Cozy Fall Feeling

Fall is my favorite time of year. We have the house decorated and the spicy apple scent of candles is in the air. Fall in southern California feels like summer and we still wear shorts but things begin to change.

Cooler evenings and the light changes hanging lower in the afternoons. The fall garden is changing. Summer crops come out and our cooler weather crops spring to life.

I love to cook this time of year more than any other. With cooling weather I turn my oven back on and enjoy baking and trying new recipes. I envy those wearing jackets and slippers as we are still warm but soon we will get cool temperatures and I think nothing makes a house cozy like a crisp day and the oven on with a delicous meal cooking inside.

I love the colors of fall. The warm hues just speak to me. Warm glow or orange and gold lights and fall decor is my favorite decorating theme of the year.

Did you happen to check out the fall snack mix recipe? Warning!! It is addictive.

What a wonderful post! And I adore your fall display with the fairy lights - gorgeous!! I'm always so happy when fall comes not only because of the beautiful foliage but also, like you, because I can use my oven again! Roasted meats and veggies, pizza, lasagna, cookies....and I'm going to try out a few new bread recipes this year. Love your blog!

Your home is always cozy! I hate wearing outerwear of any kind. And don't wear sweaters or coats unless I have to. Always been that way.

The perfect word for autumn from your post: warm
"warm hues, still warm, warm glow"
Even in the comments "warm mood, cozy warm"
Gotta love warm.

I like fall too. Scented candles do a nice trick for filling the senses! It's raining and cool here.

I'm not a cook, but with these cooler days, I am doing a lot of baking.

I plan on making the autumn snack mix this weekend. We're finally going on a beach trip for fall break. This is my favorite time of the year to go to the beach!

Bonjour chère amie,

Une très jolie publication... Je suis heureuse que vous aimiez l'automne. En ce qui me concerne, je n'aime pas particulièrement cette saison qui me rend tellement nostalgique. Je préfère le printemps.
Toutefois, je vous rejoins lorsque vous dîtes que vous aimez cuisiner en cette période de l'année. Il en est de même pour moi !
J'apprécie sincèrement toutes vos magnifiques photos.

Gros bisous ❀ ♡ ❀
