Our Fall Decor! + A Favorite Fall Recipe

I love love love Fall! Why?
1. Pumpkin #basic? Yeah, I don't care! There have been pumpkin candles burning on end in every room, 12 loafs of pumpkin bread baked, 4 pumpkins carved, pumpkin coffee, pumpkin bagels (yum!) and just pumpkin! 

2. Cooler weather-which we don't get a lot of down here!

3. Thanksgiving feasts

4. Family time

5. Living vicariously through everyone that lives north of the Florida/Georgia line that posts fall leaf pictures on Instagram! 

Those are a few reasons but, I also LOVE decorating! I am linking up with the girls down below for their Holiday Link Up!

  2. Fall is my favorite! But here in Chicago, it already feels like winter - snowing and 14 degrees and super windy. It was barely fall at all! :(
