smell the crisp air and evening bonfires....

i love fall.... today is already almost half way through my favorite month. there is a change in the air. the transition between summer and fall seems full of possibility. the changing angle of the sun's passage across the sky sheds a new light on everything. a promise of hope...
i'm here now.

car lights illuminate the street before i've figured out what to have for dinner.  it's dark so early.   i pull on a hooded sweatshirt to ward off chills, i take a sip of pumpkin spice and remind myself: i believe in the change of seasons, and the changes in life.

for my friends who love a spicy life.  a perfect simple chili recipe for fall.
