Rise of the Fall

It’s over.  Summer is over.  Yes, I know it’s 109 outside and I took my kids to the pool today, but in my heart and mind, I’ve moved on to fall.  Since fall is my absolute favorite time of the year, why not extend it out?  My A/C is on…my apple strudel candle is burning…we’re pretending it’s fall at the Shull house.  And thankfully, due to our upcoming travels, fall decor will be popping up within our house shortly and fall clothes are being purchased because our vacation destination will be chilly.  Until then…here is how I’m pretending…
 Yup…three new magazines.  Two for fall and one for Christmas :).  They make me sooooooo happy!  Andrew will tell you, one of my absolute favorite days of the year is when the September issue of Southern Living arrives in my mailbox.  That just signals fall for me.  It should be here any day now…until now, I have these three.
Last week, Bath and Body Works emailed me that their Halloween scents were on sale online and soon to be in the store.  I ordered some right then and there.  (Which Andrew didn’t seem very interested in but my friend Sarah totally got my enthusiasm.  Thank you Sarah for humoring me!)

And this is my fall candle collection (so far…this doesn’t include the scent I’m already burning…I’m sure I’ll buy several more to get me through the season).
That’s it.  I’m going to stay inside and pretend it’s lovely out.  I’m going to smell my candles and read my magazines and be totally happy.  Bliss!

    Do you have the Leaves candle by BBW? It is my absolute favorite. It smells just like Autumn.

    Mmmmmmm. Makes me excited just thinking about it. Gotta love autumn!

    P.S. It was 60 degrees here yesterday. If I close my eyes, I can EASILY pretend it's already fall.
