Healthy Travel, Castles and Fall Beauty

Meaghan's Getaway Guide ~ September 17-21

Crisp autumn air, the aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon swirling from the kitchen, trees showing off their true beauty...this is autumn. For me, fall's the season for baking. I start planning what pies I'll make for thanksgiving, a task that starts at my favorite farmers market, gathering all the ingredients for my famous apple & pumpkin pies.
