Hello September, when is Fall going to get here?

Happy Labor Day! It is the symbolic end of the summer.  I say symbolic due to the fact that, here in Florida, we will continue to experience summer-like weather until at least November (ugh!).  I get so jealous when I see all the Fall weather energy sweeping over other states, those cooler evenings and spectrum of leaves changing colors, sweaters and hats.  I love all of these things, but will have to wait quite a while to enjoy them here at home.  Here in Florida, we can expect at least a few more months of flip-flop weather (although lets be honest, Floridians will wear flip-flops no matter what the temp).  For those that know me well, it is no secret that I am not a Florida weather lover.  I am dying to relocate to a more 4-seasonal mountain-y type climate, but our family is here and moving with kiddos is really really hard.   So in the meantime, I have to live vicariously through those of you that do get a lovely Fall Season, by ogling your amazing pics and blog posts about the changes.  Since, today it my Pinterest Monday Inspiration Post, and I am a 7.5 month, sweating, pregnant girl, wishing for a weather change, it's an all about Fall today.  These are some inspiring pics of things that I am looking forward to this Fall, whenever it arrives here.

Lovely fall leaves with a little something extra

Pretty artsy Pumpkin Projects

Lots of chilly morning deer spottings as they come out to find more grass.  Oh and if I lived somewhere with a mountain behind it, that would be fine by me.

Getting lots of new yummy yarns to make warm fuzzy things in the evenings.

I wish I had a reason to wear arm warmers other than a fashion statement (and sweating inside them).

Pretty, fuzzy, warm blanket cuddles.  Dont you love when your toes peek through ones like these?

Going Camping!  My favorite way to spend a weekend in the Fall.

Decorating the house with Autumn-y things, like these lovely felt leaves.

  1. enjoyed this post and all the lovely links! thank you so much!

  2. Lovely blog post! I just returned from TN where the leaves are barely yellow/golden in spots. I know that in a week, it will look like fall as the temps were 5 degrees lower each day we were there! Wish we could go back in October but not until Thanksgiving! So, I will live fall through my MIL's pictures! :)

    And maybe create some art using fall colors for inspiration!
