As of this week, it is officially FALL. Usually I have all my decor up by this point, so I am really slacking this year!
Here are my four FAVORITE things about Fall.
1. The clothes. HELLO! Cable knit sweaters. Leggings. Plaid. BOOTS. I just got Aubrey AND myself some new riding boots & I'm beyond thrilled to be able to start wearing them. (80 degrees is "cool" enough for riding boots, right?!)
Aubrey's have a bow on the back. Adorable!
2.) The food. Chili & cornbread - enough said. Oh, and pumpkin spice flavored EVERYTHING. I have the best recipe ever for pumpkin bread - we devour loaves of it each Fall. :)
3.) The weather. So cool & crisp - but not freezing. Dream weather! In Sacramento we don't get the nice cool Fall weather until mid-late October, but it's been in the low 80's recently & it's already got me excited! There's also nothing better than when the leaves start changing color & the delightful crunchy noise they make when you step on them.
4.) Picking out a Halloween costume. I usually have our costumes picked out months before Halloween & this year was no exception. This time I had the pleasure of discovering THIS etsy shop that makes all sorts of amazing costumes. We aren't talking the cheapy Party City costumes - this is good quality stuff that fellow mom Eva designs & hand sews herself. We got our costumes custom designed by her this year & I'm SO excited to show them to you - but you'll have to wait another month ;)
Here are some goodies she has in her shop:
Baby ice cream cones! Ah! So cute.
And a little renaissance prince. Precious.
Not only does she make costumes, she makes blankets & accessories as well. Eva was kind enough to include a coupon code for you to use for free shipping: "TALESFREESHIPPING"
Needless to say, I'm thrilled it's Fall and can't wait for all the memories to be made this this season.
