All Things Autumn

Right now, we are soaking up all things Autumn. I thank my lucky stars every time I step outside and am not hit like a ton of bricks by the oppressive southern heat. 

This weekend, we had a few neighbors over for a bonfire. I made some fall inspired snacks and a cocktail that I highly recommend trying: equal parts cranberry cider (you can substitute this with apple cider- or any cider, really), ginger ale and spiced rum, garnished with a cinnamon stick and an apple wedge. Wish that I had taken a pic, but it totally slipped my mind must have been the rum.

We also decorated our home for the glorious season of fall! A few leaf garlands, apple cinnamon candles, a bowl of gourds, a fall inspired table runner and pumpkins and mums for our front porch complete our autumn look. 

This year, we decided to paint our pumpkins. I think that we might still carve a couple when Halloween gets closer. I used acrylic paint to add our monogram to one pumpkin and decorated the other pumpkin with puff paint.

Penny is also loving fall! Did I forget to mention, we named our new puppy Penelope Rose? Penny really suits her, almost as much as the pink puffy vest that she is rocking below. I know, you might think it is over-the-top, but the evenings are crisp and the poor little girl shivers! I also got lots of strange looks this weekend, because I wear Penny around on the front of me in a Baby Bjorn type contraption made for puppies (I promise I will post a pic of this soon). She won't let me put her down and I need my hands free... At least that's what I tell people.

What are you doing to let a little fall into your life?
