Well it happens every year, fall arrives, and summer fades away.
I love the different seasons, and in the Pacific Northwest you know fall is here when the nights get down right chilly and the afternoons are warm.
You have to wear your layers!
In my state, of Washington, apples are king! Every fall there is an array of apples at the farmer's markets! We are famous for our apple produce in Washington State! I do love to find a u-pick farm. It is so much fun to pick our own apples stomping around in the muddy orchards in our boots, looking for the best ones to take home. Then return to the barn to sip and sample some apple cider

Sunday drives in the fall are one of my favorites! In Washington I can reach the mountains within 1-2 hours time! The forests and mountains show off their new amber colors this time of year!

Soy candles, with wonderful
fall fragrances? Yes please!
Candles add that extra coziness with a
fresh scent. Everyone's taste is different,
you just have to go smell for yourself!😄
In addition, Homegoods has a wonderful selection of soy candles year round.
Take a sniff around!🍁
I love a fall campfire!

Fall feels like new beginnings!
The trees go through their transformation loosing their leaves after putting on a final color show. We switch out our shorts and t-shirts, for jeans and sweaters. The flip flops get pushed to the back of the closet, and we dust off our loafers and boots. Hot soups and game day gatherings, replace cool salads and BBQs.
I am ready for fall, are you?
Next month... ✨Holiday Mantel Scapes ✨
