Happy Fall!



Today is the first day of fall.

As in fires, soup in the crockpot, apple picking, leaves changing, cooler temperatures and pumpkin breads and pies for days.  All the amazing things that fall brings. 

I noticed when I was driving home from Target yesterday that the leaves are just starting to change.  It seems early to me, but maybe we will have a long, dry fall.  


I shared two weeks ago that I slowly slide into fall.  Unlike summer where I dive in head first, fall sneaks up on me and is a gradual thing.  I gradually start craving soup and apple pie.  The changing leaves and temperatures have me choosing cable sweaters and boots.  It is a slow change, but a good one for sure. 


I truly enjoyed this Fall Blog Hop and have rounded up my thoughts from each post in the series.  There were some great ideas ... and one or two I need to add to my long list of fall to dos.  



I loved Amanda's baked pumpkin donuts and apple cider.  I really like apple cider and boozy apple cider sounds amazing to me.  It would be perfect on the porch on a crisp, snuggly evening. 



Nancy's house looked amazing.  I love how she doesn't lose her coastal feel for the new season.  Shells and coastal colors paired with fall items are perfect for her.  I absolutely adore the garland of star fish.  #smartcookie



I love Missy's table.  Her mix of orange and brown with her blue and white does my heart good.  She is a friend and I couldn't adore her more!  Such a sweet family!



I also mixed my blue and white dishes with brown and leopard linens.  Brown and blue are a perfect match this season.  



Heather shared her list of favorite things to do for fall.  I have to say that blanket is on my favorite list for fall for sure.  Such a cozy pic, it makes me want to snuggle in and read for hours. 



Heather's house is adorable.  I absolutely love when she posts pictures of things she has done.  Of course I love her blue and white mixed with orange and a new pop for me ... black and white.  Well done Heather.  It looks amazing!!



Laura is in the process of restoring a 1927 North Carolina home.  That is an amazing undertaking.  I'm just trying to keep my 1980's home up to date.  Her chalk painted ball jars are gorgeous for this season ... those colors are perfect!



Megan has set her dining room table for fall gatherings.  Leaves, pumpkins and browns always make any table feel cozy this time of year. 



I am still working on my front door wreath ... and I do love this idea of making a frame to hang on the door.  This would be perfect for our side entry door and I could change it up as needed.  Great idea!



Michelle decorated her home in pale neutrals and I call it a major win, win!!  Of course the plaid throw had me at hello and the pumpkins and large acorns just knocked it out of the park for sure.  Love!!



Susan made this adorable sign for her table and I can promise you she made it look easier than it would turn out to be for me.  Well done Susan!  


Thank you Nancy for hosting and inspiring me to embrace this new season.  I was struggling when we were in Sea Island thinking of coming home to a new season.  A quick trip to the market fixed all that for me. 

Now to buy some boozy apple cider ingredients ... YUM!

Happy Wednesday!
