It's Fall Ya'll
Right about this time of year, I would give my right arm for a nice, crisp fall day, a jacket, some leaves changing color, and warm fireplace. However (and this is a recurring theme on this blog), we live in the desert. No leaves, no jackets, no fireplaces, and certainly no fall days!
Our friends John and Lynze set out to change all of that. With candy corn and other trinkets literally FedExed from the States, they put together an old-fashioned fall party! No apple cider in the Arabian Gulf? No problem - apple juice, orange juice, lemon juice, cloves, cinnamon (and a little rum, of course!)
Sadly, the magic lasts just one night - when the candy corn runs out - and today it's back to 95 and sandy. Oh well, off to Jumeirah beach!
