It's currently summer, but with all the rain it really doesn't feel like it. As a matter of fact, I mentioned to my husband earlier this week, it seems like fall. The leaves on the trees are starting to change colors and drop to the ground. With all the rain and the low temperatures, I believe the trees are confused; because we can't be this close to having cold temperatures and snow.
Thoughts of warm cookies, hot chocolate, pumpkins, apples, apple cider and so much more. This got me to thinking, what are my top things to do this upcoming fall season in Northern Virginia with my family. You know it's also a popular time for baking. I'm also sharing my family's recipe for these quick chocolate chip cookies.
6 Fun Date Night Ideas for Married Couples
Just because you are married, doesn't mean your life has be boring or you become that dreaded married couple!

For military families, it may be hard to send your children away to your parents, but ask the friends or neighbors you trust to watch your children over night.
No clue where to go and what to do on the pending date? Don’t you worry, for I’ve got a couple of fun date night ideas just for you!

Family Beverages for a Fabulous Fall
Why should you just restrict yourself to baking a mouthwatering pumpkin or sweet potato pie for your family this fall? Why not brew or mix a cup of something equally delicious to go with your slice of pie?
With the considerable cooler morning temperatures, this is the time I start looking for warm drinks. My usual go-to is coffee with flavored coffee creamer. My kids love the cooler weather as well because they can drink hot chocolate and the talk of school snow days are the topic of discussion.
There are so many heavenly drinks that you and your entire family can sip on as you enjoy this wonderful season. Check out the delicious recipes below, we are sure you will find something that suits your taste buds the best.
