I feel incredibly lucky to live in the northeast part of the country – Maryland to be exact – we have four separate seasons and fall is definitely my favorite. Cooler temps, beautiful orange, red, and gold leaves, pumpkin patches……I could go on for hours. It was really hard to narrow down a list of fall favorites, but here are a few of our latest crushes on everything fall:
1 - Pumpkin Oatmeal – the perfect breakfast when cooler temps strike – pumpkin plus dates in one bowl makes the perfect pair.
2 - The cutest fall campfire mugs from Chalk Full of Love – we are smitten with the “It’s Fall Y’all” mug!
3 - Bergamot, Lavender, and Rosemary essential oils in my diffuser.
4 - A great article on goal setting from Lara Casey - it's important to gain perspective about what's important before the holiday frenzy consumes us.
5 - Mexican Rice Stir-fry – This easy, quick, and yummy dinner has been on repeat in my house lately – we just cook some chicken breasts to add to the top for the meat eaters in the family.
6 - Our Focus Bracelet in the perfect fall stones - Dalmatian Jasper, Fire Agate, and Lava stone. It also doubles as an essential oil diffuser bracelet - use your favorite oil combos or try the combo in #3 above on a diffuser bracelet.
7 - Nothing says fall like a big bowl of warm soup! And after living 7 years of my life in Asia, I am extremely fond of ramen noodles - and not the 25 cent fried packages we grew up with as kids. Fresh, delicious ramen noodles are the best, but subbing a healthier brown rice version is just as good. We eat this kind in my house all the time (Costco sells them in big packs at a great price!). The lovely Candice Kumai shares her version of quick and easy ramen - healthy and delicious!
8 - A fun post from our friends at Milso Box – The Ultimate Guide to Enjoying Fall as a Military Spouse – and big hugs for including Charliemadison bracelet stacks!
