Yesterday marks the official day of fall. It has been an amazing summer full of adventures and beautiful moments, but I am really looking forward to quiet fall afternoons cozied up under blankets with a cup of tea. For me, fall also means welcoming the rainy season back to Portland and pulling out my rain boots and pretty umbrellas.
I have been wanting to participate in the amazing Melyssa's weekly wishes link up for awhile now and today seemed like the perfect day to start a new tradition, particularly since this next week's theme is happiness.
This week, I want to embrace the changing of the seasons with open arms. Instead of resisting the end of summer, I want to be excited about the months to come and I want to enjoy all the little things autumn will bring. I want to decorate for Halloween this week and get into the spirit of chilly nights and warm colors. I also want to take the time to decorate my new little office and work and make it a space full of celebration and happiness.
Simple fall pleasures I am looking forward to right now...
cardigans & scarves
warm colors and decorations
cozy slippers and blankets
picking the perfect pumpkin
breaking out the crockpot
cute dog costumes
starting holiday crafting and gift shopping
This week, I am going to embrace all of these lovely things, decorate, and make plans for cute fall activities. It's a really simple thing, but I want to start this season off on the right foot!
What are you guys looking forward to about fall?
