I know it's kind of early....



but I am soooo looking forward to September and this Fall. I've already said a couple of times in the last few months that I am SO OVER this Summer and its crappy, rainy weather, and because of that trauma my mind has completely skipped August and is now yearning for Autumn.

Now, luckily for me, I will be absent for most of August since I will be over in Europe livin' it up (4 days!!!), so by the time I get back and get over my jet lag, it will be September and I can officially begin my 2 months of sheer bliss (there's really no other way to describe it, I can't stress enough how much I love this Season.) Don't get me wrong, I'm looking forward to hanging out on the beaches of Croatia and roaming the hot summer streets of Rome and Florence, over there I will indulge in all that Summer has to offer, but as for here in Nova Scotia, Summer is dead to me (ha!)

Anyway, in my Fall daydreams I often think about:

*sweaters and coats with hoods
*a chill in the air (the best feeling)
*wearing layers
*drinking coffee to warm up
*finger gloves
*shorter days
*beautiful rich colours
*leaves
*candles at night
*pumpkins and corn
*golden fields and bare branches
*tv shows returning
*back to school and regular routines
*the most beautiful light of the year
*cinnamon and spice smell
*thanksgiving and halloween
*being out in nature and not feeling uncomfortable from bugs, mugginess or heat
*boots
*martha stewart magazine (October's edition especially)
*comfort foods and special meals
*decorating and crafts
*feeling happy and giddy while walking home from work

and so much more.

Is anyone else looking forward to Fall?

Anyway, I'll try to get on and blog (or more likely Tweet) a couple of times while I'm in Italy, but I'm betting that the lack of Internet access and the abundance of AWESOMENESS is going to keep me away from the online world, which is a very, very good thing. So I will leave you with some of my Fall-ish Etsy Favs, these things all make me very very happy.

So until next time, ciao bella!
