Autumn, My New Favorite Season

October has come and I am loving it. This is the time of the year that the cool winds blow. I think the first thing that everybody notices when fall rolls in is the beautiful change of the colors in the trees. Those yellows, oranges and reds just pop and they are gorgeous. I can remember when I was just a wee lass my mom used to just ooh and ahhh over the fall colors. I had no idea what she was talking about, to me they were just trees but I have grown up a little since then and realized that just looking at the colors and noticing all the beauty in nature is so relaxing. Thanks Mom.

My new favorite thing about fall though, is the way that the beautiful cool weather comes and it makes me just want to open my windows, air out the house, and light some sweet smelling candles. Today I found my self walking around, inside and out, and just trying to get rid of the cobwebs. It’s time to freshen up the home and just make it seem more… comfortable. Fall is the epitome of comfortable in my eyes. Fall is just a gorgeous time of year to sit back, relax and enjoy the sights, sounds, breezes and scents of the season. The rustling of the leaves is so calming.

Another fun tidbit is how during this wonderful time of year there are so many fun decorating ideas. All you need to do is pick a few sunflowers, put them in a vase. Get some cornstalks and lean them against the house. Throw a couple of pumpkins by your front door and voila, you are set. It just makes your home just look and feel so homey.

How do you decorate? We can all use new ideas to enjoy life. I would love to hear what you enjoy most about Autumn.
