Well, okay, maybe it’s already been here for a while now, but as far as I’m concerned, it’s not officially fall until I break out the cozy socks, sweaters and pumpkins. I live in the south and it pretty much stays hot here all the way up until late November or December. Every now and then, like this past weekend, we have a cold front move in and it makes everything really start to feel like fall.
When I woke up Saturday morning and felt that nip in the air, I started freaking out, not in a bad way, but in a I’m about to burst because I’m so excited kind of way. I immediately lit all my pumpkin spice candles, put on some comfy leggings and socks, and turned on some hocus pocus. I just realized that October is almost halfway over and I haven’t watched hocus pocus once. That is so uncharacteristic of me! Last year, I was the first one to watch it on October 1st.
I know, I know….. I’m such a dork when it comes to holidays, but come on….they only come around once a year so just lets just enjoy it while we can! In all honesty, this post isn’t about really anything in particular, I was just so excited about the season and decided to blog about it. lol. Here are some mix matched pics I took of fall “things”. Hope you enjoy!
This is my living room. I know I said a while back that I was going to do a new home tour, but I’m still not through with “renovations” and decorating so I’m only going to show you my halloween decor. As you can probably tell by the picture, I have two framed quotes because they really spoke to me and it was just a little something that’s nice to look at every so often. The bigger frame says “Home is where the heart is,” and I really love that saying because it’s so true to who I am and what I feel.
The second frame says ” go confidently in the direction of your dreams,” and I love this because it’s a great reminder to never give up on my dreams and always strive to reach my goals in life. Both candles I have burning are pumpkin spice scented candles and I can’t for the life of me remember the brand of candle they are. Sorry. The candlestick actually belongs on my coffee table, but I moved it because I was afraid it would get knocked over by one of my rambunctious pets. I think the glitter pumpkin speaks for itself, haha.
When I said I immediately put on my comfy socks and blanket before, I wasn’t kidding as you can tell by the picture above. The “blanket” is actually a scarf but it’s so big and heavy that I could use it as a blanket. If you want to pick one up, I got it from mod cloth and if I’m not mistaken there are still some in stock.
The tree, I got from Bed, Bath and Beyond and I really love it because it looks really nice at night when you light some candles and turn off all the lights.
Eventually I decided to get off my butt and go for a drive to take in the fall sights and went on a little drive through our “mountains”. I tried to find as many colorful trees and leaves as I could, but they were really sparse that day.
I stopped on a mountain overlook of our small town and tried to get some autumn shots, but as I said before, the colors were sparse this day, but pretty nonetheless.
Lastly, I took a photo of the sun starting to set on a beautiful reddish tree. I just love the crisp, cool feel of fall weather and I’m so excited for the upcoming holidays!
