The winter baking bug has bitten me. The chronic condition has affected me every year since middle school, when it’s too cold to stay outside all day but a fun activity must still be found. Yes, there is nothing like a hot chocolate after sledding, skiing or snowboarding, but add a treat to that mix to make it even better!

It’s big-little season in the Panhellenic world! If you don’t know what that is, or if it hasn’t taken over your social media news feeds, I’ll tell you. When you join a sorority, you get paired with an older “sister” who is a mentor, a friend, and is there to help you adjust to the sorority and college life. For a week, or in my sorority’s case two weeks, the “littles” have no idea who their “bigs” are. During this time, the bigs spoil their littles, showering them with gifts, crafts and surprises.

Changing leaves; football; apples; and the fresh, crisp air are clear indicators that fall is here. But in autumn, pumpkins take the cake, cookies, lattes and so much more. I’m usually one to turn down trends, but the pumpkin-fad train is something I’ll gladly ride.

Sound Tribe Sector 9 and Umphrey’s McGee electrify lights and concertgoers
There is nothing quite like a seeing a jam band live. You have to understand that you don’t know what you’re going to get, see or hear, but the experience is going to be amazing. No two sets are ever the same, the lighting and visuals will captivate you, and the crowd will be notably friendly. It’s an overly positive, addictive and very beautiful atmosphere. Viewing a jam band like Sound Tribe Sector 9, also known as STS9, or Umphrey’s McGee is something that anyone who loves musical exploration should put on their bucket list.

As the sisterhood chair of Delta Phi Epsilon, I plan fun events for our sisters. This past weekend I planned a potluck picnic at Kelly Drive. It seemed like the quintessential outdoor weekend activity, perfect for the end of the summer. The perfection was dampened when Mother Nature got in the way and decided to rain on our parade.

Some snuggling on the couches, pausing of the movie for quick conversations, and good food was a relaxing way to spend a cloudy Sunday.

Peel the onion and thinly chop lengthwise. The smaller you slice it, the quicker it will cook! Heat the oil in the pan at a moderately high setting. Add the onions, cherry tomatoes and sugar. Halfway through the cooking process, add the balsamic vinegar. Cook until brown. The longer you cook the onions, the more of a caramelized taste you’ll get.
