This time of year I feel like my house is in constant transition. I had my fall decor out. I put a lot of it away for Caleb’s birthday party this weekend. Then I whipped up all of my best spooky decor for Halloween. We will enjoy this for about two weeks, then it is back to fall and then the massive decor overhaul that is Christmas! I really do love decorating for this time of year with all of the changing of the seasons, and adore each seasons for different reasons. But, I do wish that they were spread out a little more. So I could enjoy them. This is how the calendar year goes, so there is no choice but to go with the flow. Or decorate for Christmas in July, which is not going to happen either.
I believe I got these black and white skeleton pillows from Target a few years ago. I pile them onto my fall pillows. A gray, yellow, black and white look going on. It feels right for this season.
Does anyone else feel like the weeks are speeding by? We are almost done with October already! This time of year speeds up for me so much, with back to school, then Caleb’s Birthday, Dale’s Birthday and then all of the Halloween and fall festivities we always do. Mix in the previously mentioned constant change of decor this time of year, I blink and we have 1 week to get Christmas presents under the tree and then we are saying happy new year.
I try to take in all of the holidays, otherwise they will speed by without much notice. I think that is why I love decorating for the seasons and holidays. It does get you into that spirit. Whatever it is, makes you take it all in a little more. I know I am a visual person, so having the visual of it being Halloween helps me get there mentally.
Do you go all out with decorating for Halloween?
