Fall is in the Air......

When September 1st hits, I consider it FALL!!  I know technically the first day of fall isn't until September 23rd, and YES, I am very aware that the temps are still reaching a scorching 97 degrees here in GA......but it's SEPTEMBER!!!  We are in the last quadrant of the year!!  This is when it is SUPPOSED to cool off, and the leaves are SUPPOSED to start changing!  (Hello mother nature!!  are you taking notes!!!)  It's when I break out my cinnamon candles, and start digging for my scarves! It's when I start scouting out the biggest pumpkins and reworking my table arrangements!!    Not only does this month bring the tease of the upcoming holidays, it also holds many celebratory moments!!  My birthday is this month.....Daddy K and I married in this month....and MOST importantly college FOOTBALL begins this month!!!!  Do I even need to mention there is less than 24 hours until Alabama kicks off!!!  Ohhhh September, how I have been waiting for you!!!!

This time of year gets me in the mood!!!......

The mood to change my wardrobe!!! 
Someone please buy me these boots!!

Or this jacket!!!  

Or this gorgeous grey scarf!!

It puts me in the mood seasonally decorate!!

What a beautiful centerpiece!  I'm in LOVE with this color palate!!

I need this on my front door!!

My front porch could definitely use a little basket love!!

mmm...cinnamon sticks wrapped around vanilla candles!!  I can smell it now!!!

It puts me in the mood for some comfort food!!

Who can resist a Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate!

Or a giant slice of a Caramel Apple Cream Cheese Cookie Bar!!  (Need I say more??)

It puts me in the mood to really take in my surroundings!!

Mother Nature.....I want a Fall that looks exactly like this!! I will accept nothing less!!  :)

Last, but certainly not least, Fall puts me in the mood for FOOTBALL!!!!!!!

I can't wait to be sitting in this gorgeous stadium, surrounded by thousands of people cheering for the Heart of Alabama!! ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!!

I really think Julia needs this outfit to start out the season!!

Well....this about wraps up what Fall means to does it inspire you??

  3. We finally had some cooler weather up here in OK and we went to our first football game this weekend (Geaux Tigers ;) ) so I am SO in the mood for fall! Thanks for the great inspiration photos.

  4. I love fall too! I have definitely started "celebrating" even here in FL. I love that green jacket.

  5. I SO just redid my table centerpiece on September 1st. Fall inspires me! :) Great inspirational photos!

  6. I love that twig wreath and the pumpkin centerpiece. May be I could try making that twig wreath. I have some twigs at home that I had gathered for something else but I won't dare to do it now. We have relatives visiting us. They already think I am crazy. I don't want to confirm that.

  7. That scarf is fantastic ... I'm so ready for fall!

  8. Totally loving those boots and the jacket! Oh and those Caramel Apple Cream Cheese bars...yum! Thanks for sharing your inspiration!
