Fall and fondue-





It's finally looking more like autumn around our place...the leaves have started to fall and I even heard their crunch and caught that unmistakeable 'scent' of fall as the leaves crushed beneath my feet. I love this time of year. I don't necessarily go all out with decorations and elaborate costumes for my kids, but I love the sounds and smells and flavors and colors all around. For sure.
Last night Chip and I enjoyed dinner out with our friends; we stuffed ourselves with great food at a wonderful fondue restaurant. Start to finish- from the melted cheeses and fruits and breads to the lobster and steak and veggies, to the fruits, cakes, marshamallows and chocoloate, it was a meal that would be hard to top.
I have had a few busy weeks and even if I hadn't earned this night out with my hubby and friends, it would have been wonderful just the same. But it seemed all the more sweet as a result of the crazy, full days we've been living.
Happy week of Halloween. Ours is off to a great start...chocolate and all. =)
