There is just something about the Fall that makes me want to head into hibernation mode with Mister McBlanky and a good book. Something about the cooler weather just makes me want to laze around more often than not.
Life may not allow me to cater to my desire to just chill out, but when the opportunity presents itself I certainly make the most of it.
With the holiday season quickly approaching make sure you take the time to stop, kick your feet up and relax. Whether it be with your favourite book, a cup of tea or this delectable Pumpkin Pie Martini. Make sure amid the holiday craziness that you put the most important person in your life first – YOU!
