Everyone enjoys the fun times of summer, spring has plenty of fans, and winter enthusiasts love skiing and holiday celebrations. Yet, there’s something about fall that makes it extra special.
Maybe it’s the cooler evenings, football games, pumpkin-spice everything or the crunch of leaves beneath your feet. But it’s easy to love the respite between the warmest and coldest months.
Here are a few of our favorite tips for enjoying this season to its fullest:
The excuse to have a fire is one of the best things about the end of summer. Whether it’s an old-fashioned campfire or a modern fire pit, it’s a calming activity that brings people together to relax. Once gathered, there’s always a need for good snacks. We love traditional smores, but if you have a fire pit, or just don’t want to make a mess, try making your own no-mess version with adeep dish smores dip. Check out this recipe,shown in the opening photo, and try it out at your next outdoor gathering.
When the weather eventually sends you indoors, get cozy with seating that’s stylish and comfortable. Add a favorite chenille throw, a cup of cocoa, and light a fire!
More Marshmallows, Please
No matter what your favorite time of year, making time for yourself is always in season. This fall, schedule a little rest and relaxation for yourself and enjoy the restorative benefits of some much-needed downtime.

Casual, comfortable style takes many forms.
There are blue jeans and sweatshirts, there are jeans and a shirt, and then there’s what some call business or ‘dress casual.’ It’s a more refined look, often with layering and details, such as slacks with a button-down shirt and a jacket or vest…set off by just the right accessory.
That ‘dress casual’ look is the vibe for BarcaLounger’snew introductions set for the April High Point Furniture Market.
The looks are refined modern, or traditional with a twist. For instance, the new Radcliffe reclinerand the Ryder reclinerare casual, yet dressed up with rich wood trim and clean lines.
