Living among farms and orchards in the northeast has given me an appreciation for the seasonal traditions passed down for centuries in these parts. Sharing them with my family has made them part of our own story together. After all, my most treasured childhood memories are not usually isolated events, but the things I looked forward to each year: the traditions that were unique to my family. Recreating them with my children and making new ones together is one of parenting's greatest gifts. I've also noticed that I can't help but share them with you, too! Each year, my excitement for the beauty at my feet spreads into the rituals of what is posted for you. Here's to apples and pumpkins! And here's to my grandma's apple cake, which is in the oven right now...
Hope your weekend was grand!
