Yearning for fall

About this time every year I get a craving - for crisp autumn air, crackling leaves, a scarf around my neck, and a cup of cider in my hand. That's my time of year. However, in reality, there will be at least another month and a half of summer heat before fall makes it's appearance.

I decided to make a treasury list on Etsy, just to let myself daydream a little - it was really fun to do (I'd never made one before!), and it made me even more excited for fall!
(First row: necklace, cozy, photo, bag; Second row: ring, candle, necklace, hat Third row: fondue pot, photo, trench coat, scarf)


Fall is when I'm at my happiest, and that's what this list reflects - things that make me happy.

Are you yearning for fall like me? Do you have a favorite season? Do you start wishing it here months in advance?

Fall is when I'm happiest, too! I've never been able to figure out why that is. I'm kind of torn now, though... I want it to hurry up and be fall, but at the same time I want it to stay summer so I can stay home with my babies longer!

Also? That turquoise necklace? LOOOOOOVE!

After last week's ridiculous heat wave I was like - bring on fall!! But now that our temps have normalized, I can handle another month of summer.

Fall is definitely my fave season, though. I love the cool, crisp temps, the smells & sounds of fallen leaves, and the beautiful colors of the leaves turning! And the seasonal drinks at Starbucks. I love me some pumpkin spice latte. :)

Yes! I want fall, too. I don't like sweating the minute I walk outside. And sometimes it is just too gosh darn hot to go outside and enjoy the sun. We get out so much more in the fall. Come on, September!

And now I want a green coat this year. Love it! I'm kind of in the fall mindset myself and we are supposed to have a gorgeous one up here, so we'll see how much I love it :)

I'm a fall girl, too. No, thanks on all this heat! Give me sweaters & leggings & boots, please.

We've had the WORST SUMMER EVER. Rain, rain and more rain. So no, I'm not ready for Fall and even less ready for the WINTER that comes after fall. I want summer please :(

BUT I do usually love fall it's just this summer has had such crappy weather so far I'd really like it to smarten up first.

While this summer has been fun and nice, I think that I'll definitely be ready for fall. It is a wonderful time of year. Love this collage.
