Happy Harvest!

I don't know about you, but autumn is my favorite time of the year.  It marks the beginning of the holiday season for me.  I'm constantly dreaming up new stories set in rural Nebraska.  Not only do we have beautiful weather this time of year, but there are plenty of pumpkin farms to visit with your children. Or in my case, grandchildren!  This picture was taken at a roadside pumpkin stand in south central Nebraska along Hwy 6.  I couldn't resist sharing it with you.  Happy Harvest!  May your holidays be filled with fond memories and pumpkin spice lattes!
