That special time of year when there is an autumn glow.
There is just a magic in the colors of autumn and the light reflected from them. This time of year as the days grow shorter and the evening calls for lamps and candles lit, I get such joy out of the golden glow of all my fall goodies around the house. Even the kids comment on how cozy everything is and how nice it is to come home after a long day into a home that feels so welcoming. That is our goal as mothers isn't it? To provide a place of beauty and rest for the family.
Even little spooks seem less spooky in the glow of a candle.
Golden lights reflect a warmth that I want all visitors to feel in my home. I like the kids and their friends and our extended family to feel wrapped in love and safety here.
Our house is decorated with things found along the road of life. Nothing fancy and much of it free to us.
But we do rejoice in the celebration of all holidays here. Making things special for the kids is one of my biggest joys. Of course I get a kick out of it too so I do it for myself and hubby as well. After all we are the biggest kids around here.
