Every year around this time I start to nest. Not like I'm knocked up nest, but settle in for the 'colder months'. I start to get my home in order and create a happy and comfortable environment since more time is spent inside during the later seasons. And I must admit, it is the final 4 months of the year that my home really does feel the most cozy.
I try to start in September, even though there are usually several, if not most, days that are summer-like. But fall and spring seem to get the short end of the stick in Colorado; we are lucky if we get to experience the season(s) at all. So I make it happen inside my home, even if the world outside is still running in shorts through sprinklers.
Last fall was the first time in my adult life that I was living in a house, so I went all out! The decorations and ideas I came up seemed endless! Fall was September, then of course Halloween decorations were added in October. November was back to fall but only until Thanksgiving, then BAM! Christmas went up.
I have so many things I want to share about what I found and what I plan to do this year! So many blog posts that I just never got around to because I was in a weird writer's slump that affected all areas of my writing life (even Facebook statuses... seriously).
Here are a couple of the pictures I took last year (it's amazing how good they look on a phone and how awful they look on the computer!) and a list of things I want to write about. Oh the thrifty DIY crafty ideas are already flowing and I can't wait to share!!
