A Few Fall Favorites

When one loves a season as much as I love fall, one is bound to have a few special favorite things that make said season even more special, don't you think? I do too. And here are a few of my favorite things I look forward to every fall. Oh. And I am not affiliated with any of these things. I just really like them!

This. This is my very favorite scent of Bath and Body soap.
Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin.
It is perfect. Not too sweet. You know what I mean?

I am always thrilled when I can fill our candy dish with Reese's Pumpkins.
And this year, we found white chocolate covered Reese's Ghosts!
Cute and delicious. : )

Every year I treat myself to a new fall shirt from Life Is Good.
I have a pretty good collection, but I must say, this one is my favorite.

Ahhhh.  It has always been the smallest things that make me the happiest.
Really.
I look forward to my cup of afternoon coffee every single day.
And during fall...when I can use my cute autumn mugs...this one I found on Amazon...
and enjoy an autumn flavored snack...I look forward to it even more.

And this.
This is a gift from my hubby.
He knows my love of fall.
And when we were in Las Vegas this summer, and strolled into the store and found this amazing bag sitting on the shelf, he bought it for me.
Just because.
I kept it in my closet until September first.
And I adore it.
And him. : )

Finally, this.
This candle is the scent of Home.
Our home.
I know my children will forever associate this fragrance with their childhoods and their family and their home.
I have burned this candle in our home for as long as I can remember.
Spiced Pumpkin is our very favorite candle ever.
I would burn it all year if I could.
And maybe I will.
Because. Spiced Pumpkin.

And there you are.
A few of this fall lovin' girl's favorite things.
I would love to hear about some of your favorites, my friends.
Happy Fall!!!!

  6. OH how I love the scents of the season. I love your sweet loves! I love it that you are so intentional about every season. Your kids are so blessed. My mama was like that. Every season was special to her. I didn't do much of that with my kids. I wish I had. Now I am very intentional with my grandchildren.

  18. So those spiced pumpkin donuts? They remind me of (and make me CRAVE) the spiced, sugar donuts from this little apple orchard my mom use to buy each fall. I think I need her to buy some and ship them down to Texas...

    Enjoy your season. Love the purse!
