The First Day of Autumn

Today is the first day of autumn & I couldn't be happier! Fall is my favorite season by far. The leaves change, the air gets crisp & the clothes are so much better than summer clothes! And don't even get me started on Halloween! 

This morning when we woke up, it looked like it had rained a little in the night & was delightfully foggy. I immediately pulled out the crock pot & started chopping squash, onion & celery for a soup. It was perfect for dinner!

Because we were really reveling in the fall spirit, we decided to pay a visit to our local Halloween & home goods store to check out the spooky goodies! 

And in keeping with the festive spirit of the day, a recent Etsy order arrived in my mailbox! It's like our mail woman knew! If you get the reference on this t-shirt, we can probably be fast friends! This gem will join my Black Flame Candle sweatshirt in my October outfit rotation! 

I know we still have some 70 to 80 degree days left in these last moments of summer, but I'm so glad that Autumn is here & fall weather is on the way! What are your favorites things about the fall? 

“But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.”
