We still have some days of sunshine, but the gray days are starting to be more frequent and I can tell the days are already starting to get shorter. When Emma wakes up between 6-7 its not light outside for another hour or so, which makes it hard for mama to wake up.
The grayness can be depressing, but I'm trying to embrace all things cozy and fall to enjoy it: slippers, tea, pumpkin/apple flavors, the fall leaves, sweaters, etc.
Last night we had friends over to watch football, I made chili and the above Fall Sangria. It was really amazing. I really recommend it. I mulled a portion of the wine with some mulling spices. If you don't have mulling spices, I'm sure you could just do a cinnamon stick and it would be equally impressive.
