Happy Fall friends! Today is the official start of the Fall season and I am ready for all the festive Fall things! Even though it is still pretty warm here for the middle of September and the leaves are just now starting to change I can’t wait to make cozy meals, drink apple cider, and start to watch all the Halloween movies. One of my favorite things right now is walking the kids to school in the morning during this time. It is truly the best and I love to hear their thoughts, what they have going on that day, and just enjoy the fresh air.
Over the weekend we spotted a few pumpkins while we were running errands and of course, had to get them. I love to put them throughout the house for small touches of Fall! Also, our mums are starting to bloom which gives me all the Fall feels.
Another way to get your house feeling like Fall is for it to smell like Fall. I used to buy all the seasonal candles from Bath and Body Works religiously, but switched and ditched the candles for many reasons. First, it is bad for our overall health to breathe in the toxic fumes that candles release, and in our case, we have kids who love to throw balls in the house and I would always worry that they would knock over a candle no matter how far out of reach that I placed it. So diffusing essential oils was a game changer and I love the ability to play around with the different oils to create your favorite scent. Below are must-have Fall oils and you will love them. You can check them out here!
Another Fall favorite of ours is baked cinnamon apples (these are Jonathan’s favorite and they remind me so much of my Grandma that I love to bake them and think of her), caramel and apples (Jordan’s favorite), and I am determined this season to make a homemade apple pie (wish me luck).
I hope you have a wonderful day, Happy Fall! XO
