This time of year is just so comforting and this year especially our Fall colors are breathtakingly beautiful. We have had such a great long time of warm, dry weather – it appears as though the trees are expressing their appreciation too.

The first of October every year, I love preparing our home with all my Fall decorations, mixed in with a few Halloween decorations here and there and light all my candles (battery that is – for safety of our fragile old house). It’s just the beginning of cozy-down time.
