2. Scent: Cinnamon! There’s something about the aroma of cinnamon that makes me feel warm and cozy.Gauge loves his ball

3. Activity: An afternoon at the park with the dogs and my man. I’m a fan of spending the afternoon in the park, bundled up in warm clothes playing fetch with the dogs. I know the dogs love it too, especially when they can run through the leaves and those darn muddy puddles.

4. Holiday: Thanksgiving. Amazing home cooked food with never ending variety of side dishes, and don’t even get me started on the desserts…along with the company of family and friends! What more do you need? 

5. Clothing: Cuddly (sometimes oversized) soft sweaters. I can never have enough! Candle

6. Living room: Candles. We unfortunately don’t have a fireplace in our home so candles are a must. I just love the ambience of a wood burning fireplace, however for now candles must do.

7. Food: I’m a devoted soup lover. I enjoy making homemade soup on a regular basis during the fall and winter months. Sometimes I’ll get a wild hair in July!

8. Time: Dusk. The sunsets are truly beautiful this time of year.

3. Popcorn and movies, snuggling. All of us!
4. Thanksgiving. Family, food and it's so low-key.

6. Hmm - magazines that I can read while Mr. Scout watches the History Channel.
7. Noodles/pasta. Can't get enough of it.

Hi Sarah - I don't know if you participate in blog parties, but I gave you a blog award. It's over on my blog. Stop on by and pick up the blog button image and play if you'd like. If not, then just know that I'm thinking of ya!

I'm so happy I stumbled across your blog! I love this game... okay, here are my answers:

1. All the fun seasonal beers that are readily available now, especially the Pumpkin Stouts (Cape Ann Brewing Company in Gloucester, MA has a great one).

2. Beef stew... yum

3. Walking through our orchard with my daughter, and Indian Summer walks with both kids and my husband.

4. Hmm, Thanksgiving and Halloween are tied, I think. I'll say Columbus Day!

5. A trench coat or my tall brown riding boots.

6. A cable-knit throw blanket and the TV remote.

7. Halloween popcorn balls and caramel apples, spicy Indian Chicken Tikka Masala, or a nice hearty soup/stew/

8. Early morning, before anyone else is up. The world seems so fresh, and I feel like I can accomplish anything (before I get distracted by kids and clients).
