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!

The Not-So-Conventional Halloween

I’ve never been Trick-Or-Treating.

I know, that sounds crazy, right?

But it’s true.

My mom was one who always did her research, and she knew the actual origins of Halloween. She was always really careful with us kids, and so she didn’t want us to get mixed up in anything more than fun, and she also didn’t want us to be scared by anyone playing any pranks, or wearing really nasty costumes.

Holiday Sanity Savers

Today marks one week until Halloween. Can you believe that? 2013 has FLOWN by, as far as I’m concerned! As we draw closer to “the holidays”, I wanted to make sure that I take time to share with you my favorite “Holiday Sanity Savers”. Because, before you know it, you’ll need them! (And so will I!)

??????

Sanity is highly-prized in our home, especially in the months of October, November and December. Why? Because that’s when I get REALLY busy…which means my hubby gets really busy, too.

You regular readers know that I work full time, but from October-December, I run a great sale with my part-time photography business, because lots of folks love getting family photos for their Christmas cards! So, between those three months, I have about 20 photo shoots booked (oh, and even a December wedding this year!), in addition to my full-time job…and the blogging…and the company coming for the holidays, and the Christmas production we are a part of at church…and the Christmas shopping…and the Christmas card mailing…and the Christmas decorating…and the Christmas baking…
