Fall favorite things…

After living in Hawaii where the only season is summer, I do not take my favorite time of the year, FALL, for granted.  So thankful we can enjoy autumn in Germany.

Here is a tribute to some of my very favorite fall things….

golden foliage…. (not sure why Germans think they need to head to the US for colorful leaves.. it is beautiful here!)

playing in the leaves…

pumpkin soup… the curried coconut milk version with pumpkin seed bread…

My wedding anniversary.. October 1st… celebrated with Ralph borrowing a convertible Mercedes and taking me on a tour of castles and the fall countryside…

and last but not least, pumpkin pie flavored coffee… something you cannot get here, sent to me in a package from America with love by my dear friend Lisa. aahhhh… the smell of fall!

The only thing missing is pumpkin pie… I have no oven and Germany does not know of this treat and it can’t be easily shipped so I will have to wait until South Africa for this taste of fall.

Hope you are enjoying fall in your corner of the world. Even if it is Hawaii… =)
