It’s Time for Fall…Inside our Home!

A million thanks to At Home, for partnering with all of us on this Fall Home Tour! #myreason

You may have heard me say that Fall is my favorite. Well, it’s true. I LOVE FALL. But, if there is one downfall of living in Florida, it’s that Fall is pretty hard to come by. I mean, seriously. It’s the beginning of October, and our highs are still in the 90’s. Yeah. 

So, when it comes to my love for Fall, I have to make the season change INSIDE my house. That’s #myreason for doing all this Fall decorating! When the calendar proclaims it Fall, I start baking all things pumpkin. I change my candles and soaps to Fall scents. Hey, I would even crank our air conditioner down if my husband would let me! 

So, if you wanna see, do come along with me for a tour of Fall…inside our home!

First of all, welcome to our home!

It’s your standard 4 bedroom 2 bath house, in a cozy little development where we know our neighbors, and the resident kids play football in our front yard because it’s the biggest!

Five for Fall…PLUS a SNEAK PEEK of our Fall Front Porch!

Happy FIRST DAY OF FALL, everyone!

Happy Fall Y'all

Oh, I LOVE Fall! And while it’s kinda hard to tell here in Florida that today IS the first day of my favorite season, I AM thankful that it doesn’t feel like I’m breathing soup when I walk the dog at 5:30 in the morning anymore. (It’s the little things!) The weather will make greater strides soon enough.

As is customary, just before Fall begins, I choose five recipes from my Fabulous Fall board over on Pinterest (CLICK HERE if you want to follow it!) that I pin to all year long to test! Here’s what I chose this year:

Let’s start off with the Loaded Sweet Potato Slices.

Fall Holiday Shelf!

Happy First Day of Fall, all!

First of all, I LOVE this season – it really is my favorite!!! Second of all, it’s kinda hard to get into Fall here in Florida (the high today is slated to be 86…which is about 10 degrees cooler than highs last week…so maybe we’re getting there…but probably not!) But I don’t let the heat and humidity outside hamper the “feeling of Fall” that I like to create inside! And all of that starts with the Holiday Shelf.

If you look from left to right, you can see where I represent Halloween, Thanksgiving, and then just Fall in general. I’ve not really want to split up the decoration occasions for the shelf, because then we can’t enjoy it for any length of time. Plus, I’m not a huge Halloween fan. (Don’t shoot me.)

I snagged this cute gourd and pumpkin pair at Michael’s!
