Cinnamon Apple Spice Sipper

One of the things I do miss about not living in the Midwest anymore is the changing of the seasons. My favorite time of year is the Fall with its changing leaves, the smell of bonfires, sweater weather, and apple picking at local orchards. I loved going into the orchards with my family to pick the fruit off the trees, knowing that they would end up in one of my mom’s famous apple pies. I know there are orchards here in California, however they aren’t close by like they were in Cleveland and Detroit. Don’t get me wrong. I have no intentions of ever moving back to the place where the air hurt my face in the winter and the humidity was beyond oppressive. I’m sure we will take our Bronco out to the Redwood forest or somewhere like that to enjoy the changing of the seasons. It just won’t be the same. Cheers! - Robin Seton Karides
