The Importance of Being Reese

The Best Places to See and Experience Fall On The Blue Ridge Parkway


A/N: This post is sponsored by Toyota & The Biltmore Estate, however, all thoughts and opinions about how amazing this vehicle and restaurant are, belong solely to me. 

 A few weeks ago we headed to the gorgeous Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina to catch the changing of the leaves. If you live in or around North Carolina, you know the Parkway is a hot spot during the fall months. This is because the Blue Ridge Parkway boasts some of the most scenic views and autumn colors in the South during the Fall and Spring months.

Since we're in such close proximity, we typically visit Asheville at least twice a year, and it never fails to disappoint. In that time, we've learned that there are some extraordinary places to take in the scenery. So if you're planning on heading that way anytime soon, here are some tips to help get you there safely, provide you with some gorgeous views and make sure your visit to The Blue Ridge Parkway is everything you expect, and more!

Pumpkin Spice Crescents

Add a bit of Pumpkin Spice to your meal with these deliciously easy-to-make Pumpkin Spiced Crescents. 

We're officially entered into the season of Pumpkin Spiced Everything! Ironically enough, as coffee obsessed as I am, I am not a fan of Pumpkin Spiced Lattes as Starbucks. But these Pumpkin Spiced Crescent Rolls, well that's another story...

If I could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner without severe repercussions on my waist-line, not to mention sugar levels, I would be tempted. As it is, I make these a few times a month during the cooler months. They remind me of all the things I love about Fall. Pumpkin, vanilla and warm desserts fresh from the oven.

It doesn't get much better than this.

Finally, we've arrived at the final section of my 2017 Holiday Gift Guide. I've done several gift guides in the past, and the kids section is always my favorite section. As an 80's baby, our toys weren't quite as 'next level' as this generations, and I can't help but be in awe of at the tech savvy and educational options for kids toys are out there. It was actually hard not to go off the rails and just list all the things, but here are some of my favorite picks for the kiddos this holiday season!
