1. Pumpkin roll is a thing elsewhere?! I seriously thought my aunt had created the recipe until I saw the cookbook she got it from, but I’ve never seen it outside of my family.

    It. Is. The. Best.

    I have a recipe for the pumpkin roll… it is DIVINE! I will share, if I can remember to get it out and type it in after I get home today. Hope your vacay is lovely!

      I would LOVE to see that recipe! I really do want to make one, hopefully I’ll actually do it this year!

  3. Love the cute photo of you as a kid, Kate! And I’m in complete agreement over anything pumpkin with cream cheese. 100% fall.

      haha thanks Lauren! I just found it on my computer! It’s fun to find little files that you have hidden away on your hard drive sometimes :)

    a pumpkin roll…yum! happy fall!

  5. Pumpkin rolls are delicious! I tasted one for the first time last year, but I’ve never made one either. Maybe this coming week…

    Yay, vests! And I’ve never been on the Blue Ridge Parkway – we always take 77 to 74 when we drive to Raleigh – but it’s on my list too. Maybe this winter!

  6. Love this! Kate is such a sweetheart :) I too live right near the Blue Ridge Parkway! That’s actually where Thomas proposed two years ago this October. We’re planning on revisiting our spot to celebrate our anniversary! Thanks for sharing :) xoxo! e

  7. My Mom’s birthday is October 4th!

  8. I love Fall!!! I have to try vests… I’ve always have doubts but I guess it’s time to try them on
