Falling for Fall

IMG_7461We’ll be “falling back” this weekend, much to my chagrin. I like daylight. I don’t mind nighttime, but it doesn’t need to arrive at 5pm! Or earlier, as it will this winter. The Northeast usually produces a gorgeous Fall season, but it’s over too quickly, as the leaves that are so vibrant are too soon on the ground.

As we “fall back”, I’m looking back over one of my favorite months of the year.IMG_7459 IMG_7469IMG_7449 IMG_7522 IMG_7524IMG_7569 IMG_7572 IMG_7577 IMG_7589Cheers to a happy Halloween, sneaking your favorite candy and cozying up by a fire. Good-bye October….it was a really good month!

What was your highlight for October?


Halloween Decor That’s Happy Not Haunted


Our neighborhood has seen a huge uptick in little kids….really little. They are SO cute!!! And, I can’t wait to see them all decked as Darth Vader, peacocks, princesses, football players, spiders, skeletons and many other creative costumes. And, because they are so young, I tend to decorate a little more “happy Halloween” than “haunted Halloween”.

With that in mind, here are some daring and darling decorations that will illicit a smile instead of a scream!
