Autumn Leaves

9/23/2013


First, I have to apologize because we forgot to pick a winner for the Goldeluxe giveaway on Friday. Things are getting a little crazy around here. I'm heading the Bay Area today and Kirby is in full wedding mode! Katie Appleyard, you are the lucky winner of the pretty Chandelier Prism necklace! Congrats and we will be in touch! Thank you everyone for playing! :)

Yesterday was the first day of autumn. It's my favorite season, here's why:

- The smell of wood burning fireplaces.

- The crisp, coolness in the air.

- The warm hues of red, orange and yellow.

- The taste of a pumpkin spice latte.

- The promise of the holidays right around the corner.

- The season that Matt and I said "I Do."

What are you looking forward to this fall?

P.S. We are traveling to the Bay Area today to spend time with my parents, and go to Kirby's wedding on Saturday in Carmel(!!!!!) An added bonus is that I'll be able to enjoy a little snippet of the gorgeous autumn sights and smells (we don't have seasons in San Diego, and fall is something I've truly missed since we've moved down here).

The scents and colors of fall are amazing, but I'm a summer girl.

so pretty. our leaves haven't turned yet, but i am looking forward to it - i think that is my favorite part. taking walks in fall (when it's not raining) is also my favorite. and the pumpkin patch of course.
