Fall Forever

So something happens from October 31-November 1, that makes people go Christmas crazy, and it is something I have never understood. November is one of the best months. The days get crisper, the leaves have changed and started to fall, and time seems to slow down. But for some reason, people think that after Halloween, fall is over and Christmas is the next big thing. WHAT HAPPENED TO THANKSGIVING?

Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday (other than the meaning behind Christmas and Easter). The weather, the food, the family gatherings, the food, the parade, the football, the food! Everything about Thanksgiving is wonderful. It’s one of the few times of the year the extended family makes an effort to get together, to eat, to laugh, to enjoy each other’s company. It is also the time we should make a genuine effort to show our gratitude. As Christians, we should constantly be thanking God for his grace upon grace that he showers upon us, but Thanksgiving should be the time, regardless of what is happening in life, to really show gratitude. We have so much to be thankful for.

When November 1st rolled around, people and businesses all over started putting up Christmas decorations and prepping for holiday shopping and I was over here on Robin Lane screaming….FALL FOREVER!

I love pumpkins and mums, and pilgrims, and turkeys, and leaves, and orange, red, and yellow hues. So this post is dedicated to my love of fall and to show you guys how fall takes over…literally.

The fireplace I refinished over the summer was awesome to decorate for fall!Β IMG_3195

Momo’s dinette and the back porch also got some love.

I do a tablescape for each season/holiday on our dining room table. I do one in September for fall, in general, and then when November hits, I do a Thanksgiving one.

We will be living it up, fall style, on Robin Lane until the Friday after Thanksgiving when I lovingly pack up my favorite season and prepare for Christmas. But until then…FALL FOREVER.
