Not too long ago we passed the first official day of fall. Isn’t it crazy how fast this year is flying by? It seriously seems like yesterday that I was decorating our Christmas tree!
Well, as many of you already know, I love this time of year. I don’t do a whole lot of holiday decorating throughout the year, but I do decorate for fall and Christmas. I just feel like adding some themed decorations makes it feel more like fall. It’s important where I’m from because I’m originally from the Midwest (Oklahoma) and our “fall” weather consists of temperatures that are still in the 80s and 90s. We don’t begin to cool off until late October to mid-November…and there are even years when we aren’t experiencing fall like temperatures until mid- December.
Therefore, decorating for the fall and winter seasons has always been important to me…it gets me “in the spirit,” I guess! Additionally, now that I have children, it has become more important to me because I can still remember the excitement I felt when my mom would start decorating for fall and winter…it meant Christmas was coming! So, this is something I want to carry on for my children. I want them to experience the excitement that I did at this time of year.
