Fall is my favorite time of year. Leaves change colors, pumpkins begin to fill gardens, spicy aromas fill the air, and cozy blankets, sweaters and boots begin to adorn those around us.
During the harvest season I am reminded of favorite past times such as my mother dressing her girls in matching costumes for harvest festivals, bobbing for apples, making persimmon cookies, carving pumpkins, and being amazed by my dad’s largest pumpkin he grew that year; roasting pumpkin seeds, cozing up next to a crackling fire, and enjoying warm moments with family and friends generally with a cup of tea in hand.
Also during the season of fall comes the changing of decor in ones home. Some choose black, grey and oranges to mark the approaching of Halloween; while others choose gold, cream, brown and oranges to mark the celebration of Harvest. However you choose to decorate your home our hope is that you will enjoy the many creations we have created just for you.
As the busy days of summer come to an end take still moments to reflect on the gifts that you have been blessed with. The greatest gifts of all being love, family and cherished friends. Take time to thank the Lord for his daily blessings, call an old friend, cuddle up with someone special and remind them of your appreciation for them, create something new, and be thankful for each day.
May your harvest be full and your home be blessed!
