Fall Home Tour 2015 - Part One

Monday, October 12, 2015

 Mr. Ramblings has often said, "everyone needs a base!"
That place you can return, where you feel grounded, connected, and safe,
...like perhaps a family home you grew up in.

I think that "Fall" is my base season.
Each year I approach it with ardent anticipation!

It's the season of harvest,

It's my season of contentment,
where everything is both wonderfully familiar,
 yet fresh and new at the same time!

It's the season of
returning to some of the bases we hail from,
...our roots,
...a time for reunions and homecomings.

.It's the season of productivity and preparation
 before settling in for the winter.

And the thing I love most about Fall,
it's the perfect time to create a home environment blanketed
in warmth and coziness...

...a home welcoming and inviting,
that will hopefully always render a base or haven
for those we love!

Thanks for joining me on this little tour.
I suppose it's no secret, I'm quite smitten with Fall!  :)

Hope you'll pop back in, mid-week, for Part Two.

And if you would like to follow me via email,
I've worked out the kinks to my Email Subsription.

  13. Rhonda, your home is beautiful and I love all of your fall touches. And your description of fall is absolutely spot on...."It's the season of productivity and preparation before settling in for the winter."
