fall reminds me of Ireland. Foggy mornings, big cups of tea, blustery rain and the smell of wet wool! It makes me want to curl up by a peat fire, warm my woolen socks and enjoy a hot whiskey at day’s end.
