Can you believe it’s October? I don’t know about you, but this summer flew by. Of course, multiple deadlines took up most of my time, so that could explain why this year has moved along so quickly.
But October is here and I’m excited. Autumn has always been my favorite season. Maybe it’s the cooler temperatures after a long summer or the lovely shades of yellow, red and orange when the leaves begin to change. The scent of a burning fire always makes me think of football games and Thanksgiving.
Surprisingly enough, the temperatures here in Florida haven’t been beastly! Warm, compared to some parts of the country, but cool enough to open my doors and windows in the early morning. This is certainly a welcome treat.
Now if you’ve been to Florida, you know we don’t get the changing foliage like up north. While I don’t rake leaves, I do miss the color changes. So how do I get my fall fix? I decorate. A LOT. But I enjoy every moment.
Since I love to decorate for the fall season, I’m always looking for new ideas. Tell me, how do you decorate for the season? Do you decorate? And if so, what is your favorite?
