Seasonal Living: Fall Into Fall

Hot drinks, comfort foods, chunky sweaters and boots! Welcome, fall! Today is the first official day of the new season. In Atlanta, we’ve yet to fully transition to fall weather – today’s high is 82° – but I’m going to fall into fall by making my seasonal transition with my home decor and a few activities. I will admit that I jumped the gun and ordered my first pumpkin spice latte on Sept. 2, but can you blame me for not being able to resist the deliciousness.

In case you need a little seasonal inspiration, I’ve created a fall bucket list for you all (click to download a .pdf version).

Seasonal Living: Decor

My fall decor has been sitting in the Michael’s bag since I bought them weeks ago and today I’m finally pulling them out. Goodbye summer candles – hello gingered apple caramel and harvest peach fall scents. My fun and bright lemons will be packed away and replaced with these decorative pinecones and acorns that I found at the craft store. Bonus: they have a faint scent of cinnamon.  I applaud all of you who decorate with fresh flowers – I am not that kind of girl. However, I do think flower arrangements are a great addition to any room and I’m replacing my bright white hydrangeas with these sunflowers. Finally, I’m super excited about these cute little sparkly pumpkins I found.

As the temperature cools, I’ll incorporate seasonal living into the meals I prepare and will come back to share some of my favorite recipes. However, that’s it for now! Enjoy fall, everyone!

P.S. I looked everywhere for a clip of the Rugrats episode where Susie or maybe it was Angelica is singing “Fall is here, fall is here, it’s a wonderful time of year!” Bonus points to anyone who can find it.
