I love a cold and rainy fall day!

I know you all are anxiously awaiting my vacation update post (ha ha) but you're going to have to wait until next week.  Today my mind is on all things fall!  It's a cold, rainy day here in NY and I've spent the afternoon decorating, drinking coffee, crocking chili, and baking cornbread.  Here's a quick glimpse of what I've been up to today.

Coffee in my new mug...
I was recently part of a mug swap and this is the beautiful mug my swap partner gave me.  It's so pretty and I swear my coffee tastes better in it!


DIY fall wreath...
I actually made something! I spent quite a bit of time today roaming around Michaels craft store and decided I would try to make my own wreath.  This is what I came up with.  I'm not really happy with how the F turned out, but other than that I'm fairly pleased.


Fall decorating...
I didn't go too crazy with my inside decorations, due in large part to the fact that an entire tote of fall decorations is lost in the abyss that is my basement.   But I think the items I did put up look pretty festive so I might just leave it as is.  Here are a few pics.  Sorry for the poor picture quality... my phone is acting up again.








Chili and corn muffins..
Great way to end the day!


I'll be honest.  I am loving this weather!  It's so nice to be cozied up under my favorite blanket writing this post.  I hope you all are having a cozy and relaxing weekend,  wherever you are and whatever your weather!

  14. I absolutely love the Fall. Probably because I was born in november. Your day sounds amazing. I miss Fall in NY. I'm in Florida where its still warm and not a seasonal change in sight.
