My all time favorite season is Autumn! The smell of cookies and pies, Turkeys and stuffing, the leaves falling and the nice cool evening breeze just make me feel so extremely happy. I also love sweaters, scarves and boots, I can literally live in those combos. I love pumpkin spice lattes and other warm drinks while cuddling up in a blanket! My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving, its the only holiday where you are just grateful for what you have, you spend it with family and friends and you don't have to spend tons of money (unless of course you start your Christmas shopping early). This time of year just makes my heart smile, I started decorating the house already, I know I'm crazy, but if I don't start the fall decorations now they wont be up for to long, since I set out the Christmas ones the weekend after Thanksgiving! We spent the whole day, yesterday, cleaning and decluttering the house so that we can start decorating. In case you didn't notice I am also very strategic with the decorations this time of year! Haha. Anyways, I went to Target yesterday and I browsed their dollar isles and I found some awesome little projects the kids could do to put their own little stamp on this years decorations! I have so much lined up for this season! I brought some out after dinner and they were so excited! They managed to work as a team in painting this wooden turkey- which by the way I think looks pretty darn good! I am so excited that they are old enough to enjoy this kind of stuff, they insisted we go to the store and buy more projects to decorate the house.
Autumn reminds me there is so much to be grateful for and my family is at the top of the list. I can't wait to start new traditions, cook new recipes with the boys, take tons of pictures and just enjoy life. They are only this little for a short time and I intend to make the most of every moment.
What kind of traditions do you have with your family? Is there fun projects you do with your children? Whats your favorite part of Autumn? I'd love to read about them, share in the comments below.
Have wonderful first day of Autumn and a memorable season!!
