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.
What are you doing to ease your way into the new season?!
