#teamslaughter @Clwojick Another thing I love about Autumn are the leaves. They are particularly vibrant this year. Credit for these pictures goes to my mom, Lise Charbonneau.

#teamslaughter @Clwojick Another thing I love about Autumn is that you can start making hearty soups! I made this for supper and it was delish! I highly recommend this cookbook.

@LibrarianRyan #BBRC picture book letter F - I thought I‘d start working on this section with a few books perfect for this time of year. This was a cute addition to the Franklin series - although I couldn‘t help but notice Franklin is the only animal with a name. His friends are Rabbit, Fox, Bear etc. @Librarybelle Also, maybe this counts as some points for #teamslaughter @Clwojick ?

Librarybelle Definitely perfect for this time of year! 4d

#teamslaughter Memories of Halloween Past: this is my husband and I last year. I actually wasn‘t allowed to celebrate Halloween as a kid - I know, Right?? But I‘ll answer your questions as best I can @Clwojick : 1️⃣Fave treat - Full size chocolate bars! 2️⃣Least Fave - black licorice 3️⃣Fave tradition- Dressing up in couples costumes - have only done it a few years 4️⃣fave costume would be Shrek and Fiona!

Sweet and Sinful, just like the title suggests. A good second chance romance, with plenty of steam and an intriguing secondary plot that lifts this simple contemporary romance slightly into the realm of romantic suspense.
