Hello Fall

Fall has become my favorite season.  I love the colors, football, and everything pumpkin.  I love wearing cozy sweaters and boots and curling up on the couch under a blanket with a good book or movie (although there aren't many opportunities to do this since having children).  I especially love when it's cool enough for the boots and sweater but still sunny.  I love taking a walk and hearing the crunch of leaves underfoot.

I put up my fall decorations a few weeks ago. I can't do a whole lot, though, because I really only have my fireplace mantel and the front porch. We don't have a coffee table (we got rid of one that was too big and didn't go with anything else and haven't replaced it yet) or any end/side/occasional tables.



After having weeks and weeks of beautiful, sunny weather we finally got some rain today and it was finally cool enough to don said sweater and boots.  And after being out of town the last two weekends, I'm very much looking forward to a very relaxing fall Saturday tomorrow.  I plan to bake pumpkin cream cheese muffins and hang out in my pjs by the fire with a cup of pumpkin flavored coffee (if I don't get around to buying pumpkin spice coffee creamer by tomorrow I'm going to try just using half and half and pumpkin pie spice-we'll see), with my new Spiced Pumpkin Pie candle burning.  Yay for fall.
