Fall is the best time of the year. Period. The weather is crisp and cooling, leaves are changing colors and my favorite foods are in abundance. What’s that one food people eat a lot during autumn? It’s, um, oh yea – pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin!!! I’m that person who posts pumpkin food, decorates with pumpkins and is just plain obsessed. And I’d like to add I was on that kick way before the bandwagon came in. Just saying.
What else do I love? Rich autumn colors, acorns, fall decorations, maple flavored food, pumpkin flavored food – I think you get it. We even go apple picking! Believe it or not in Southern California there’s a few places to go. They also have pick-your-own pumpkins, autumn food and a corn maze!
There is nothing in this season I don’t like and I can’t figure out when and why I started to love fall so much. Obsessive love. Is it because I like the color orange? Maybe because I start baking more? Does it remind me of Texas and all the arts and crafts fairs? I do love the old decorations my parents gave me, like the pumpkin with the squished face in the picture below…
I’ll also try my hand at some fall crafts. Crafting isn’t my specialty, I like furbishing furniture more, but I’d love to add some homemade arts and crafts to my decor. I’m sure my husband will be thrilled to add more decor to the house! Ha!
Whatever the reason for my obsession, I’m your girl when fall comes around. I’ll show you all the pumpkin flavored things I try, bake up a storm and decorate my house to an inch of it’s life. Is it October yet?
