Ushering In A New Season

I’m usually super meticulous and wait until the actual first day of the new season to decorate. I have a major work event on Saturday and know that I will not have the time or the energy this weekend to devote to changing things over so I spent a little time all week putting away my summer decor and putting out my Fall Decor. Fall is my favorite season, so I always do the most! 

Here is our Fall 2018 Decor outside of our home:

I actually plan to put one of my favorite crystals in the bowl the Buddha is holding on the porch. Although maybe not because if someone steals it I’m going to be upset!

We moved in our house in 2012, and every year I’ve collected things to add to our collection. I usually get my goods from these places: Homegoods, TJ Maxx, Marshall, Target, Pier 1, Crate & Barrel and Michaels. Each year I add 1 – 2 pieces from the collection. I am looking for a sign to hang above our stove as well as an additional fall themed towel for our 1st Floor bathroom.

This Fall I will accomplish the following things:

(1) Scrapbooking some of the events from 2018 including our Family Reunion and our time in California.

(2) Finish my home organization project. The only other spaces I have to do are our bedroom closet (which currently houses our travel stuff), our basement backroom and our basement storage, our dining room built in. The list was double what is currently! Super excited to be over halfway done with this project. I truly believe that in order to make room for new things we have to clear out the old. I also believe that we have to literally make room in our lives for the things we want. This includes physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally making space. Longer post about that coming soon!

(3) Organize my digital photos and videos. I have over 20,000. I tried to start his project this summer and abandoned it after about 100 photos end. My goal is to get this project done before the end of the year.

(4) Host a few Vision Board Parties! I will have more information available the first week of October if you’re interested in booking me to host a Vision Party for you individually or for a group of your friends.

Those are my four major goals for this new season. New seasons always feel like a fresh start but especially Fall. Fall has traditionally been considered the season of Harvest. I’ve already started switching my Summer and Fall clothes out (although it was 90 degrees today in Chicago). I even purchased a few Fall colored Apple Watch Bands. I purchase most of my bands from Amazon.com. If you’re interested in which brands specifically I buy comment below or shoot me an e-mail donnienicolesmith@gmail.com and I’m happy to get you that information.

What are you looking forward to this Fall?
