Easing Into Autumn

Patio Flowers for Autumn - Mums

Hi friends! Michaela here for my monthly (well, since I’ve moved it’s been sparse!) post at TIR. I certainly can’t believe it’s Fall already. Where did the summer go? As you may remember from my last post, I just moved from California to Michigan, so summer here was quite different (read: humid) than what I’m used to ;). To usher in fall, my very favorite season, I’m taking it slow and easing my way in with a few simple touches around my home.

1. Mums on my patio! Living in an apartment, it’s key to have a few colorful flowers on your deck (if you have one.) It adds so much life to the place! I found a little vintage stool at a thrift shop and placed one of my two plants in a metal basket for a bit of added texture.

2. If you’re sad to see to see summer go like I am, bid it farewell by sipping on your favorite iced tea with some yummy end-of-summer fruits in the ice cubes. This totally spices up any party you may host, because people always remember the unique details.

I used oranges and blueberries in mine. Freeze them, then add to water, lemonade or iced tea. It’s great in all three!

3. Write up your favorite fall quote on a chalkboard, or print one out to frame for a gallery wall. Inspiration comes in many forms, and walking by a cute and encouraging quote about the new season, may just help you ease into autumn as well.

Fall Nesting & 21 Days of Loving Fall

21 Days of Loving Fall - The Inspired Room Fall Series 2014

H ello, friends. So, how is everyone? Wait, what did you say? You are happy because it’s almost fall? I didn’t even notice. Bwahahahah. OK, I noticed. And I have seen your emails asking about when Fall Nesting is starting, YAY! Thank you. I’m glad you are looking forward to it as much as I am! If you aren’t a big Fall fan, thanks for putting up with me!

If you are new here, every day since the dark ages of blogging, I’ve done a Fall nesting series. It’s what I do. Some years I’ve done 31 day series and decided no one needs to hear from me 31 days in a row. I mean, honestly. I don’t need to hear from me that often.

But on the other hand, if you think about it, 31 days is just not enough. You know what I’m talking about. Fall. Enough said.

So, here’s what I’m gonna do. I’m going to be talking about Fall nesting as often as I want to. Because, it’s my blog and I can’t help it, Fall nesting only comes around once a year so I don’t want to limit it to 31 days. Every day is Fall Nesting in the Fall.

I might as well call it 90 days of Fall Nesting.

You may have notice that I already started on Fall posts, I couldn’t even wait so technically I’d say I’ve already done like seven days of Fall Nesting counting today so you just have to hang out here because Fall’s gonna happen.

I linked up six of the Fall posts I’ve already done this season, below.

This time for Fall Nesting I have a fun little series I’ll be starting soon called 21 days of Loving Fall! The posts won’t be 21 days in a row but I will share 21 posts over the fall season featuring fall things I love, fallish things I’m thinking about, or fun things my family is enjoying in the fall. It’s a win-win. If I do more than 21 days, so be it. But 21 days just feels much more manageable to me than 31 in a row, so we’ll see how this goes. I’ve always got lots of Fall and cozy and nesting and comfy stuff to talk about, so just come everyday anyway :) Fall is my favorite.

I’m super excited this year because I’ve been asked to participate in two online Fall home tours, so you will be invited over to see how I’m nesting up the house!!!! The first tour is here on September 15th and the next one (I will share different things each tour!) will be here on September 23rd! I’ll give you details so you can follow along with the other bloggers, too.

I also have some very good news coming up about a long-awaited magazine feature :). Ahhhhh!

Alrighty! Fall lovers, UNITE!

Let’s get our Fall nesting on!
