Instead of attempting grand designs and spectacular seasonal sensations, we’ve just welcomed Fall into our house with a variety of simple, subtle gestures this year. And it’s settling in just fine. A few pumpkins scattered around, a little sentimental expression written by hand, and suddenly, it’s cozy.

I’ve bought my first sweater of the season, and the kids and I have already started begging my husband to let us turn on the heat, so I guess Fall has officially arrived here in East Tennessee! I’m looking forward to all the fun and planning on savoring every seasonal second. Hope you are, too!
