Fall Nesting + 20 Little Things to Love About Fall

If you’re a long time TIR follower, you know I’ve always described Fall Nesting as a mindset.

It’s an opportunity to evolve our home and daily rituals.

Fall Nesting is an invitation to create a home at a pace that is both comfortable and inspiring to us.

We won’t waste a minute rushing through it or worrying about the next season. We will focus on ways to be more present so we can enjoy the season we’re in.

Fall Nesting is about paying more attention to how our home feels to be in it every day, not just how quickly or perfectly we can get it decorated.

Fall Nesting is about NOT letting ourselves feel rushed or pressured or lacking by comparison to anyone else at all.

Just as we can sense the slow natural evolution of the seasons outside, the seasonal evolution in our home should unfold.

Even if you don’t have a fall season where you live or it’s still 100 degrees where you are, just use your imagination to prepare your mind for this season in your home.

Picture the crisp autumn air wafting through your window and the cool breezes blowing through the trees on fall evenings.

Imagine the leaves starting to change color and the sound they make crunching under your feet as they fall to the ground.

Fall Nesting + 20 Little Things to Love About Fall

Fall Nesting doesn’t depend on what you see outside your door, it’s about what you long to feel on the inside.

Let yourself take a deep breath. IWe have time.

With Fall Nesting, we slowwww down and keep the frantic pace and expectations set by the rest of the world outside our door.

When we cross the threshold of our home, all that matters is what inspires and comforts us and our family.

Fall Nesting is about fully savoring the season and falling more in love with our home a little more every day.

    Listening to my Fall Playlist pretty much on repeat
    Looking through all the fall magazines, old and new

    Layering the bedrooms with tons of texture and fall “feels”
    Loading up the bathrooms with warm scented lotions, soaps, and reed diffusers
    Seeded eucalyptus all over the place
    Finding the perfect new fall coffee mug
    Using all the cute fall emojis for texting (silly, I know! lol)

    Happy fall nesting!

    I am lucky enough to live at the beach. Fall is not popular here because we don’t want beach weather to end. However, I love Fall. It’s the one season besides Christmas I don’t mind investing in. I love that Fall decor is in season for 2-3 months. It’s warmth gets me into the kitchen cooking and baking. In two weeks the decor will come out!

    I will admit that I am not a fan of the fall. However, I live near an orchard that does a fall celebration up big-time. My absolute favorite thing whenever I visit during the autumn is enjoying a fresh cider slushy!!!

  8. L.G. Church

    Quieter times with family, less busy schedules, smell of wood burning fireplace and fire pit, being chilly and putting on more cozy layers (can only take off so many clothes when it’s too hot then still hot!, snuggling my warm fur babies, hot stews and soups simmering, beautiful autumn colors in the woods
