Welcome, Autumn

I am extremely excited that the official season of Fall is now here, and I thought I'd share with you a few photos of little ways I have decorated to welcome Fall into our home.

Our apartment door

This is a music box from my childhood. It's a little silly, but I can't resist putting it out each year. It plays the tune of "Fly Me to the Moon." I have memories as a little girl of winding it up and just watching it go round and round until the tune finished.

From our patio, we can see a little tree where the leaves are just starting to turn...

My very favorite scented candles to burn are the spicy Fall scents. I am nearly constantly burning these gorgeous scents all through September, October, and November. I love the Yankee candle scent of 'Spiced Pumpkin,' but my mom turned me on to Yankee's scent which is now my ultimate favorite--'Harvest.'

Soon October will be here and I need to find a nearby family orchard where Matt and I can go pick our own apples and pumpkins. I love carving pumpkins, even if Matt doesn't really participate. He does like it when I make roasted pumpkins seeds to snack on!

On my fall agenda:
~Make homemade caramel apples
~Enjoy hot cider
~Take a hay ride
~Decorate some dish towels with cross-stitched pumpkins
~Take Annabelle on lots of walks to enjoy the crisp weather and to get her plenty of exercise before winter comes!

What are some ways you enjoy Fall?

This post makes me feel so cozy. Fall is my favorite time of year! I love hot cider, pumpkin carving, and Halloween festivities. :)
