My absolute favorite time of the year is FALL! I try with all my might and will power to hold off on bringing my fall/halloween decor out until after the 1st of October. I was so excited this morning when I realized that today would be the perfect day to break it all out. Here in Southern California, the only sign of fall we really get is dry Santa Ana winds, but I LOVE it. The "Santa Anas", as my sister Nicole and I would call it (we got that from watching the movie The Holiday), remind me of happy times, homemade soup, and an urge to get into my kitchen to bake! I remember being a little girl and my parents would open up all of the windows and doors to let the Santa Anas blow right through our house (happy sighhhhhhhh....)

Anyway, here are some of my fall decorations, have a good weekend everybody!

I LOVE FALL, we live in Michigan and it's the best. The pumkin patches, the warm cider, apple cinnamon donuts, the decor. Ah! I wish it lasted for 6 months. Love your decor. Happy Fall to you too.

I can't wait to have kids! I saw all these ADORABLE decorations at the store the other day and knew if I put them up in the house Nate would be like... "what the hell?" ;) At least if I had kids I'd have an excuse for it!

Q: I love that tall frame in the middle... Would you mind sharing what the dimensions of that photo is? Actually they all seem "taller" than normal... :-)

Bethany, The sizes of frames on our fireplace are full frame (no cropping) so all of the images are true to size. The big one is 20x30, the one to the left is 16x24 and the one on the right is the only one cropped at a 5x7.
