When I was younger I remember people telling me how time flies as you get older. They were right. This morning someone wished me “Happy November”. In that instant I shuttered at the thought that the year has flown by. Where has the time gone? Boy…I hope that doesn’t make me sound old!


It is finally starting to feel like Fall here in Southern California now that the temperatures are starting to cool off. And with Halloween now behind us, Thanksgiving will soon be here. I typically don’t decorate for Fall or Thanksgiving, which is a surprise given that it is my favorite time of the year, but I fell head over heels for this simple vignette found on the Southern Living website. I might just need to change my ways and go shopping for some Fall decorations. Do you decorate for Fall? Do you go all out or just add a simple decoration or two?

    Boy, can I relate to how quickly time flies, especially when you know you have less and less of it left in your life. As for decorating for fall, yes, I do! It’s easy to do, unlike Christmas decor which is so much work!

      You are right, Christmas is a lot of work and I think that is one of the main reasons I don’t decorate for fall. But maybe a simple decoration or two will do.
      I might subconsciously be saving my energy for Christmas! I love Christmas and everything that comes along with it. I can’t wait for it..it will be here before you know it.

    It’s my favorite time of year, so yes, I add natures bounty, such as pumpkins in a bowl and such around. My daughter-in-law gave me a taxidermy pheasant (something I had mentioned I wanted) and that makes the dining room table simple. “Redfern” [pheasant’s name] takes center stage and leaves, acorns and pomegranates are the finishing decor.
    I work with a ton of 20-30 somethings and they all say time flies so it doesn’t make me feel old to marvel that the year is coming to a close! 🙂

      I hear you….and I’m the same way. I lose track of time so quickly also. You’re one step a head of me with at least a few things. At the rate I am going I might have to bypass Thanksgiving all together and just focus in on Christmas!
