October Fall Festivals

The day is starting out gorgeous with cool weather and my anticipation for fall festivities this weekend. Living in central Texas is great because I'm near large cities and small cozy towns. Every weekend there are festivals and fairs. I also like going to farmers markets and giving my business to local growers. There are also a lot of Wine & Music festivals all over the country. Autumn is my favorite season and I can't wait to enjoy the outdoor festivities.
One of my favorite pictures of my kids taken a several years ago.
Just down the road from my house is Gruene, Texas. Gruene a step back in history with vintage stores for shopping, eating, dancing, and spending the night. Gruene is on the National Register of Historic Places. If you're in the area be sure to go to to the Gruene Music and Wine Festival that starts October 7.
One day I would love to visit the New York City Wine & Food Festival. It would be amazing to see the celebrity chefs. Watching them on television is okay but I can only imagine their charisma in person. I'm drawn by the charm of Paula Deen, the creativity of Bobby Flay, and the energy of Guy Fierie. I equally like cooks and bakers, especially Duff Goldman from Ace of Cakes.
