Lancaster County Soy Bean Fields
Pumpkins and Corn in Lancaster County
Of course I am still here; what would make you think otherwise? Just busy! Trying to fit all into the schedule here at the Harvest Moon Bed and Breakfast. It has been a fun summer, yet all good things come to an end... sadly, the kids are back in school... And I am reminded of that STAPLES commercial where the father is dancing through the aisles to, "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" ... that would be me!

So in all seriousness, It really is my most favorite time... The time of harvest, the time of changing seasons, the time of great color and the time of family gatherings. These next four months will bring us around huddled with one another as we watch the football games and listen to the marching band at the school. My oldest will tell me that before it gets to late we have to go pick out a Christmas Tree... or there will be no good ones to choose from. It will be a time where we sit at the table again... carving pumpkins and trying for the perfect Jack-O-Lantern.

And as we bend the corner from fall to winter, the holidays are upon us with the thrill of another Christmas, (and another year to decorate the house once again with antiques of long ago). Christmas is really that special here in Lancaster County... Our bed and breakfast is a place to begin your hunt for the perfect special gift for someone...And the food... you know I am all about the food here... Roast Turkey and Pork, with all the trimmings and trappings, Christmas Cookies and of course egg nog!

I know... it's still August, however I get a little excited... maybe you can tell... but hey that's me!
