Hello Monday…and hello readers!
I already told you guys that I am not a Summer girl (read here for proof!) But lately I have been up to some serious fall dreaming. I love a bit of chill in the air, that sense of quiet and renewal that always accompanies fall, the festivities that are abundant that time of the year…..I love it all! Here’s a few things that I am especially looking forward to for the fall….a few sparks for your own daydreaming if you are more fond of fall as well
Scarves and cowls up to my ears!
I crave a warm coziness that takes up my entire neck! Cool breeze through my hair, chill on my face, toasty neck! Doesn’t that sound lovely?….it does.
So I guess that means I need to get crocheting huh?

A mug or thermos filled with hot steaming coffee, or tea, or cider
The best part of an unbelievable chill in your home is having an excuse to fill your belly with hot goodness ! It almost doesn’t matter what it is…coffee, hot chocolate, tea….or soup! I want to cuddle up on the couch with a full mug or go adventure with Matt with a thermos filled to the brim!

Warm shades and lots of layering!
As hot as it is here in the Florida Summer, you want to wear as few layers as possible, and light colors to bounce the hot sun away from you. Fall means fashion freedom! I love to layer, and when it’s not hot as heck I have the opportunity to do that! I also get to wear warm and dark shades ( in layers! ) without feeling like Wednesday Adams bringing the mood down with all the darkness…ya know?

Cozy blankets, fresh, hot from the dryer
This is one of the best parts about cold weather…especially because we plan to lower our energy bill by not constantly running the heat this season! Oh man. Seriously if you need to relax, and want to feel incredibly cozy….toss your comforter or bedspread into the dryer for about ten minutes before you snuggle in to be…best sleep of your life!
Daisy doesn’t mind the warm bedding either! She’s LOVES it! She frolics through them when I put them on the bed. It’s the cutest thing….I will be posting a video of this adorable behavior!

I know that people still wear these all sorts of cute ways during the warmer months but I’m not one of them….I just can’t hang with even one more layer!
Last year I really got comfortable in tights…I bought all sorts of colors! Tights are such an awesome way to add a little bit more color to an outfit or solve a too-short dress issue. LOVE! :)

Matt and I love to go on bike rides together! It’s one of our favorite free date options. I can’t wait to bring out the bikes, pack up a thermos of fresh (hot!) yumminess and some festive cinnamon something or other….and high tail it down to the lake for a fall picnic! Let the days of bike riding out cares away begin!

Cinnamon flavored everything!
The official flavor of fall is cinnamon in my opinion. I want to bake it in to everything (ah baking! another pass time that is perfect for chilly weather!) add it to my coffee, let a few sticks simmer on the stove to “flavor” my home…perfection!
