This week my itinerary includes Salt Lake City, Utah and then Denver, Colorado. First I’m headed to Salt Lake City for a blogging retreat at Deer Creek Resort. After that, Tony will meet me in SLC and we’ll head to Moab and Denver to see my Mom. I haven’t seen her since June so I’m beyond excited to squeeze her tight and tell her that I love her oh so much!
And speaking of my mom, there’s one thing that comes to mind when we spend time together: Pumpkin! My mom taught me how to bake my first pumpkin pie from scratch (even the crust!) when I was 9 years. Ever since then I’ve been in a full blown love affair with pumpkin; the outstanding orange color and sweet-spiced flavors scream everything cozy and wonderful to me.
