Happy Hour

{It only took us 4 1/2 years of wandering Central Park to find the castle...}

I apologize in advance if the better part of this post looks like fall threw up all over it. Since I know snow is just on the horizon, I'm trying my best to hang onto every last drop of burnt orange and buttery yellow that I can. In fact, while there are still plenty of signs of fall in Central Park, snow was already on the ground when we ventured upstate last week for a little trip to the Culinary Institute of America. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited for snow. But I'm learning to savor things in the present so I don't have to look back at something that I missed in an effort to too quickly move onto the next thing. The changing seasons is as good a place as ever to practice being present. While everyone else is all like "I've got my tree up and my stocking hung and cookies baked for santa", I'm just over here trying to catch the last leaves falling from the trees....

Are you hanging onto fall like I am, or have you already embraced the holiday spirit?
