Hi all! 

The end of August is approaching very quickly which only means one thing-the beginning of fall! I feel like it was just yesterday that our "beginning of the season" post was being sent out! But no worries,

our stores will still be open and full of life until October 29th, the same day the Grand Hotel closes for the winter. We are looking forward to meeting more of you in person before then! 

**Also, I want to note that our Little Luxuries online store will remain active all winter. Instead of bringing your gifts home with you, we will have them shipped right to your doorstep!**

I hope you and your family can soon feel the summer craziness begin to slow down as autumn approaches. I know my family can! Although, this fall feels a little bit different because we have a new family member to prepare for [Baby Doud's due date is mid-November]. We are getting so excited to meet our newest little angel!  

It does sadden our hearts to watch the summer season come to a close, we LOVE when autumn makes its first appearance on the island. The cooler weather, the beautiful change of colors in nature, a stronger sense of community among the island residents, and pumpkin added to everything!!

[See some of my favorite fall recipes below-Click the link to check them out]

Pumpkin and Sage Stuffed Shells

Pumpkin Pancakes 

The pumpkin stuffed shells are so easy to make and have such a delicious flavor! And my boys absolutely love the pumpkin pancakes-they add a healthy twist to breakfast which I love as a mother. I hope you and your family can enjoy them too! 

Happy cooking! 

 

Nicole, 

xoxo
