Fashion, Food, Foliage & Football – Some of the reasons I love fall!!


Fashion week NYC – the city is buzzing with fashionista’s, shows, creative pop-up shops, photographers and designers.

September issue of Vogue – when the “bible” of fashion arrives I make a plan to spend a few hours enjoying the editorial and photography.  I usually sit on my comfy couch with a nice glass of wine, snuggly blanket and roaring fire.

Boots, sweaters and coats – I love wearing a cozy sweater, cool boots layered with a great jacket or coat to round out the outfit.

Window shopping on 5th Avenue – Retailers create beautifully art directed window displays throughout the year, but the fall through Christmas windows are my favorite!!


Soup – Preparing hearty soups that warm the heart and soul and leave my home filled with it’s savory aroma.

Pumpkins –

  • I enjoy eating pumpkin soup and pumpkin pancakes
  • Carving my Halloween pumpkin
  • Using small pumpkins for tablescapes

Hosting small intimate parties – I enjoy opening up my home to friends and family for dinners, brunches and ladies luncheons.  Hosting parties at one’s home is a beautiful way of sharing your creativity, conversation and culinary skills.

Going to the farmers market – I am a fan of supporting my local farmers! Fall is such a nice time of year to enjoy the harvest!


Enjoying the outdoors – I love hiking with friends followed by a picnic lunch.  The splendid colors of the season make for a beautiful outdoor setting.


  • Buffalo Bills – my hometown team
  • Sunday Funday with friends
  • Cheering and yelling at the television
  • Tailgating parties

These are some of my favorite things!!

Enjoy the fall!!
