Today is the first day of fall, the season that I have called my favorite since childhood.A claim I based mainly on the fact that my birthday is in October... solid logic for a 6 year old. I have since grown to love Autumn. The air becomes crisp, flavors more bold, and our schedule a little bit calmer.
Over time I've also come to favor a more natural nod to the season. A simple fur blanket tossed over the wicker basket in the foyer, leopard print pillows in the family room, and hues of yellow, orange, brown & rust peppered around the house in organic forms.
I am looking forward to grabbing a few neutral-toned pumpkins and potted mums to round out this years decorations and letting the glittered pumpkins & faux leave garland sit this year out.
One thing I am not willing to go without though is Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea. The tin sits out on our kitchen counter adding a pop of auburn color & easy access to the yumminess inside.
With a cup of tea in hand, I am ready to welcome the changing season. After all Fall means longalls & brown gingham,
comfy sweaters with fluffy accessories,
