Autumn is my favorite season.
I love the crispness of the wind in my face,
the colors of brilliant leaves against a cerulean or soft slate sky,
the poignant smell of dying leaved laced with a hint of wood smoke,
the honk of geese flying south and the crunch of leaves under my feet...
It is the only season that I consistently bring inside my home,
adding its splashes of color and scent
to my usual decor.
Here are some of the autumny things I've been enjoying in my home:
arranging mini pumpkins
(or, as Little Man calls them, punk-mins)
in the autumn sun in my kitchen
filling the air with spicy, autumn scents
melted in my new scentsy warmer
admiring bright yellow mums in a red vase
(they're starting to look a little sad, but that's okay.
they've been cheerfully bright for over a week now.)
making apple-shaped grilled cheese sandwiches
for Little Man
getting ready to turn three boxes of beautiful golden delicious apples
picked by my aunt and cousins
into sauce, butter, and crisp
How are you enjoying autumn this year?
