First Day of Fall

September 16, 2012

Life has been really busy lately.  I’ve been working full-time on a contract job,  doing project management for a large health plan the last few weeks.   Unfortunately, that has meant that Belle of the Ball has had to take a bit of a backseat as it’s been hard to find the time and energy to post. (Someone’s got to pay the bills around here.)

But as I mentioned before, fall is one of my favorite times of the year.  And with the official first day fall (a holiday in its own right, as far as I’m concerned), less than a week away, it’s a perfect reason to celebrate.

If you’re anything like me, you already have your fall decorations out, transitioned to your fall wardrobe  and are anxious for the season premieres of all your fall shows.

Although, let’s face it, most people are eeking out the last little bit of summer in these final days of sunshine even with the hint of cool crispness that’s in the air.

I don’t blame those people.  Don’t get me wrong, I had a great summer, filled with lots of inspiration, crafting, weddings and parties.  But now that summer is over, it’s time to look forward to having a fabulous fall too.

Here are some ideas that I plan on making time for this fall:
