welcome fall (and a freebie)

So, maybe it's not "officially" fall yet, but it sure did feel like it this weekend. On Thursday it was 88 degrees and sunny outside. By Friday, it was cloudy and cool with a high of 68 degrees!!

That's the good news.

The bad news is that because I'm in the middle of my "soft move" (temporary housing in Wilmington) I only brought enough clothes for 2 weeks to Wilmington and none of that included fall clothing. SO, I was sort of a little bit cold. But, I'm not complaining, no sir-ee.

It sort of got me thinking about all the stuff that I LOVE about fall. It's my favorite season and every year I get more and more excited about its approach. Even if it's hot where you live, it's close enough to the official start of fall to share a few pictures with y'all, right? That's what I thought. :)

I found these pretties on Pinterest. You like??

One way I've celebrated fall is by purchasing some of Bath and Body Works' fall candle line. They had mini candles 3 for $5 this weekend and I got Apple Crumble, Marshmallow Fireside, Pumpkin Caramel Latte, Hot Chocolate, Autumn and Creamy Pumpkin. (Okay, so I got 6 for $10...heh.) So far I've burned the Apple Crumble and it is amazing. Anywho...

In honor of fall's approach (and to help y'all get in a fallish mood) here are a couple pretty li'l pics for you to use on your computer as a wallpaper, screensaver or as a stock image. (PC users right-click and "save as" to use) Personal use only, please. :)

Happy Fall, y'all! Don't forget to send me your hair pics by Wednesday night if you want me to be included in the hair dare challenge post. See the original post here.


  1. I can't wait to try Marshmallow Fireside!

  2. Marshmallow Fireside? OMG. Is it normal that mouth is drooling over a candle? Or that I want to eat a fireside? Oy... I LOVE FALL!

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos with us, April. You're so kind!

  3. Pinterest was made with you in mind, I believe.


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
