Isn’t fall just the BEST!! The chilly air, the golden leaves, the cozy sweaters, and comfy nights in, the red wine.. ohh the wine! Fall is such a relaxing time and much needed after the hustle and bustle of summer, to then settle back into the swing of school. The weather here in Ontario has remained to be stickin’ hot and humid.. so I’ve desperately been craving some cooler temperatures and to finally layer up and soak in all things pumpkin spiced!
I have to admit I’m a sucker for those artificially scented potpourri bunches you find in home decor and craft shops. They provide me with such instant gratification of that warm, cozy feeling this time of year brings. The downside.. they can be overpoweringly scented, last a few weeks at best and are pricey! The few arrangements I have around the house I’m positive I’ve had for years now and are just collecting dust.
We’ve been so fortunate here on the Pacific West Coast to have such beautiful Autumn weather and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight! Now, as much as I love long summer nights, picnics in the park and beach days.. Autumn has been, and will always be my favourite time of the year!
