Fall is my favorite time of year.  In Houston, fall means dipping below 81 but I will take anything over heat and humidity.  I've always loved Halloween but now that it has become SO commercialized and starts in August, people forget to appreciate the simple pleasures of the season.  How great are these barn parties?!?  Imagine a crisp fall night, everyone in comfortable boots and jeans, a menu filled with savory foods, rich red wine and dancing under the stars to a live band.  Yep, I'm ready for it!  Maybe I should turn my air conditioning down to 60 and rent the movie, "Footloose"...okay, that's not a good idea but you get the gist.  Now, who wants to loan me a barn and lots of twinkle lights?
