Falling into Fall

Fall has always been my favorite time of year. Back in Florida you had to wait till November to feel any hint of fall. Now living in St. Louis you start to feel the fall much sooner, usually by the end of September. I was thinking about Halloween and all the decorations I have to celebrate my favorite holiday this past weekend. I had a talk with myself, which I have frequently, and decided I wasn't going to put up any of my fall and Halloween decorations until the very end of September or the beginning of October. And then I went to the mall that day and saw that every store seemed to be taking a big leap ahead and had fall and Halloween merchandise out already. In August. BEFORE Labor Day.

Anyone else think that fall is coming much sooner this year then in past years?

I do love so many elements of the fall season, these are just a few.

How cute is this little guy? Check out this Etsy store

Favorite movie and I get to watch it October-December!

Only time I'm always aching to get into Starbucks

I love the fall foliage in North Carolina's mountains, fall leaves, cinnamon smells, dresses with tights, boots, apple and pumpkin picking with my hubby, Halloween decorations EVERYWHERE (This is Halloween, this is halloween :) and all the great pumpkin treats!

Do you love the fall time? What are your favorite fall treats and activities?



  1. Fall is my favorite time of year! I love everything about it ~ the cool air, the smells, the colors, Halloween & oh yes, Starbucks pumpkin spice lattes!
