Are You Ready for Some Football?


Crisp air, crunchy leaves, hot apple cider – there’s a lot to love about fall. It also happens to coincide with what some of us consider the best season of the year: football season. College games have already started and the NFL kicked off last night with Giants vs. Cowboys. Whether you’ll be camped out in your driveway or outside the stadium, these crafts, recipes, and activities will give you something to cheer for off the field.
