Hello all! I’m Dawn from The Alternative Wife, and I’m so thrilled to be here today guest posting for the lovely Shannon today while she is away. Shannon has such an incredible eye for discovering beautiful things and offers the most inspirational posts I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. Every day that I stop by The Simply Luxurious Life I leave feeling instantly uplifted and inspired. So to say it’s an honor for me to be here today is a gross understatement.
Today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite things about the fall season. After a long and hot summer season and a few weeks of back and forth weather it finally seems as if fall is here to stay in New York. Which has me briskly packing away the sundresses and flip flops and in turn yearning for the cozy comforts of the season.
Fall is such an introspective time of year for me. It’s the time of year that I am inspired the most whether it be cooking, photography, or art. Maybe it’s getting back in touch with nature and having the time to explore new things. I’m not quite sure but there’s just something about this season that brings out the creative in me. Here are some the things that I most look forward to all year long.
Discovering Quaint Little Towns On Fall Foliage Drives
Even though I live in a big city, luckily there are lots of cute little towns, and many still undiscovered by me, a short drive away.
An annual family affair. We make a whole day of it and visit some wineries while we’re at it.
Long Strolls In The Woods Followed By A Delicious Hot Treat
I just love pulling on different layers of clothing and heading outdoors for a long brisk stroll. And what better thing to return to than a hot drink to warm the body & soul.
After a summer filled with long days outdoors & weekend excursions, fall is finally the time when I retreat to my home. I really have made my home my haven with a comfy, plush couch, throw blankets and pillows, dark woods, candles and an overall warm inviting ambiance. Nothing is better than spending an entire weekend indoors curled up on the couch watching a movie, reading, or napping. I’d love to know, what are your favorite things about the fall season? And thank you so much Shannon for having me here on your lovely blog. It’s been a real pleasure and a thrill! xoxo
