Hi friends! I can’t believe it is already Thursday! I don’t know what in the heck is wrong with me this week but I have just NOT been able to get this first Fall post done and posted. I had initially planned on starting my Fall decor home series on Tuesday but that obviously didn’t happen. You know those dreams where you are running yet you never actually get anywhere. That is exactly how I have felt all week long. Just walking in circles and thinking in circles but not getting a darn thing done. Praying it isn’t the fact that I became one year closer to turning 40 on Tuesday. Not. Excited. About. That. At. All.
Sooo back to being overwhelmed… I’ve just had one of those weeks. I absolutely love everything that we do and everything that we have going on but I think I have finally hit my “I cannot do or take on or handle one more thing” point. It’s strange because I feel like those moments for me always come at the strangest times. They should come when things are bad or hard but for me they come when I finally get through the mess and actually have a moment to sit down and think. So I decided I want some simplicity. Probably not in the same way that one would define the word “simplicity” but in my own “we still lead crazy lives BUT I want some basic life moments” kind of way. Mark and I sat down last night with a pen and paper and decided to make some life changes moving forward. We are still tweaking a thing or two but I am going to do a blog post all about it soon.
Today I am so excited to share the very first room in my Fall & Halloween home tour! For the first time pretty much ever, I have decided to add a touch of Halloween to my Fall decor. And I am LOVING it! The girls actually are too! Winnie giggled yesterday afternoon when she came into the kitchen and saw the skulls and witch shoes. Oh and she told me that the skull pillow in our foyer was “pretty creepy but he doesn’t scare me or anything… can I put him in my room???”. LOL. She is such a little mess.
First up, I am sharing our living room! I have gone back and tweaked this space a couple hundred times since I first started it several weeks ago. After stopping to buy pumpkins for the third time yesterday along with a HUGE HomeGoods haul, I finally considered it complete! Here is a peek at our very colorful Fall/Halloween living room…
