saying farewell to summer is bittersweet. While I will certainly miss the hot weather and laid back atmosphere, I look forward to crisp, cool fall days and a full calendar. There's always a sense of excitement in the air when we return from our late summer vacation. Neighborhoods that were quiet a month ago are now filled with children's voices as families prepare for the busy school year ahead. The hustle-bustle is invigorating, and while the increase in traffic is nothing to applaud, the opportunity to reunite with friends at business events and neighborhood get-togethers certainly is. The fall season is short but glorious. If you're looking for new ways to embrace and enjoy this fall, be sure to read our "Ten Tips for Welcoming Fall" at the beginning of this issue. I'm confident our tips will inspire you to try something new, whether it be a family outing or a recipe for a new favorite comfort food. In our Forum department, Laurel Lyle suggests a great way to feel invigorated this fall: volunteer. She high- lights a number of ways to give back to the community this fall and all year long. When I first read our "Halloween Season" feature story, I thought about my own childhood and fondly remembered some of my favorite costumes and trick-or-treat experiences. Today, Halloween has taken on a life of its own with superstores dedicated to the day open year 'round and parents and children celebrating in imaginative and unique ways. You'll meet some of our neighbors in the article who love Halloween and "scaring" us throughout the month of October. I also hope you like our cover photo as much as I do. From darling, sweet Dorothy to the wicked "Wellesley Witch," Halloween brings out the child in all of us. Another reason I welcome fall is because the cooler weather gets me back into the kitchen from a sum- mer hiatus. I enjoy learning new ways to prepare healthy meals, and I know that many of you follow vege- tarian or vegan diets. Even if you're an occasional vegetarian, I know you'll love the recipes in our Food and Wine department and will find it helpful to discover the multitude of resources in our area dedicated to healthy eating and living. I hope you enjoy this issue and find it useful as you pursue what you love to do best this fall. 14 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | f a l l 2 0 1 4 publisher's letter B E T H F U R M A N beth@wellesleywestonmagazine.com C A R O L Y N R O S S WellesleyWeston Magazine's blog is the talk of the towns with the latest event photos, calendar listings, and conversations for the people who make things happen in Wellesley and Weston.
