Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer. After today, our favorite lakeside beach will be closed till next year. No more building sand castles or refreshing dips in Candlewood Lake. In our little town, school is already in session. In a few weeks, the leaves will begin to change color and fall to the ground, lining the streets with breathtaking shades of fiery reds, brilliant yellows and glowing oranges. Although I’m sad to see summer slowly come to an end, I’m excited about the season ahead. With fall comes hot cider, warm apple pie and hearty stews. I can’t wait to curl up on the sofa with my boys, armed with a fleece throw and a mug of hot chocolate. Over the next month, as the temperature begins to cool, I’ll start to bring back some of my favorite fall recipes and try out some new ones. Goodbye, summer. Until we meet again.
