This is such a pretty time to get outside and enjoy nature. Every year, when we were little, my family would visit the State Capital for an afternoon and collect the fallen chestnuts while we explored the grounds.
We never knew what to do with them once we found them, but they always seemed so rich and beautiful.
If my memory serves....I think my siblings and I ended up just throwing them at one another.
A really easy way to display them is to load up a vase and add a candle.
This season holds so much beauty and I'm always reminded of family traditions and memories during this time.
