 Fall is my favorite time of year.
I love watching the leaves turn from green to beautiful shades of yellows, oranges, and reds.
There are some great trees Downtown.
Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the beauty!

Things have been crazy around my house lately. 
Between lots of overnight guests and painting projects, the only reason I've been Downtown is to grab Fratelli's to go!
Yummy, fresh, hot pizza is the perfect dinner on nights where the cook is overwhelmed!
What are your favorite pizza toppings?

Weekend Happenings

There's lots of stuff going on Downtown tomorrow morning.
First up is the One Heart for Justice event.  Activities begin at 8am in Twin Springs Park.  (Click here for more info.)  One of the activities taking place is Siloam Springs very first half-marathon!  I've got a couple of friends who will be running, so I'm planning on heading out to cheer them on.

Farmer's Market will be in full swing in City Park from 8am-1pm.  I'm eager to pick up some fall veggies to roast and put in soups!

Enjoy this fall-ish day!

The link to the article can be found here.
And the link to Siloam Springs Farmer's Market's facebook wall can be found here.

The market is open today and rumor has it they've got pumpkins and apples and mums!
