There are so many reasons I love this time of year! Here are a few...

  • The flavors- it makes me so happy when I start to see things like pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin spice donuts appear on the menus. There is also something so comforting about potato soup as well!

  • The clothes- I can't wait to get out of bed on a day like this when I have to put on a sweater and a coat. Thank goodness- shorts are a temporary thing of the past! I also love Caroline in fall clothes. As much as I love a sundress on her, corduroy pants and a sweater with some cute Mary Janes are my favorite look for here. Even though pants make her legs look a thousand feet long- something she obviously did not inherit from me!

  • The decorations- Don't get me wrong, I love decking the halls for Christmas, but there is also something sort of stressful about it. Not so with fall, putting out pumpkins, scarecrows and fall leaves is pure fun! I makes my house seem so warm when I come in! The berry wreath on my door with its golds and reds and oranges is by far the favorite one in my collection!

  • The anticipation- there is something about knowing that Thanksgiving and Christmas are just on the horizon!
