Guest Blogger: Natalie from Life @ the Stickles House

***A special thank you to Natalie for guest blogging for me this week. She and I actually went to high school together. She is mom to two of the most beautiful children I've ever seen. She's also very talented with her stationary business. You should definitely follow Natalie and her super, cute family! Thank you, Natalie!!

Hey Ya'll! I'm Natalie from Life at the Stickles House.

With Mrs. Smithwick out of town this week, she asked a few of us to guest post. I have to admit, this is my VERY FIRST guest post.. and she gave me my mind's imagination for a topic - anything I want.. nervous doesn't even begin to describe it! ha! At first, I had no clue.. then it happened.. the temps in Memphis dropped down to the 70's literally overnight. So, I knew just what I wanted to talk about.. FALL! All my favorites about my favorite season of the year!! I have been patiently.. ok, ok very impatiently.. waiting for fall to finally make his appearance. And it's finally just at the tips of my fingers. This definitely makes for one happy girl!

First up... fall fashion. I am dying to break out my sweaters and scarves! I just love all the warm, rich colors of fall apparel. There's definitely a few things that I am just adamant to add to my wardrobe in the next few weeks to prepare myself for fall...

Now, that I've caught your attention with all those beauties, let's chat about the destinations that I'm dying to visit in the next few months... With the weather getting cooler and the leaves changing colors, I just keep seeing pictures of places that are far more beautiful than my own front yard! ;)

{Maine, Vermont.. the entire Northeast.. just plain GORGEOUS!} pics via google

Oh, goodness gracious... See what I mean??! I am just beside myself in anticipation for fall! I've slowly but surely been getting myself, my family and my home ready for fall. You can bet though that there will most definitely be one accent gracing my front porch...

And let us not forget about the most important and most exciting aspect of fall...

Well, thank you all for letting me ramble on and on about my latest obsession with fall and all that it entails! I hope everyone is having a fabulous week.. and here's wishing safe travels for my sweet friend!
