Falling in Love with Fall

Today is October 1st!
I can now officially decorate for fall and can say goodbye to summer. I have really been trying to hold out til now! I think since the weather has felt so fallish the past month, it feels like fall has been her awhile already.
Over the past 4 years, I have developed a serious love for fall that I didn't even realize I had. It started when Marc and I had our 1st apartment right after we got married, and I wanted to decorate the outside of it. I went all out with the cornstalk, hay bale, pumpkins and mums! Since then my love has grown. Summer used to be my favorite season because I'm madly obsessed with the lake, but fall is in close 2nd!

Yesterday was an exciting day! I got 2 fun punkins from hobby Lobby (its all 50% off already) and my sweet hubby surprised me with two pots of beautiful yellow mums! Yay I'm so excited. I think another reason I love fall is because I'm also obsessed with the color orange, therefore ALL fall decor matches pretty much everything in my house!

Getting excited for all things Fall......

Punkins... Ahh I love them!

So Happy Fall Yall! Enjoy it before the evil cold sets in!
