Since Fall is (hopefully) just around the corner,

I want to share with y’all my five must haves for my favorite season!

1. DW Homes Spiced Pumpkin Candle

For me, Fall is really more about the feeling. I grew up in California and now I live in Texas so sometimes it feels more like Fall in my home than it actually does outside. “There’s nothing like running the AC while burning a pumpkin candle,” said no one ever! I am usually able to find these candles in a pumpkin scent at my local Dollar Tree (how cute are those mini Mason jars?!) but I’m looking forward to trying the one by DW Homes this year.

2. Trader Joe’s Harvest Blend Herbal Tea

If I recall correctly, these run for $1.99 a box at my local TJ’s and this year I plan on stocking up. I am just finishing my stash from last year and can’t wait to buy more. This tea has a rich, spicy aroma and flavor – it’s pretty much Fall in a cup and I don’t see how you could wrong with that!




3. Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Spice Coffee

DISCLAIMER: This is not the best coffee around (sorry, just had to add that in for my Austin friends), but I drink this more for the tradition than anything else. I plan on blending mine with some coconut milk, pure vanilla extract and a pinch of pumpkin pie spice.









4. Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes from Practical Paleo

This recipe is one of my favorites! I will be topping my pancakes with butter, a little bit of pumpkin pie spice and pure maple syrup – yum!

5. It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

So many things change as we grow older so engaging in past sentiments is dear to my heart. Growing up, this movie was a classic in my household and I plan to continue the tradition. Just thinking of Charlie Brown saying, “I got a rock,” puts a smile on my face.
