Warm and cozy throw blankets are a must have in our home during the colder months. The children wrap up in them to cozy near the fire, read a book or take an afternoon rest. I enjoy curling up under them with a hot cup of coffee in the early mornings or even wrapping one around my shoulders for a few minutes to sit on the porch.

The simplest way to decorate for any season is to take a look at what nature has to offer. The cooler mornings, and the changing of the leaves has me in the fall spirit. I am not one to go out and purchase a lot of fall decor or to have totes stuffed away full of fall decor. So, I look to nature and the abundance of what it has to offer to help decorate the home in a beautiful way for the season.
I really love to use candles in our home but I have been trying to be much more aware of what we use in our home. Many candles are made with ingredients that I don’t want burning in our home.

Cool breezes blow across the way, morning are filled with heavy fog in the low valleys and evening sunsets come much earlier. The first glowing fire of the season has already been made in the fireplace and the wood pile has dwindled and been added to.
