the smell of fall
I am so excited for this time of year I can't stand it. I love the smell of fall scents. Now that I am addicted to the oil fragrance option for the home (previous post) thanks to my friend Sonja D. I went to Bath and Body today to get the new pumpkin scent. They are having the best deal. Buy two oils ($7.50 each) and get the warmer free. It is really a great way to try out the oils. I bought the pumpkin and cinnamon & clove and mixed them together. It smelt like Halloween already.
If you try out the oils let me know how you liked them.

I filled in my past week with the labor day festivities with my family, if you want to look back and read. What a great weekend!

Jeremy and I frove up the canyon tonight and the trees are already starting to change. I'll bet you're going to have a beautiful fall in Maryland. I just love this time of year!

Fall is my favorite season too!

My mom use to have the Hobo come and visit us the first day of Fall. He would always bring us treats and we would build a little campfire and have tin foil dinners with hot apple cider.

Very fond memory :)

Pumpkin Spice is my favorite scent!!! Last year, I bought 6 Pumpkin Spice candles just so I wouldn't run out.

Fall is something I will miss about Utah. No such thing here in Hawaii. I will have to get some oils though to help create the feeling. It's funny you commented on my blog because I love reading yours! You have been to a lot of states

How do you use the oil? Is there something to put it on or burn? I have wall plug ins from B&B and I love them, but they aren't fall smells.

I LOVE fall, love the mums here!

Fall is my very favorite time of year. Sadly, it is all too brief in Utah. We seem to go very quickly from the heat of summer to the snow. You will undoubtedly have a gorgeous fall where you are -- enjoy!

I think that calls for a trip to B&B. I love their candles, they put out so much aroma! I have gingeroot and citrus, they wake you right up and get rid of any wet diaper smells that may be lingering from the previous night!

I grew up in Albuquergue, NM--well until I was twelve. I used to go with my dad in his red pickup to Farmington for his work trips when I was little--miss those fresh roasted green chilis!! Sounds like a fab trip.

I'm so in love with all things fall-related that I get sad about it being over before it even starts. For example, it's still warm and summer-like down where we live, but the mountains are showing patches of orange already. By the time it feels like fall down here, it will be over in the canyon. Aargh. I hate how fleeting it is.

I'll have to check out those scents next time I go to Bath & Body. I'm rather particular about smells and can't take too much cinnamon, but I love having a hint of it at home.

Sigh...Fall is the season that is sadly missing here in Dallas. It seems to go right from blazing sticky heat to yucky brown blustery grey "winter". I miss Ohio with the crisp sunny football days, new sweaters and trees of all colors. We made Buckeye candy and picked apples every year. I can also remember GIANT leaf piles with 5 or more kids from my street in it at one time. My mom and I would always judge which neighbor's tree was the best tree of the season. It would be fun to give awards in your neighborhood for best in show!
