It’s September and the season to transition to fall comforts… Cozying up in big sweaters and comfy throws. Enjoying the aromas of warming stews, chili, and spicy harvest candles. Kicking back to watch a Husker game while enjoying your favorite drink. 

For you summertime Moscow Mule lovers, it’s time to switch over to a hot toddy while gathering ’round the fire pit. If you don’t already have a few copper mugs, we have the perfect recommendation. This issue’s Makers, Michael Stepp and Matt Dennis, create high-end, handcrafted copper mugs under the name Handlebend at their facility in small-town O’Neill, Nebraska. They are gifts that impress! (

We also spotlight a rustic barn kit home built by Marshall Builders in Ponca Hills that will have you aching to get away to your own retreat in the woods, as well as several great home renovations to check out. Finally, be sure to read our money-saving Harvest piece with tips for overwintering your outdoor plants.

For most, autumn in the Midwest is a treat with beautiful fall foliage that gives New England a run for its money. And with temps in the mid 60s to low 70s, it’s pretty hard to beat for sleeping weather, too. Enjoy the season!

On a personal note, my Father turns 85 on Sept. 6.  God blessed me when he gave me you, Dad. I’m honored to be your daughter. 

Happy Birthday!
