As we welcome autumn in the South again, simple joys abound at every turn: pumpkins stacked high on porch steps, robust casseroles bubbling in the oven, fires snapping as dusk descends.
Our new Autumn 2017 issue includes everything from the brilliant foliage in the foothills to the first cool breezes on the coast, fall in our region is pure magic—and we share a touch of that magic with you. Come along with us as we visit a splendid mountain escape in Arkansas and travel to big-city Texas. Peek inside a renovated Alabama cottage sporting its seasonal best, then spruce up your own surroundings with easy decorating touches inspired by nature’s autumn paintbox. And our array of luscious desserts, flavorful soups and stews, harvest sides, and more are equally perfect for a cozy evening at home or a special-occasion gathering. Fall is its own best reason to celebrate, so join us in savoring every moment! Take a closer look at some of our favorite features from the Autumn 2017 issue on the next page.
