Happy September 1st!
I love this time of year. It’s seriously my favorite. :)
I’ve already started adding fall touches to our home. I am especially excited about decorating our new front porch with mums and pumpkins. I got these wreathes at TJ Maxx the other day, and I think they will really look good on our new doors!
But since we still have a little painting to do out there, for now I am working on the inside of my house.
For our fireplace mantel, I am bringing back some decor from last year and then adding a few new touches.
I like using as many natural elements in my house as possible. It’s so easy to just go outside and clip a few branches off a tree and stick them in a vase! And it almost always looks beautiful! There is nothing prettier than God’s handiwork! :)
I also pulled some of our cozy fall blankets and pillows out of the closet for those chilly mornings and night. There is nothing better than snuggling with a blanket on the couch!
And what is fall without some good smelling candles?! I have been lighting this amazingly-good fragrance from Yankee Candle. Have you tried Lush Berries? It’s from the new 2015 Fall Line. It smells like I have a fresh berry cobbler baking in the oven! YUM! What is your favorite Yankee candle to burn in the fall?
And to celebrate the first day of September, I am making a big pot o’chili! I have such wonderful memories of smelling chili cooking on the stove when I was a child. Just. feels. like. home.
Have you been adding any fall touches to your house yet? I know that many of you are still holding on to hotter temperatures, but it has been feeling chilly in the mornings and evenings in these parts, and I LOVE IT!
Now I can’t wait to enjoy the fall festivals, pumpkin patches, and kettle corn! #lifeisgood
