Ahhh yes my favorite time of year is here in full swing! It is time to start adding little autumnal details around the house. To change from floral scented candles to ones with a little more spice, to move from bright summer yellows to mellow fall golds, its times for mums, apples and pumpkins.
It is time for walks in the park under leaves that have been kissed with touches of red, yellow and orange. Time for Pumpkin Spice Lattes, apple ciders and cinnamon sugar doughnuts. For football games (if that's your thing - it isn't mine, but good for you) and play off baseball. The air fills with falling leaves and the smell of bonfires.
It's time to visit pumpkin patches and the apple orchard. We will eat pumpkin muffins, pumpkin soup, pumpkin bread and pumpkin pie, maybe even a whole pumpkin or two. I already have a giant bag of candy stashed in my cupboard and plans to cut out paper bats.
It's time to make caramel apples and string orange twinkle lights (well that might just be in my neighborhood!). Time to pull on tights and pull out jackets. For adding extra blankets and wearing wool sweaters.
