Fall Into the Season

Since the middle of summer, I have found myself overly eager for everything "Fall". I even started shopping for light jackets and boots in July. To say I love this time of year would be an understatement. The cooler weather, leaves changing and pumpkins are some of my most favorite things about these short but sweet months. That, and the fact that it's football season again. So, as a tribute to cooler weather, halloween and that sweet, fall smell in the air, I have gathered up some of my favorite things thus far.

I can't wait to try out the Carmelized-Apple Spice Cake! And how pretty is this kitchen table's center pieces and place settings? With this picture as my inspiration, my kitchen table will soon resemble this grown-up, autumn look. What are your favorite things about fall?

As always, thanks for stopping by and happy fall, everyone!

Anyone who's been to Charleston, SC knows exactly what I mean when I say, this is probably one of the most amazing places in the U.S. There is so much history and plenty of beautiful things to see. If I could live anywhere in the U.S., it would definitely be here. Great food, great, local shopping and amazing hospitality. 

With my string of vacations slowing down a bit, and football season picking up, I'll be doing a little less traveling. Other than a reunion trip to Nashville with my closest friends from college and a short trip to Fort Lauderdale, my life will be revolving around Texas Tech football. If you ever get an opportunity to visit Charleston, go! You will not want to miss out on experiencing this amazing city. Thanks for reading, everyone and have a great week!

As a tribute to the end of summer, I thought I'd share my latest island vacation with you. A few weeks back, I went on a Norwegian cruise to their private island and then to the Bahamas. We had a blast hanging out on the boat, snorkeling and relaxing on the beach. It was a much needed vacation that ended way to fast. 

I purchased a few new things for the trip that I love, and hope to get more use out of before the fall weather hits. It's the best time of year to stock up on summer items since everywhere seems to be having sales. There are even some great sales for fall items that I have taken advantage of. With that being said, happy shopping everyone and thanks for stopping by!
