Happy First Day of Fall

Can love really travel back in time and heal a broken heart? Was it our joined hands that finally lifted Maria's curse? I'd like to think so. But there are some things I know for certain: always throw spilt salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for luck, and fall in love whenever you can

Quote from the movie Practical Magic which is so wonderful to watch this time of year or anytime at all.

Happy First Day of Fall..................

I love fall shoes...............

This is the recipe in the magazine I didn't bother letting the melted chocolate cool it still worked and also you don't have to put the crumbs all the way up the sides only partially like an inch
