Fall is my most favorite season because the beautiful change in season, cooler temperatures and the desire to create a more cozy home.
This is the time I find myself cuddling next to the fireplace in the morning with my coffee, a book, devotions or just talking to my family.
My studio calls to me even more than usual when the temperatures start to drop and the light is flooding in over all of my supplies.
Sweaters, boots, hats and bonfires are the norm and the crunching of the leaves underfoot keeps you company on early evening walks.
Fall is when we were married and when two of our babies were born.
Fall to me is a reminder to me how much the Lord loves us.
Even as everything is dying is puts on the most incredible show…for us!
I went walking through our home this morning and wanted to share just some of the little things that make fall a little more cozy.
1. I love a day when the turntable is spinning and these records are constantly playing this fall.
* The Lumineers
5. I love to cook in the fall and winter and these are a few of our favorites right now…
12. I have used essential oils in our home for as long as I can remember but I have been so much more intentional with them the past four months. I add the lemon in my water, the deep relief on my temples when I feel a headache coming on, the peppermint in the diffuser while I am working or the kids are doing homework, Thieves to ward off sickness, lavender in the diffuser and on my skin, peace and calm in Benjamin’s diffuser to help him sleep and so much more.
Some of my favorite things about fall that don’t cost almost anything…
long walks and crunching leaves
wrapped up in a blanket in front of the fire reading your favorite book
crispness in the air
leaves changing colors
bonfires and s’mores
drizzly days and time in the studio
sweaters, boots and slouchy hats
jumping in piles of leaves
gathering with family
