I feel like Fall just showed up all the sudden. I’m still wishing I was beside the lake and enjoying the sun while my kids spend hours in the water and having fun.
I’m learning the growing pains of entrepreneur life and managing family time.
I have more to share about that in an upcoming post.
For now, today I share with you about getting ready for fall. Here’s the thing, it doesn’t need to be expensive or extravagant and if you found me on Pinterest I’m far from perfect when it comes to home decor.
If it makes you happy and feels at home with what you have, that’s all that matters.
Here’s the things I do to get ready for fall.
Fall Decor: I spent LOTS of money (I’ll openly admit) at the dollar store and make my own floral arrangements.
I love fresh flowers, fake one’s will have to do for now. Back to spending a lot at the dollar store, I stretch my decor pieces or remake them with what I have to put them out every year. One year I grew pumpkins so I only put out a little bit of decor.
I look forward to the day we move our TV OFF the mantel and I can freely decorate.
Back to Routine: Anyone else excited about having more of a routine? I have a hard time with change, however if there’s a routine that can fall into place with that change, thank you very much.
I’m really getting at is back to school. Although, part of the reason this post is so delayed is the changes in my 2 youngest. The other 2 at home have become incredibly demanding. I love them, just lots more work all the sudden without big brother around. Just the realities of family life.
Harvesting the Fall Harvest: As you saw from my summer gardening post, I have a decent crop this year. With doing a fall garden clean up I found some herbs to process and late producing tomatoes. I had volunteer tomato plants in my greenhouse and the transplanting worked!
Bringing in the fall harvest also includes, canning! Just like the above, there’s lots of Fall Harvest to process. This year I was blessed to have applesauce canned for me. We also canned Salsa with my sister in law and we are still using up our grape harvest canning from last year.
As you can see, it’s been busy here in our home. Since we got back from holidays it’s been GO GO GO. We have a Reno that’s almost completed, 2 family birthdays, back to school shopping, 2 weddings this month and guests coming out of town.
As busy as it is, I’m thankful for each and every part of it as we have things to look forward to and people to share life with. So much content coming I can’t wait to share more here on the blog!
What are your FAVORITE things for Fall? I forgot to add DIY…I’m hoping to find time for that soon!
