It´s early to think about fall, I mean, it´s not even the middle of August. But, having visited our family in Canada last month, all stores back there had the fall decor up already and Michael’s was just filled to the brim with pretty colorful fall decor! Which I enjoy and love, but I´m also still enjoying summer over here and am not ready to move onto fall decor just yet. It is kind of strange, because by this time, I´m usually dreaming about pumpkins and all. But this year is different.

After 10 years off, and being a SAHM, I went back to work last September and the past year has been quite an experience! So, now I have the summer off, and until the 1st of September that is what it means, summer, and extra time for my family and myself, so I really want to enjoy it to the last bit. I want the summer to feel extra long if you know what I mean.
Maybe by middle of September you will see some fall inspired posts around here. I´m not sure. This year I have plans of incorporating fall in a very simple way into my decor. Very.
In the past years, around this date, I ´ve spent my days missing the for me ¨real¨ fall and wanting rainy, cloudy days and all that comes with nordic fall. Don´t get me wrong, it still is my favourite time of year and I just love nordic fall. This year though, I´ve decided not to go there, because that kind of attitude doesn´t get me anywhere. I want to live & enjoy where I am. So, instead, I´ve decided to appreciate this beachy life, even though I´m not much of a beach-go-er. I have decided to embrace the warm and bright days of fall here and admire my always green surroundings and just make the best of it!
[Please remind me of this resolution if you hear me whine in October, ok?] I really will try my best and I might even do a post about how to hygge in the spanish fall or something similar, lol!
I think I will decorate for fall in a simple way, I mean not that I ever go all out on any kind of decor. I always keep it simple. But it won´t be the typical fall decor, let´s say. There will be greens around and I actually went out of my comfort zone the other day and bought chalky paint in a mustard tone! Wow, I totally love it and I can see a lot of that with blues and still a lot of white. Let´s see.
Anyways, I just wanted to share this today with you. I know the blogging world is in total fall mode for a while now already, and don´t get me wrong, that´s great! It´s just not me this time. I want to enjoy the ¨NOW¨ and not have to think of fall posts in August… I might though, but I might not. You never know…
It all depends on where you live. Because let´s face it, if I still lived in Canada or Germany, I would be knee deep into the browns and oranges and all what has always been the ¨real¨ fall for me. Well, it isn´t anymore. The real fall is here now, where I am and it took me a while to appreciate it.
So how about you? Are you ready for fall? What is your ¨real¨ fall like?
Thanks so much for stopping by today, I really appreciate it!
On Monday I´ll be sharing a fun and easy beachy-fall DIY, please come back!
