I love the fall! It is my favorite season. But, of course, each season is my favorite season until the next one comes along.
The short days and long nights are soul soothing and heart warming IF you don’t have anything to do or accomplish. I am so unproductive when it is dark outside. Although I don’t, I might as well go to bed!
This year I am trying to learn to appreciate the small beauties around me. A last rose of the season, a twilight glow of a dining room vignette, and a cozy chair for reading are welcome treats to be savored during this season.
I am also buckling down and doing some things that I have been putting off. Cleaning out closets, organizing the pantry, and paring down belongings are my focus. Though I will never be a minimalist, I do want to lighten my load.
I also want to catch up on reading, making a plan for my garden and prepare for a productive spring. Although I will physically be hibernating, my mind will be active!
In all, I hope to learn to more fully appreciate the little things in life. I think fall and the coming winter will allow me time to refuel, reflect and renew.
So, as we say in the South, Happy Fall, y’all!!!
In my last post, I told you about the monthly subscription box of essential oils from Simply Earth. With the first subscription box you order, you get a Bonus Box with extra bottles, carrier oils, etc. In the monthly box, you receive four oils, six recipe cards and a few of the items needed for to make the recipes. It is fun, educational, and a good way to cut down on synthetic scents in your home.
In addition to the recipes, I have been using my all-natural oils for diffusing and adding to homemade cleaning products. If you want to give it a try, use the coupon code KAYLAP506, and you will receive a $50 voucher which can be used for $10 off your first 5 months of subscription boxes. Just go to www.simplyearth.com to learn more.
The November box will include the essential oils nutmeg, pine scotch, lime and a blend called love. Also included is soy wax, candle wicks, and dried flowers. Recipes for candles, bath melts, potpourri disks, a roll on, and a diffuser blend are included.
