As a person who has lived in Florida for most of her life, I have a deep-rooted appreciation for well defined seasons. I have always loved Fall because it was just one step closer to Christmas. However now, I can say I love Fall for her own beautiful self. Fall in Virginia means cool weather, warm clothes, and changing leaves. Its a wonderful thing.
I have really struggled with motivation to do much of anything lately, but I did manage to get my Fall decorations down from the attic and finally get put them up. I adore decorating for the seasons, but The Fall-Halloween-Thanksgiving-Christmas gambit is my absolute favorite. The house really feels like home this time of year. I love collecting fun knickknacks throughout the year and finally getting to give them a proper home once the season permits. I have always loved the little wooden blocks that had quotes and sayings on them, and with the completion of my first woodworking project, I had a few end pieces that I thought I could make use out of. So, I stained them with the leftover stain, and took my faithful sharpie to map out the letters. I’m really happy with the end result. <3
So, Welcome Fall! Bring on the pumpkins!
