Falling for Fall

The older I get, the more I love fall.

At the height of summer, I dread the end of summer and the start of fall. But at some point during the month of August, my mind begins to accept the inevitable, and I start looking forward to the next season, decorating the inside of our home, and the sense of routine that fall brings. Slowly, I begin pulling out the old fall décor and looking at new and upcoming fall trends. I love changing décor in our home according to the seasons. Fall brings pumpkins, dried flowers, and candles into our home. I think these small changes can bring a sense of warm and cozy, which helps me come back inside after the busy outdoor months of summer.

I compiled a list of all the things I love about fall, clearly I love all things food and holidays!

  • Fall Decorating!!!
  • The trees exploding with bright reds, yellow, and orange leaves.
  • Cool nights and warm days.
  • Delicious crisp apples.
  • Dried flowers.
  • Watching Planes, Trains, & Automobiles [this is one of our favorite movies of all time!].
  • Binging on Halloween candy.
  • Snuggling a cold puppy.
  • Going to the farm stand and picking out pumpkins and fall flowers to decorate the front door entry.
  • Coming inside after a summer outside.
  • Pulling out the warm, cozy sweaters and blankets.
  • Comfort food [need I say more]!
  • Thanksgiving.
  • Watching football on a Sunday afternoon.
  • Squash; Acorn, Butternut, Delicata, Spaghetti.
  • Fall scented candles.
