Fall Inspiration + Warm, Cozy Vibes for Halloween

I've been thinking of how I want to incorporate the seasons into this blog.  After all, what is nature without seasons?  I have so many feels when each season comes, but I have a special fondness for fall.  Here's to a little fall inspiration and warm, cozy vibes! :)

What's not to love? Pumpkin spiced lattes, cinnamon brooms, and candied apples all make me salivate for sweater weather.

I use two signs to guide me and validate when I'm on the right path in life.  Whether it be a solution to a problem or the path I'm taking with writing.  Hot air balloons and that magical feeling of fall.

It's not so much the look of fall, though I love the warm colors, it's the feel of fall that tells me I am truly aligned with the universe and on the right path.  You know that feeling I'm talking about, don't you?

Warm, cozy vibes.  Like you can open a window and magic will waft in like warm, apple pie.  Like the crisp fall air is bringing you back to life and making you want to snuggle up and cuddle with the ones you love.

My favorite holiday fits snug as a bug right into the magic of fall too.  Since I was a little girl, Halloween has always been my favorite holiday.  I love ghost stories, scary movies, and throwing mini Halloween parties with my girls.

This year I won't get to be with them.  I'm here in Black Mountain and they're over there in Florida.  Things are so different now.  One thing remains the same.  Fall magic.  It's a constant full moon at Halloween, in which I can count on to come back around and surprise me.

It knocks on my door, all dressed up in a new costume, and yells trick or treat!  I love it.
Crisp Fall Colors and Warm Hygge Style Sweater Weather + Fall Leaf Wooden Plank Display

Crisp Fall Leaves Turning Colors

Nothing says autumn like a fall leaf.  They are beautiful, crisp, and whimsical.  I can imagine them swirling like magic as you rake up the turning leaves.  It's one of the fun things you can do with your kids or significant other.  You can play in the leaves together while you're cleaning them up.  Fun plus makes for some great autumn pictures!
A Woodland Themed Coffee Cup and an Herbal Cup of Green Matcha Tea for Health Vibes

Warm and Cozy Green Matcha Tea on the Porch

Tea or coffee on the porch.  So warm and cozy!  Sometimes, on days when it gets too chilly, I just wrap up in a warm blanket.  The porch is a great place to read some magical realism, fairy tales, and poetry.  This time of year, I think some Edgar Allen Poe would be good.  He's got that dark vibe that's perfect for Halloween.
Wrap Yourself Up in an Indian Print Blanket for the Cold Weather

Warm and Cozy Indian Print Blanket

With sweater weather in the works, you can always bring out a comfy blanket for warmth.  I've been leaving the windows open a little in my cabin, even at night.  Just so I can curl up with a warm blankie.  I always wanted to do that in a colder climate.
Florida Skin in Orange and Gold and Woodland Themed Colors

Fall-Inspired Florida Skink

Haha, this is a Florida Skink.  He's clearly not part of my new environment in the mountains, but I loved how he blends right in with the orange rustic leaves in the nature park.  Reminds me of fall.
Ghost Decoration for the Spooky Holidays of Halloween and the Autumnal Equinox

DIY Halloween Ghost Decor

My daughter Veronica made me this homemade ghost decoration a couple years ago.  He photobombs my pictures from time to time and I'm cool with it.  As long as it's around Halloween time.  Although, sometimes he ghosts me, lol.

These are just a few inspiration pics to kick off fall.  I guess better late than never.  I'm still getting settled in my new home.  I feel like I'm on another planet, which adds a spooky vibe to this time of year.

What are your favorite autumn vibes?
