Every year as fall approaches I get extremely excited. Although living in Los Angeles doesn't provide me with a real color change - heck, we don't even have many tress here to see a change if there was one - I am still a sucker for autumn! There is a crispness in the air that hits come late September and lasts until Thanksgiving.
I am so excited that I had an opportunity to combine my adoration with fall and my love of meeting new bloggers thanks to a fall swap organized by Emma, author of Tales of an All American Girl. She paired me up with Single Mama in LA, Yolanda, who lives in a neighborhood very near mine. Since we follow each other's blogs, this was a great opportunity to meet in real life.
The swap consisted of purchasing a fall care package, whatever that meant to us. For me it means earthy/amber scents and Starbucks, so I got Yolanda a Starbucks gift card, Bath & Body Works products in Twilight Woods, an apple scented candle, and note cards that have a fall-ish look to them.
Check out these wonderful gifts that she gave me! A hoodie, scarf, cinnamon apple flavored tea with a mug to put it in, and Bath & Body Works candles in two new scents: Autumn and Leaves.
I am beyond happy with all of the amazing gifts that Yolanda got me! They are pretty awesome! As I type I am catching myself sniffing the scent of apple in the air...you know the way dogs point their nose straight up and wiggle it when they get a scent of food? So me right now!
The great part about this season is that I get to live vicariously through all of your posts. I literally get giddy when all of you East Coasters, or just anyone, anywhere that has a real fall, post pictures and talk about autumn. Any of you care to tell me what you are excited for this fall? Share a little piece of your heaven with me, pleeeeeease!
