I’m hoping you’ll allow me one more fall themed post! The Japanese maple tree in our front yard is on fire right now, and I couldn’t help grabbing my camera. This past summer I posted a list of all the things I love about summer, and now I want to do the same for fall since it is my favorite! What would you include on your fall love list? Did I miss anything?

You guys, there’s a crazy amount of beautiful stuff on the ground outside our house right now. We haven’t even hit maximum fall foliage color yet, so it’s only going to get better! Here’s a small sampling. Gorgeous right? I’m constantly resisting the urge to drag it all inside and keep it forever. Fall is the best season, don’t you agree?

I know it’s annoyingly early to be talking about Christmasy things, so please forgive me. I’m just really excited about my new holiday line, and I can’t wait any longer to share it. I’ve got eight new cards in the shop—the most new cards at one time ever! Each is available individually or as a boxed set of 6.
By the way, most of the holiday cards I have leftover from last year (the ones not pictured below) are discontinued, and I have limited quantities. Grab them quick if you want them!

I carved my pumpkin today, and I went branchy this year. Mmm… nothing says fall like that candle-in-a-pumpkin smell. How are you decorating yours? Happy Halloween!

1. Fall color is slowly creeping into the leaves around here!
2. My Dad just published the second book in his kids book series, Never Give Up. It’s a great read that’s packed with outdoorsy adventures and excitement—perfect for the boy scout in your life. I loved designing the cover for him again! (This is how the cover for the first book in the series turned out.)
3. One of my chickens’ favorite pastimes is digging through piles of leaves. They stir them up and shred them into bits, and chicken poop + shredded leaves = nice compost for my garden. (No eggs yet though!)
