Fall is finally here!

I love fall. It's my very favorite time of year and I love everything that comes along with it. Here in the Phoenix area, we finally get a break from the scorching hot temperatures, which in itself is reason to celebrate. I love pumpkin pie; the smell of cinnamon and cloves; the warm, soothing colors of fall; baking; hot chocolate; and just taking time to reflect on what we are thankful for. This year the season is even better shared with Miss Lauren.

Since we don't get the cold weather and changing of the leaves outside, I have little touches of fall all around the house...

Cute decorations! Where did you find that wreath holder? Hard to believe this is Lauren's "first" fall! Looks like she's taken a liking to Mr. Scarecrow.

Love the decorations especially the pumpkins on the table. Loved seeing Lauren standing beside the Harvest of Plenty How appropriate for her to stand there. thanks for posting. It is cold here and i am just about to light a fire and have heat on in MacLean's room. It is really really fall here in Ontario. Enjoy the season sending some cool air your way!

Your house is so cute and fall-ish! I need to gather so more decorations. We have some spider lights and that's about the extent of it! Lauren is beautiful!
