Coping with the Autumn Blues + a Giveaway


Living in Florida during the fall pretty much blows. It's still crazy hot out and there are no leaves changing into glorious shades of orange, red and gold. Even shopping for Halloween costumes for the kiddos can be quite challenging. Aubrey's first Halloween was so hot and humid even after the sun went down that it was hard to stay outside for very long. Oh and then there is all the gorgeous fall clothing and boots taunting Floridians in every store and catalog that they look. What's an original mountain girl to do when stuck in the sticky and hot sunshine state while the season is changing in pretty much the rest of the North America?

Whelp- I just drink lots of pumpkin flavored coffee and pretend that drinking hot coffee outside in the morning doesn't make me sweat a little bit. I personally have been drinking my coffee with pumpkin creamer on a daily basis. I have also made banana and pumpkin bread over the past couple of weeks and plan on making more soon. Most importantly I light pumpkin and apple crisp candles around my house to give it that warm fuzzy autumn feeling. Later this month we will go to the pumpkin festival but until then I can get my fall fix by looking at fall beautiful photographs. The lovely photographer Jill Sarah behind Adore du Jour Photo is being kind enough to offer my readers their choice of 4 of her 5x7 of 5x5 prints. She has a gorgeous variety of autumn prints in her shop but she also has many more prints that you can choose from if you'd prefer not to stick to one season. All you have to do if follow the Rafflecopter directions below and you'll be entered to win.

You can also check out Jill's Tumblr page here and her facebook page here.
