Fall is one of my favorite times of the year,
and I am honored to be one of the 20 Texas bloggers participating in the
hosted by Katie of Let's Add Sprinkles.
There are all sorts of wonderful things that I associate with fall,
but one of my favorites is unpacking beloved
fall items that have been stashed away since last year.
I may have an idea in mind of how I want to arrange everything,
but I hold those ideas loosely.
Fall decorating should never feel complicated.
This year I enjoyed mixing neutrals with texture and black in our den-
which is one of my favorite anchoring colors in my home.
I have found in my older, low slung ranch style home
that a touch of black often pulls things together-
even when the usual fall colors are present.
However, even though I enjoy the fall decorating process, it is about
so much more than that for me at this time of year.
Fall for me is about
watching college football on television with family,
and waiting for the first norther (cold front) to blow in,and looking through cookbooks,
and thinking about my Thanksgiving menu,
and putting my raised gardening beds to rest so my skin has a rest too.
buying new black jeans,
and pulling my black boots out of the back of the closet,
and finding ways to wear all of my
turquoise jewelry .
It's about making caldo,
and pots of chili,
and pans of cornbread,
pumpkin bread at Breadsmith,
and going out to breakfast or lunch with friends.
And finally, it's about family.
It's about circling the wagons ,
and piling up on the couch under a velour throw,
and feeling grateful and blessed.
Now it's your turn.
What is fall about for you?
