I know, fall posts already.
BUT hear me out! I am still enjoying the summer-like weather we are having here currently while sipping on iced coffee and wearing shorts. We had a fun Labor Day weekend with pool side extravaganza’s and lots of family time. But when I see the corn start to change and all things pumpkin floating around on Pinterest, I can’t help but get a little excited.
Fall is my favorite season, hands down, for a billion reasons. The first and most obvious reason? Cooler temperatures. Summer spent by the pool on 95 degree days are fantastic, but if I can’t be poolside, then I don’t want to be out in the heat. I know. I’m with Matt Bellasai on this one.
The very first thing I do when the weather turns cooler is add some blankets to our bed. I LOVE being snuggled under a pile of blankets at night. The same goes in the living room- I add a blanket or two to our blanket ladder and the kids don’t hesitate to grab them and snuggle up in the evenings. It’s nice to be able to snuggle up with a good book in bed, too!
My other fall favorite is changing up my coffee creamer. I am an iced coffee person normally, but when the temperatures dip down I find myself craving pumpkin spice, peppermint mocha, or something cinnamon. I am hoping to try this recipe for homemade pumpkin spice creamer this week!
Fall fashion is my most favorite of all the seasons. Boots, chunky cardigans, skinny jeans, leggings, tunics and scarves– I can hardly wait to start making the most of my wardrobe. Soon I will pack away my shorts and tanks and fill my dresser with scarves and boot socks– I can’t wait!
